In addition to its typical investment values, such as high price volatility or low inflation, Bitcoin has the features of a means of payment. Actually, BTC was created after the 2008 crisis, mainly to be an alternative sovereign payment free from inflation
Paying with Bitcoin - who allows it?
It is true that the adaptation of both Bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies is much calmer than sudden price increases and is not as media-related, but it is still ongoing and from year to year more and more places accept Bitcoin payments. It is very positive that large brands are joining in, either testing cryptocurrency payments via fintech startups or implementing them themselves. This creates a fight and competition for cryptocurrency adoptions among corporations, which further drives the overall adaptation of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. At the moment, you can pay with Bitcoin in such well-known brands as Wikipedia, Dell or Microsoft. This has driven more companies to introduce such opportunities.
Bitcoin payments on the market
An example is the Purse.io overlay on Amazon's website, which allows you to exchange goods via cryptocurrencies. Also, companies from the food industry are closely monitoring the market and introducing payment options with BTC. Among others, in Burger King or KFC you can pay with cryptocurrencies. It is true that this option is available only for online payments and orders, but nevertheless it is an important step in the adaptation of Bitcoin. In Poland, when ordering through the Pyszne.pl portal, it is also possible to pay with cryptocurrencies, which gives us many more possibilities. In addition to tasty.pl in Poland, you can buy food using Bitcoin at Bobby Burger. These are obviously not the only places, there are also many smaller places that accept cryptocurrency payments.
In addition to the food industry, we can also pay for specialist medical services via Bitcoin. Among others, Medicover decided to accept BTC payments. Considering the service sector, there are also many dance schools or language schools that accept critical currency payments. Mobile telephony has also agreed to BTC, both the well-known brand of Richard Brandson Virgin, as well as T-mobile and Heyah allow you to top up your phone using Bitcoin.
