Gemini get $10 free in bitcoin when you buy or sell $100 worth of Bitcoin - Now accepting UK Bank deposits

Gemini is a well-known regulated cryptocurrency exchange from the US. They are looking to expand to the UK and have recently started accepting deposits from UK banks and debit cards.
Being able to deposit funds from your UK based bank account to Gemini makes this offer a lot easier to access this offer than it was previously.
Currently Gemini are offering a $10 referral bonus in bitcoin after you have bought or sold $100 (about £80) in Bitcoin or another crypto.
Gemini also offer free sending of Bitcoin. So there are no fees to pay if you send to another Bitcoin address.
Here is how to get your free $10 of Bitcoin.
Steps:
Sign up through my referral link:
Referral link: https://gemini.com/share/ae9qdgfd
$10 bonus
Non-referral link: https://gemini.com/refer-a-friend
No bonus
Verify your identity and address (normal need passport or driving licence)
Do one of the following:
Deposit funds from your bank account into Gemini (choose GBP as deposit currency and then set up bank details and then select Manually Link Bank Account, you then will need to send a payment using the reference code provided),
Alternatively you can deposit $100 of Bitcoin (about 0.01BTC) or another crypto to your Gemini account.
Buy or sell least $100 in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency (I would recommend buying £85 worth, or selling at least 0.01 BTC worth to be sure to meet bonus threshold).
The $10 in Bitcoin will be credited to your account within 1-2 days. You can then send it somewhere else or change back to £'s and transfer to your bank.
Full conditions here: https://support.gemini.com/hc/en-us/articles/360032480112-Does-Gemini-have-a-Referral-Credit-Program-
Let me know if you have any questions :)

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

Maybe you're here because you've received a tip on social media, or maybe you've just been hearing a lot recently about Bitcoin and are wondering what the big deal is? The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little bit about its long term potential:
For lots of additional video resources check out the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV . Peer-reviewed, research papers can be found here.

Where can I buy bitcoins?

You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (from as little as $1 worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank account. A good list of exchanges sorted by region can be found on the exchanges wiki here.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Here are a couple useful sites [bitkoin.io, preev.com] that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Can I mine bitcoin?

Mining bitcoins can be a fun learning experience, but be aware that you will most likely operate at a loss. Newcomers are often advised to stay away from mining unless they are only interested in it as a hobby similar to folding at home. If you want to learn more about mining you can read more here. Still have mining questions? The friendly folks at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out.
If you want to contribute to the bitcoin network by hosting the blockchain and propagating transactions you can run a full node using this setup guide. You can view the global node distribution here.

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use established companies such as Coinbase and Circle which have secured wallets where they hold the bitcoins for you and provide insurance.
If you prefer to "be your own bank" and have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party, there are many options in the wallets wiki. If you would prefer easy and secure storage without having to learn computer security best practices then a hardware wallet such as the Trezor, Ledger or HW-1 is recommended.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access.

Be sure to only deal with reputable companies, if you have any concerns about a company's trustworthiness just ask or check their consumer reviews and ratings.
If you prefer to have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party you can use personal wallets for desktops / laptops, Android and iOS where you alone hold your private keys. Electrum, Mycelium and Breadwallet are popular, but there are many options.
Find a wallet that works best for you

Google Authenticator and Authy are two great apps for handling 2FA.
Additional security systems such as Mycelium Entropy (for printing multi-signature paper wallets) and the Trezor Hardware Wallet are great ways to easily secure your coins. Or, you can opt to secure your bitcoin using cold storage.

Vendors this is how to not do customer service: ukecigstore

I asked ukecigstore about expanding their payment options as the only one I personally use online is missing... in my perception their service really went all out on this email chain. :
Hi,
I'd like to order some hardware from you, but asfar as I can tell your payment options do not suite me. I would prefer to use bitcoin, I know there is a service provider that can handle them for you for a 1% fee where you get pounds in your account the next day and also that they have a plugin for your platform: prestashop. I can reccomend their service highly as I use it myself on my own non-vaping related ecommerce which also run on prestashop. Setup can take as little as 30 minutes. Please consider taking my money and please reply.

HELP: Setting up A UK business accepting Bitcoin payments

I am looking to set up a Web based business which will accept BTC payments and could do with some help from the community as where to start. My background in the space to date is investing in the value proposition of Bitcoin rather than from a commercial POV.
The business will sell various web based services and one of the options for payment will be Bitcoin.
I am confident that the business will generate revenue from day 1 but being a UK business i will need to have a UK bank account that will accept payments from some sort of BTC -> fiat source. Obviously in the future ideally there will be no requirement to go back to fiat but realistically there are going to be things that need paying and i will need to pay out dividends.
So the main couple of questions are:
- Is there a known out of the box solution to this problem
- Do i use an exchange to go back into fiat and if so can i have a business account
- What Banks in the UK are generally accepting towards cryptopayments
Appreciate any help!

A 150-year-old English church is being sold for $1.5 million with the vendor accepting payment in Bitcoin (BTC).
Vendor is willing to receive payment in Bitcoin
According to a listing on Rightmove, a major British online real estate portal and property website, a vendor put an 18th-century church converted into a seven-bedroom character property up for sale and is willing to accept Bitcoin as payment.
While the property unit is priced at 1.2 million British pounds ($1.5 million), the final price in Bitcoin is to be agreed and confirmed with the vendor and will depend on the market price of Bitcoin at the time of sale, the listing notes. At press time, the sale price is worth 182.34 Bitcoins.
Built in 1871, the converted residential property is the former St. Laurence’s Church in County Durham.
Earlier this year, Cointelegraph reported that major Bitcoin-oriented real estate project Aston Plaza was pausing its operations, while previous reports claimed that the construction of the $325 million venture was stopped in January 2018. According to the Aston Plaza website, the venture still offers studios as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments that can be bought with Bitcoin.
U.K. and payments in crypto
The U.K. has been friendly to crypto-powered payments, according to recent reports. Last week, major local crypto wallet and debit card service firm Cryptopay announced the launch of transfers with the British pound through the Faster Payments Scheme, which purportedly eliminated euro conversion charges.
In April 2019, the U.K.’s largest travel management company, Corporate Traveller, announced that it started accepting Bitcoin for payments, noting that the firm is not concerned with Bitcoin’s price volatility, as received crypto is converted directly into British pounds.
