Cryptocurrency has been in existence since 2009. As of 2021, over 20% of Americans now own it, and this percentage is growing by the day. It is estimated that 90% of Americans will own crypto by 2028. Likewise, many businesses including Starbucks, Nordstrom, and Subway currently accept cryptocurrency, and this number is growing as well. These businesses enjoy the following benefits:
Increased international reach
Lower processing fees
No chargeback fees
Learn about this growing trend and what it will take for your business to accept crypto as payment. We will discuss the pros and cons and what steps you will need to take to offer this form of payment to your customers.
