SatsSpend - Australian Bitcoin Business List


SatsSpend is a list of Australian businesses that accept bitcoin.

Our aim is to encourage a circular economy in which Aussie bitcoiners can more easily spend their sats (and so bitcoin businesses get the support they deserve).

This list is not intended for bitcoin exchanges or third-party payment processors (e.g., to get paid in bitcoin or pay bills in bitcoin). There are already numerous lists of such intermediate businesses.

To add an Australian business, contact me on Twitter (@mission_bitcoin) or submit a pull request on the SatsSpend Github page.

Tax Guidance

To spend bitcoin in Australia without incurring Capital Gains Tax, you would ideally buy and spend your sats in line with the ATO's personal use asset guidance.

For more comprehensive information on the ATO's tax treatment of spending bitcoin, see the ATO guide titled Transactions - acquiring and disposing of crypto assets.
