Bitcoin on Glyde

What Is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a digital currency. It can be used as payment for goods and services or exchanged for other currencies, like dollars. Learn more at Bitcoin.org.

Why did Glyde decide to add Bitcoin?

Lots of people are interested in bitcoins (see the benefits below), but until now, there hasn't been an easy way to get them. "Mining" them is a laborious process that takes technical expertise. Purchasing them is a hassle and an out-of-pocket expense.

Glyde is the first service to make it truly easy to earn bitcoins. Just take a phone or game or iPod you don't use anymore, sell it on Glyde, and withdraw your proceeds in bitcoins. There's no out-of-pocket cost or technical experience required.

How does it work on Glyde?

After you complete a sale on Glyde, you'll have the option to get paid in bitcoins or dollars. To choose Bitcoin, just enter your Bitcoin address when you withdraw. If you don't have a Bitcoin address yet, sign up at Coinbase, Blockchain, or explore more wallet options here.

What are the benefits?

As a purely digital currency, bitcoins have several features that suit Glyde's online marketplace. Here are a few benefits we think you'll enjoy.

Speed

Who doesn't like getting paid quickly? Bitcoin transfers typically take 1-2 business days on Glyde. Banks can take up to 5.

Security

Bitcoin transactions are secured by military-grade cryptography.

Control

Bitcoin transactions are person-to-person and anonymous. It's sort of like cash but made for the Internet.

Growing Spending Options

You can buy clothes, groceries, and even NBA basketball tickets with bitcoins (Go Kings!). Major retailers like Overstock.com have started accepting bitcoins and more are soon to follow.

Value

In the last 6 months, bitcoins have been steadily increasing in value. However, as with any new currency, there's volatility. Its value, as compared to the dollar, could go down.
