I think we can now buy stuff on Overstock using Steem

Overstock was one of the first online retailers to enable payment by Bitcoin.

They've now announced a partnership with Shapeshift, allowing users to pay using altcoins via Shapeshift's API:

Here is Shapeshift's announcement:

And here is Fortune saying you should be able to pay with about 40 alts:

As Steem is on the Shapeshift API, I presume we should be able to use the new service to buy stuff on Overstock with Steem.

Very interesting... I've heard of shapeshift but haven't actually looked at it. However, I'd have to think that it would be a great boost to cryptos overall to be part of a network that can be used for daily commercial transactions... a big step towards "mainstreaming."
