In what seems like a relatively short stretch, bitcoin has gone from shady cryptocurrency to legal tender, at least in some parts of the world. Support from a couple of big brands has certainly helped its credibility, and after Dell introduced the option to pay with bitcoin in the US last July, the company has now made it available to customers in Canada and the UK, too. According to Dell, everything from software and peripherals to business computers and even a $50,000 server system have been purchased in the US using bitcoin. Thus, it was only sensible to expand its agreement with Coinbase, the well-known exchange that actually processes the transactions, and make the checkout option available further afield. So, the next time you need a new laptop and have a couple of bitcoins lying around in your virtual wallet, you know where to spend them.
