At Drillbrush, we love nothing more than innovation and trying new things. This adaptive spirit is what allows us to produce high quality products and stay ahead of the curve in the cleaning world.
For these reasons, we are happy to announce that our website has been updated to allow you to use Bitcoin to purchase Drillbrush products through your Bitcoin wallet.
For the crypto-savvy, you’ll know what this means and what to do. Just head on over to our website and start shopping. But if you’re a fledgeling coin-carrier or have no idea what anything in that previous paragraph meant, we’ll walk you through just what Bitcoin is and how you can use it to purchase our products!
What is Bitcoin?
More and more people ask this question everyday, especially with the word popping up in the news and on social media. Bitcoin is a popular form of cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies, or crypto, are digital decentralized currencies alternative to centralized currency systems like the dollar.
Simply put, it’s like digital gold. Just as older currencies were backed by valuable resources, like precious metals, cryptocurrencies gain their value from computers solving computational problems, or “mining.”
A successful mining computation unlocks a “block,” which nets the miner a unit of currency. Each block is unique, so the same answer can’t generate a new coin, so the computer has to keep solving problems until it finds a unique one.
This scarcity is what backs the currency, giving it its value, which can fluctuate depending on the amount of coin out there, much like a gold reserve.
As an all-digital currency, Bitcoin is easily transferable and verified by secure networks. Many see the use of cryptocurrencies as the future for purchasing goods and commodities in an ever-changing digital world.

Bit for Brush
