Meet the Spend Bitcoins Team

We are avid bitcoin enthusiasts, here to help make bitcoin easier for the masses.

About JeremyHey everyone, I’m Jeremy and I’ve been a bitcoin enthusiast since 24 cents (November 2010).

My interest in bitcoin started with my hatred of PayPal. The straw that broke the camel’s back was their blocking of all wikileaks accounts. I knew at that moment that a payment alternative, one that did not allow central authorities to make decisions regarding what people could and could not do with their own money, was sorely needed.

I started SpendBitcoins when I realised that although bitcoin was the perfect solution to the problem, there were very few merchants (no large ones) that accepted bitcoin. I signed up as an affiliate of Amazon and started selling amazon gift codes for bitcoins.

We’ve built a company with exceptional people who are passionate about bitcoin. Our goal is to provide you with all of the tools you will ever need to use bitcoins every day.

Our mission is simple: Make bitcoin easier

Today, over 100,000 merchants accept bitcoin, and we aim to list every one here, as well as all their products. We want to make it easy to find places to spend your bitcoins on anything you want, anywhere in the world, all in one place.

At our home-away-from-home in the Spend Bitcoin offices, we start our day by adding a teaspoon of bitcoin to our morning coffee while munching on a bowl of bitcoin bran. We live and breathe bitcoin and we are committed to bringing bitcoin to your daily life as well, by making bitcoin as easy and comfortable as slipping into a pair of old jeans.

Spending bitcoin should be fast, simple, clear, efficient, and global. Our aim is to allow anyone, anywhere, anytime to be able to use bitcoins as easily as using cash. Even easier, because unlike cash you don’t have to scrounge around under the couch for loose change, just pop on your computer or smartphone and away you go.

We are working every day to innovate and expand bitcoin, to create the infrastructure required to keep it going now and well into the future. We look forward to a long and happy relationship working with you and all your bitcoin needs.

Happy Spending!
