NH Family Buys Luxury SUV with Digital Cash, Bitcoin

For Immediate Release:
Manchester, New Hampshire. Nov. 28, 2017.

New Hampshire is home to many early adopters and users of cryptocurrencies. One recent example is the purchase/sale of a used Lexus automobile for crypto, half Dash and half Bitcoin. Parties used their phones to easily transfer funds within a Jaxx wallet—no bank involved!

Seller Mark Warden, broker of Porcupine Real Estate, works with property buyers and sellers who will transact in Bitcoin. Buyers Matthew and Brittany Ping, of Ledgeview Commercial Partners, run a residential property management firm, manage over 100 units in Southern New Hampshire and their company accepts rental payments in both Bitcoin and Dash. Both parties moved to the Granite State because of Free State Project.

New Hampshire is home to dozens of businesses that accept payment in cryptocurrency. There are multiple BVM (bitcoin vending machines) around the state. There is even a store in Portsmouth that transacts solely in crypto: Free State Bitcoin Shoppe.

  1. The vehicle is used, not new. Try doing that with a new car at a reputable dealer. Check the latest news about how there are major problems with Bit-coin. Having stock in Gold and silver is a safe bet.

  2. As any savvy consumer knows, Ernesto my love, buying a vehicle “used” is the only way to avoid the pitfalls of new-car depreciation. It’s absolutely heart-wrenching that a shrewd dealmaker like yourself doesn’t already know that.

    Oh, and Ernesto dear? Since you’ve obviously not been paying attention, gold and silver (unlike bitcoins), haven’t seen a significant increase in value for over three years now. Certainly not enough for anyone to buy a luxury car with, used or otherwise. So what’s the controversy, sweetums? People are making money trading bitcoins these days. Isn’t having more money much better than having less? Most of us here understand that. I wonder why you can’t?

  3. Congrats to the buyers/sellers. – and – It’s okay Ernest, not everybody jumps on a Rocket Ship but I can surely say, teehee, it’s a lot of fun 😛 —->>>>>>>>>>>>>> DASH ON !!!!!

  4. Congrats to the buyers/sellers – and – Ernest, not everybody is gonna board the Rocketship and, that’s okay. You can catch a later flight. —>>>>>>>>>> DASH ON!!!

  5. Fantastic! I’m jealous, can’t wait to pay in crypto for a car myself.

  6. So they bought a used vehicle. Since both parties play with bitcoin, it really isn’t a story. Just how many people are paying rent to these people in bitcoin? Wouldn’t that be a better story?

    Ian said, “New Hampshire is home to dozens of businesses that accept payment in cryptocurrency” Who are these so called businesses? You say “dozens” but I highly doubt that.

    Ian said, “There are multiple BVM (bitcoin vending machines) around the state”. What is your definition of “multiple”? Just how many are there? I’m sure it’s not the amount you are trying to portray.

  7. A used Lexus…lol. That is hysterical. Thats a first generation.

  8. Thats a used, very first generation Lexus.

    Thanks for the loller.

  9. Jacks my sweets, I don’t want to alarm you, but did you know that the IRS has a similar order on bank deposits exceeding $10,000 in cash? I’ll leave it up to you to find out the reason why. I know you won’t, by the way.

    Anyway Jacks, I think you’re completely missing the point here again. Perhaps you should give this chart here a look/see?

    Did you notice that the graph is rapidly trending upwards, Jacks? I hope you haven’t already forgotten why that’s a good thing, sweetums. It’s really becoming quite the chore having to explain these things to you in simple terms. You’ve never once thanked me for my help, by the way. Maybe it’s time that you did. It’s almost Christmas, you know.

    Anyway Jacks, I think you’re completely missing the point here once again. Perhaps you should give this chart here a look/see?

    You really should be kinder towards the working folk, EOB. After all, those tax returns we’re forced to file every April are the main reason you’re still housed and well fed, right dear?

  12. There are dozens of places in Keene alone let alone all of New Hampshire taking Bitcoin. Some aren’t even listed on the map at this time. From Ds Caffe to Hot Hogs. There are a few others I can’t recall at the moment in Keene. There is one place outside of Keene that apparently takes it I wasn’t even aware of. There are dozens of places in Portsmith now too and of course other major cities in New Hampshire- and even small towns. Alstead has like two or three business which means 33% of of the shops are taking it. And they’re actually doing pretty well too in drawing in crowds from out of town as a result of the businesses acceptance of Bitcoin. Same thing for other businesses like Steve Wilder Auto Motive. They got a ton of new business as a result of taking Bitcoin. And then we have the older places like 101 local goods, local burger, and some others which have been taking it. There are also strictly online businesses taking it that do business all over the world headquartered in Keene that aren’t ever mentioned because they’re not retail.

  13. FTFY: Man sells used car. Accepts unorthodox payment. Leave to Free Keene to sensationalize the mundane.
