A Yearlong Trip around the World Using Only Bitcoin (Reuters Blogs)
Since January, the 28-year-old freelance computer programmer from Luxembourg has been on a trip around the world using only bitcoin.
“Bitcoin is the most exciting global socioeconomic experiment right now,” Weis said.
“I really believe in it.”
As proof of his devotion to the six-year-old currency, Weis converted all his money into bitcoin and cut up his credit card.
To use bitcoin, you need to first download a bitcoin wallet app to your smartphone.
Said Weis: “Now that I know it’s possible to live off bitcoin in 14 countries, why go back to the boring old system?”
