M.A.N. might just save you this Christmas

Thursday 26 November 2015

Bitscan’s Mall is gearing up. Here’s one of my favourite stores.

At Bitscan we’re absolutely convinced that bitcoin has the potential to revolutionise e-commerce. It’s not just a niche currency, a speculators’ toy or a geek’s plaything: we want to see it used as a transactional currency because it holds such amazing benefits for both merchants and customers.

That’s why Bitscan has created the Marketplace: a collection of stores where you can shop with your credit card or digital cash (in which case you’ll get a 5% discount, reflecting the efficiencies of virtual money).

It’s well worth a browse, but I wanted to highlight one of my favourites: M.A.N. Mission statement: to ‘curate the finest products for the gentleman, who has earned the right to live on his own terms.’


M.A.N. The ideal place to buy shiny things with crypto

For the discerning gentleman

Make no mistake, this is a high-class store for the discerning gentleman. What I like about M.A.N. is that is has a range of products suitable for today’s self-respecting modern male, but doesn’t go down the route of kitsch or cheap humour. (I’m not universally against kitsch or cheap humour, I’m just trying to give you a sense of the vibe the store projects here.)

So you’ll find all the kit a man-about-town would want. Like hip flasks, cufflinks, cigar cases, watches, grooming accessories, tools and gadgets; indoor barbecues, knife sets, high-speed juicer and stainless steel coffee cups; satchels and back packs; and, for the gentleman at leisure, console games, light sabers and quad copters.

It’s an equally good place to go for yourself, if you’ve got some virtual currency burning a hole in your pocket, or if you need to shop for someone else who is difficult to find presents for. You know, like when there’s a major holiday coming and they’re expecting you to give them something...
