Over the last year, more companies are gradually accepting Bitcoin (BTC) as a form of payment. Some places consider the asset a legal tender and even thought to be "digital gold." Over time, Bitcoin has been growing in popularity amongst investors and has also been expanding in global adoption.
In recent news about adopting Bitcoin investments, a start-up company centered around digital parking allows users to pay for parking sessions with Bitcoin and six other cryptos. A digital parking app called Seety allows its users to exchange crypto for parking in Antwerp and Brussels in Belgium. The app is also available in France, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. The six other cryptocurrencies customers can use include Ethereum (ETH) and Dogecoin (DOGE).
Currently, Seety has over 350,000 active users with a high predicted turnover of 400,000 Euros this year. The app allows roughly 85,000 Swiss merchants to accept crypto as payment through its services.
In another example of cryptocurrency adoption, an e-commerce platform SHOP.com has integrated BitPay into its systems to spread the acceptance of Bitcoin to its consumers. The BitPay collaboration also allows SHOP.com to provide access to pay with Bitcoin, Bitcoin cash (BCH), Ethereum, Dogecoin, Litecoin (LTC), and more.
Even the world-leading movie theatre chain AMC Entertainment has made plans to allow Bitcoin payments which will be implemented before the end of 2021. Adam Aron, the CEO of AMC Entertainment, released a statement that they will begin accepting various payment methods, including Apple pay, Google pay, and Bitcoin.
