Deloitte - Bitcoin and 3200%
Deloitte, the world's largest accounting firm, conducted a survey from December 3-16, 2021.
What is the goal?
To find out how likely retail merchant shops are to accept bitcoin for payment of cosmetics, electronics, food and beverage, fashion, transportation.
One of their more interesting findings was that retailers believed consumer interest in paying with bitcoin had increased, 3200% in a year, so they expected their suppliers to accept bitcoin as payment as well.
30% of the 2,000 participating merchants had already integrated bitcoin payments into their sales systems.
And 39% planned to complete their setups within the next 12 months. Eight months later, the price of bitcoin is still relatively low.
Hodlers, on the other hand, will not be shaken. Innovations like the Lightning Network, which reduce costs while enabling a synergy of collaborations, are paving the way.
Bitcoiners will be pumped up by events like the Bitcoin Zitadelle conference, which will keep them on the right track in terms of monetary righteousness.
Microsoft, Whole Foods, and Gyft, among others, accept bitcoin as payment, as do approximately 15,000 other businesses worldwide. And, while you cannot pay with bitcoin on Amazon, you can buy bitcoin gift cards at Bitrefill and redeem them on the world's largest online retailer websites.
