Cryptocurrencies are becoming increasingly popular and stronger, and the best evidence is the growing number of people that not only is aware but actively involved in this new economic and financial trend that is revolutionizing money’s history.
They are no longer perceived just as a digital asset for profits in a speculative market, interesting only for traders and investors; they are also looking for commercial partnerships to start using them for the purpose they were created.
The nature of any currency is to be used by people in exchange for goods or services, but in this case, benefiting from the huge advantages of the Blockchain technology used to create and support them.
That’s why the number of businesses – both physical and online – that are adopting cryptocurrencies as a payment option, is growing steadily.
That is the case for Bitcoin, the most renowned cryptocurrency and currently at the top of the global digital asset ranking. Bitcoin is the most valued and the most accepted digital currency, not only online but in physical businesses and cashiers around the world.
And if you are part of this new ecosystem, it is important to know where you can use your crypto-assets.
Coinmap was created so you don’t have to go door by door, store by store, asking if they accept Bitcoin. This is a world map that shows all the businesses where we can make our payments with the cryptocurrency.
This tool provides a view of the worldwide adoption of Bitcoin and shows, specifically, all the places that accept it and how far they are from our current location.
Because of the difficulty of having a centralized and official record of all the businesses and cashiers that allow Bitcoin operations, Coinmap has proved handy among crypto-users that are able to check the different stores and/or businesses all over the world.
All you have to do is go to https://coinmap.org/welcome/ and search the name of any given business.
In order to improve the tool, you can also add the name of a business that isn’t listed or edit any wrong information. You can even rate the existing places.
Let’s hope more people discover and use this tool, adding their own businesses to the growing list of establishments that accept Bitcoin payments, providing more options to all the users of this new commercial system.
