I have made a few dollars in BitcoinSV since I started paying to post on blockchain-based apps like Twetch. I have been investigating whether paying to post will shape the future of the social internet. But where can you spend your hard earned Bitcoin?
With a lot of help from Twitter users @Street5Wall, $DiegoSV, and @BsvDevs I have found a few places from the hundreds of online and phisical stores around the world where I can spend my virtual crypto currency and turn it into tangible goods. Here is a selection of vendors around the world where you can spend your crypto currency.

Las Vegas, NV-based Shiny Leaf produces skin and hair care products and a range of bath and body products – BitcoinSV is accepted amongst its other payment options.
