Use those virtual coins you earned with hardware to, well, buy more hardware

At the rate things are going, even Russian brides and flux capacitors will rank among the things you can buy with Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency that's had its ups and downs in the media. In the meantime, there are plenty of other things you can buy with the popular virtual currency. You could even build your system with parts bought with Bitcoin currency now that Newegg is accepting it .

Newegg has teamed with BitPay to accept Bitcoin payments on its website, which is home to more than 25 million registered customers nad over 10.5 million products running the gamut from electronics to household items.

"Newegg’s customers are among some of the earliest Bitcoin miners and are enthusiastic proponents of the cryptocurrency. Adopting Bitcoin as a payment method is another way we’re responding to our customers’ diverse needs," said Soren Mills , Chief Marketing Officer for Newegg North America. "Working with BitPay to implement a Bitcoin payment option at Newegg was a seamless process and our partnership gives us the capabilities we require for high-volume e-commerce."

The next time you shop at Newegg, you'll notice the Bitcoin option among the payment methods. If you already have digital wallet software installed, you can complete order by simply clicking the "Pay with Bitcoin" button.
