TIFU by authorizing an employee to make a $100 purchase with Bitcoin

UPDATE POSTED!
So this entire process started this January and was brought to light this last Friday in a leadership team meeting. I own a tech company with a medium sized team (a little over 30 employees). One of our employees on the marketing team needed authorization to make a $100 purchase of bitcoin with the company debit card for some sort of email service which was offered by someone in a different country. I didn't really know what it was for, but $100 to make an employees job easier is typically always worth it.
This was our first bitcoin purchase as a company so the employee used one of the major bitcoin exchanges to make the purchase. This was also done through their company email address (so we think... we'll come back to this).
The purchase did end up taking place. The bitcoin was purchased from the exchange and successfully transferred to the other party's wallet. This should be the end of the story, right? WRONG!!!
This Friday, our CFO brings up in our meeting that we have been charged $100 every week for the last 8 months from the exchange we made the initial bitcoin purchase from. He assumed it was a recurring payment for the service we initially purchased, but we all confirmed that this should have been a one time purchase of $100. Time to call the employee in a get to the bottom of this, right? WRONG!!!
Here's where it gets tricky... That employee is in Austria to visit family and was out last week (returns this week thankfully). We have an idea of what email he used, but are struggling to get in contact with him to resolve this. Who knows, he may have used a personal email... If we don't have contact by tomorrow, we're planning an administrative password reset to access his company email account, but haven't taken those measures yet... His last email was that they don't have a charger for his Mac and he forgot his on the trip... Already an internal issue we're dealing with, but we can leave that out for now.
Our assumption is that this employee "mistakenly" turned an auto purchase on to buy $100 of bitcoin every week. These aren't huge purchases, and again, our CFO just assumed it was for a recurring service so it was pretty much ignored on our books.
Luckily, there is a potential silver lining in all of this. I believe we've purchased a little over $3000 of bitcoin this year and the price has almost tripled since we started buying! Assuming we can get into the account and cash in, this may be the best "mistake" one of our employees has ever made! There's also the off chance that he's funneling bitcoin to his own personal wallet which we might not even know exists, but I don't think this will be the case. Regardless of the result, we're about to find out this week. Either we're going to cash in, someone is getting fired, or we just had $3k+ disappear into the block chain.
TL:DR An employee made a $100 bitcoin purchase and accidentally turned a weekly $100 auto purchase on. The employee is on vacation so we still can't confirm if we have access to the bitcoin since we have basically no communication with him. We'll find out if we made a bunch of money, if he's funneling to himself, or if it has disappeared this week.

How would real-world purchases with Bitcoin work if the price of Bitcoin varies every minute?

Because we still use dollar bills, euros, yen, ("fiat currency") whatever... it doesn't seem to make sense to me to make a purchase with Bitcoin for any reason because the value of a Bitcoin changes in the time it takes to make a convert a purchase from Bitcoin to dollars.
If I was on the receiving end of a large (millions of dollars) purchase, a 0.1% change in the value of Bitcoin is worth $1000, so I could very easily see the volatility of Bitcoin wiping out the benefits of the extremely low transaction fees.
Is my understanding correct?

Purchasing with bitcoin

I have been searching Facebook marketplace and Craigslist for items for sale where they accept bitcoin and there just isn't that many people. I wonder why that is. I would love to buy a newer car or even a newish laptop via bitcoin but very few people even know what it is still even after 10+years of it being released.

TIFU (UPDATE) by authorizing an employee to make a $100 purchase with Bitcoin

Before I get into an update, please take a second to read the original TIFU where I authorized an employee to make a $100 purchase with Bitcoin. I've been traveling over the last few days and mid-week was tough for me to put this update together. Again, please read the original as this story will be SO MUCH BETTER with it! I promise you won't regret it and the update doesn't disappoint.
ORIGINAL LINK HERE!
Ok, as you may know from my original post, an employee made a bitcoin purchase of $100 in January and it seemed like a weekly auto purchase was being made to buy $100 of bitcoin each week. This employee went on a vacation to Austria a few days before we learned of the issue and due to communication challenges, we decided we would wait until he was back to figure it all out. He did in fact return from his vacation, as expected, and was totally unaware of the weekly purchase that was set up on the account...at least that's what he says.
Before we get into the craziness, I do want to preface and say, we were able to recover the bitcoin account and our earnings were almost double of what was spent! Big sigh of relief. Overall, it was a nice little financial investment without even realizing it took place. I feel like the story should have ended there and we could have all been satisfied with that ending. It could be over, but I'm just feeling so uneasy about walking away from the scenario I'm about to lay out:
So even though the original purchase was made for the company and with the company card, this bitcoin wallet account was set up under this individual's personal name and personal email. He didn't even use a company email?! He had some reasoning as to why it was done this way, but it's all fishy to me. He also didn't have any issue when we said we would be cashing the bitcoin in and transferring the money to the company account. He said he "wouldn't expect it any other way" and swears it was an honest mistake. I'm still wondering if he is just trying to save face since we pay him well, but we'll see...
The mistake was just at such a small scale compared to what he earns monthly, so I really do want to believe there wasn't any malicious intent involved. Maybe I'm looking into it too much, but there is one big red flag that I'm struggling to get past...
On the wallet account, we are able to view sign-in activity. The account was created and the purchase took place in beginning of January and then no sign of activity for about 6 months. At the end of June, there was a single sign in to the account and I just can't imagine anyone else had access to the account! He swears it was a glitch in the system or something else, but as an owner in a technology firm, it's just hard for me to get past what seems to be a straight up lie. It also looks like this is where Bitcoin was at its peak price which just makes me feel uneasy about all of this.
My heart in this entire situation says that no damage was done and since we were able to benefit, it should just be a no harm no foul type of situation. The other side of me is running every scenario where this employee may gain access to sensitive company again and do something else that catches us of guard. I just don't know.
I know this kind of leaves it at a cliffhanger and I was hoping to have a better clear cut ending, but as of today, this is the best I've got for you. I had a few messages for the update so I wanted to sit down and really lay it out in detail for you guys. Depending on the response to this one and the opinions of the community, I may need to do a final update in a week or so... Who knows honestly.
TL:DR An employee made a $100 bitcoin purchase and accidentally turned a weekly $100 auto purchase on. We were able to recover the money, but there are so many red flags for me to believe this was just an "honest" mistake. No idea what I'm going to do next.

(Xpost r/TIFU) TIFU by authorizing an employee to make a $100 purchase with Bitcoin

i just made my first in-person purchase with Bitcoin Cash.

I just bought a lawnmower on Craigslist with BCH. In the 4 years since I got into crypto and the countless purchases made on purse or other bitcoin enabled sites, I finally found someone selling something in-person and willing to take crypto, and the guy was open to BCH.
We chatted a bit about crypto (gotta embrace a fellow enthusiast), but we didn't discuss the political side of BTC/BCH, even though his ad only mentioned bitcoin and Ethereum.
I offered Ethereum or Bitcoin cash (just to check, as I don't hold any BTC), and he said he'd prefer BCH, even though he doesn't have any currently.
I hope this trend continues (folks selling things for BCH and Crypto in general).
Also, a key takeaway is: not all bitcoin supporters/holders are BTC purity zealots.

This regret of past purchases with Bitcoin is stupid

No one is regretting that they've bought Pentium 133 pc back in '95 for 1000 dollars when now they can get orders of magnitude faster hardware for the same price right now (and they can get 133 for free probably). This is what was available at the time of purchase.
With Bitcoin it's the same story. Who cares that for one Bitcoin you couldn't buy even a pack of gum and now it gets you 500 pizzas.
