Bitcoin flea market: Buy second-hand goods using digital currency

Paralelní Polis is hosting another flea market this Sunday (05.03.17) between 1-6pm.

Paralelní Polis is hosting another flea market this Sunday (05.03.17) between 1-6pm. It is a unique event that will offer visitors the chance to pick up some second hand treasures entirely using bitcoins.

It is a great opportunity to buy, change, donate or sell second hand items. All manner of second hand items are welcome such as clothes, books, music, components for 3D printing and everything in between.

You will be able to familiarize yourself with digital currency as assistance is on hand to show you how it works. You will be shown how to get bitcoins on site, how to accept payments from buyers and how you can sell them afterwards. Also on offer is the delicate Nordbeans coffee while special refreshments will be available from the Bitcoin Coffee shop.

"For visitors and vendors who come to Parallel Polis for the first time, we will be ready to assist them with obtaining bitcoin," says the upcoming flea market organizer Iva Köhler.

"We want to combine the concept of a flea market, visitors who are already familiar with the unique experience, physical sales and making purchases with Bitcoin. You can enjoy good coffee, cake and integrate yourself into an increasing bitcoin community.”

“We enjoy testing bitcoin economics. We know how to get a coffee, a cake, a 3D course or a membership in bitcoins. But what about getting new clothes, books, vinyls, computer components or other stuff in bitcoins?” she added.

The popularity of digital currencies is growing every day. This upcoming flea market corresponds with the philosophy of cryptocurrency that Paralelní Polis promotes. Peer-to-peer or the direct exchange of goods is a transaction that is often expensive and inefficient, using third party intermediaries such as banks or e-commerce. Therefore Iva Köhler wants flea markets organized every three months, to trade cryptocurrency and inspire more people to get on board. This year's flea market in Paralelní Polis will feature 43 different vendors. If you want to be one of them, just before the event register and pay 100 CZK for a place to sell your goods.

For visitors the entrance is FREE – You just need to bring bitcoins or paper money so you can exchange and bring your smartphone so you can create a bitcoin wallet.
