Some of you may know PointsHound offers rewarding points for online hotel booking. It's easy and free to register an account online at PointsHound, search and book hotels on their sites, and the rewarding points will go into your PointsHound account.
Bitcoin, an online currency gaining popularity, is now an option on PointsHound. It means that you can designate Bitcoin as your cashback every time you book a hotel through PointsHound. What is Bitcoin anyway? Well, in a nutshell, it's considered cash. Maybe I'm over simplifying Bitcoin as cash. But to me who use Bitcoin, it means cash.
Bitcoin is a new digital currency when transferred between parties there'll be very little or no transaction fee involved. Unlike transfer money using 'traditional' PayPal, more than 2% of transaction is typical. With Bitcoin, wallet to wallet transfer money (Bitcoin) is fast and easy as if sending an email to another person.
The following real example shows if I book this hotel for $219 for one night, I'll get 0.0138 BTC back to my own Bitcoin wallet. The current exchange rate is about $835 per BTC, making the cashback around $11.5.
