Buying Gear With Crypto?

Does anyone know of any major brand.....Canon....Nikon.....etc, that accepts crypto as payment? I haven't heard any news on this and it's kind of surprising.

You're right. Using cryptocurrencies for camera equipment hasn't crossed my mind until now. However, I think that there are still many companies that don't accept it. Even some countries consider it illegal.

Wait, do you want to use digital currency to buy your equipment? It just sounds like an unnecessary hassle. Credit cards sometimes offer extended warranties and other protections, so what's the appeal here? I must be missing something.

I tell you, if someone wanted to sell me a selection of cameras in exchange for crypto coins, I'd be afraid the cameras were stolen and the seller didn't want to be traced.

Digital cameras and digital currency. There is that connection.

Trade publications have been suspiciously silent on this, unless I'm missing something.

Give it time though and I'm sure we'll hear more about it.

Sure, but the OP is talking about major brands accepting crypto, not some random guy who is selling online. I would be hesitant to buy from an unproven randomer myself, no matter the currency.

Digital currency isn't going anywhere. Our industry might move a little slowly, but it's only a matter of time before the industry adapts to its use.

I have never gotten into crypto and, to be honest, I don't really know much about it. I guess it's just a matter of time until everyone starts using it; including the companies you mentioned.

From what I understand, company towns are becoming a thing again for the larger corporations like Amazon. I could see Crypto being the only currency they use, from paying employees, to buying groceries, to buying photography gear.

Cryptocurrencies have been existing for years now, but they have only gained much popularity recently. I'm not sure, though, if more industries will be willing to process it since it's not exactly sustainable.

Whenever I hear crypto, I think about hackers for some reason. I have never gotten into Bitcoin or any other, and I am not sure I understand the whole concept to be honest.
