In spite of the dramatic ups and downs that cryptocurrencies have suffered in recent months, many people still see them as the future of the economy, and there are more and more commerces joining this financial revolution, accepting them among their payment methods, especially the most famous cryptocurrency on the market, Bitcoin.
An example of the increasing acceptability that the most popular digital currency has had among businesses is the tourism industry, which has always sought to be at the forefront of finance and technology, and is one of the most prolific sectors in the world.
This sector was a pioneer in accepting payments with cryptocurrencies, along with the food industry, and this is why multiple financial organizations look for tourism companies to support their projects as investors.
In a previous article we talked about the travel agencies and tourist sites that have joined the world of cryptoeconomy and accept Bitcoin as payment for their services; in this opportunity we will let you know about the first airport in favor of the use of cryptocurrencies.
We are talking about the Brisbane international airport, which is the third busiest airport in Australian, where all merchants and terminals accept multiple digital assets, such as Bitcoin Core, Dash, Ethereum and Steem, thus becoming the first international airport completely "crypto-friendly".
This was possible because of the agreement between the Brisbane Airport Corporations (BAC) and the Australian payment processing provider Travelbybit, whose company shows its transactions live on its website.
For the Brisbane Airport Corporation, it is very important to give their passengers the option to use cryptocurrencies _ with the help of Travelbybit _ which makes it easier for their retailers to stay relevant and push back against the threat of online purchases, making trading much more efficient and transparent through the use of the Blockchain technology.
This is another proof of the increasing acceptability and usability of this new system, which as time goes by will continue to extend its reach.
