Rob Wile over at Business Insider published a great post on Monday evening with some data that’s come from Overstock.com from purchases last Thursday. That was, of course, the day in which the online retailer began accepting bitcoin payments — six months ahead of the originally-projected timeframe.
The company managed to sell $130,000 worth of items for the digital currency that day, and Wile reports that sheets, cell phone cases, USB memory sticks, and bath towels were the most popular items amongst shoppers looking to spend their bitcoin.
The states with the most bitcoin buys on Overstock per capita were: New Hampshire, Utah, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. By the numbers, the states with the highest amount of orders were: California, Texas, and Florida, with 228, 105, and 87 orders, respectively.
You can see this visualized on a map on Business Insider. We just thought it was an interesting share.
