It seems that the crypto market is in the middle of an explosion with Bakkt revealing crucial updates and more.
Now, it also looks like we’re heading towards mainstream, adoption for sure, just how the crypto experts have been predicting all year.
The bulls are back, and crypto adoption is also flourishing.
Massive retailers start accepting Bitcoin
A new initiative was announced today, according to Fortune. Big name retailers including Amazon-owned Whole Foods are now accepting Bitcoin and other digital assets.
“The retail initiative comes via a partnership between Flexa, a payments startup, and Gemini, the Winklevoss-owned digital currency company. It works by piggy-backing on the digital scanners that many big retailers use to accept phone-based payments from their apps and from digital wallets like Apple Pay,” Fortune’s Jeff John Roberts writes.
The author also posted on Twitter the massive adoption-related news and confirms it after trying out the new feature during the past weekend.
He said that even if retailers have been low key on the matter, he tried it and it worked. You can check out his tweet below.
