Find Places To Use Bitcoin on CoinMap

Find Places To Use Bitcoin on CoinMap

Back in April, user Stick on BitcoinTalk posted an announcement about a new website launched called CoinMap.

It’s a map showing places where Bitcoin is accepted. All you have to do is to add payment:bitcoin=yes tag to your venue in OpenStreetMap.

The directory is updated through a form of crowd-sourcing, not relying on any centralized method for data, much like bitcoin itself. In a reddit thread mentioning the website, the creator noted that at launch the site indexed approximately 200 businesses using bitcoin on CoinMap. Just last month, CoinMap had around 400 businesses listed, and now, the map showcases over 900 different locations that people the world over may spend their bitcoins.

Interactivity and clear, concise graphics make finding locations that accept bitcoin on CoinMap even easier than locating your favorite store from the directory at the mall.

Due to the peer sourced nature of information in the directory used to find bitcoin on CoinMap, sharing the url and adding any relevant information yourself will prove extremely valuable to bitcoiners everywhere. Find a business that accepts bitcoin but don’t see it listed on CoinMap? Add it! Or, if you feel like contributing even more to the project, you can check out the source for the site here on GitHub.
