The growing number of internet retailers adopting cryptocurrency signals a rapidly changing global trade landscape, with BTC transactions offering significant benefits for both companies and users. According to HSB, about one-third of small and medium businesses in the US are willing to use BTC as a form of payment. Any central authority does not control Bitcoin, and the way it works makes it harder for prices to go up and for people with power to interfere with it. Moreover, BTC payments are less expensive because they do not require mediation, which helps people and companies save money by reducing payment processing charges.

Benefits of BTC payments

Cryptocurrencies are faster than other ways of payment, so they are great for buying things quickly. Bitcoin transactions take around 30–60 minutes on average to confirm, which means that merchants can send out their products right away.

While Bitcoin offers greater anonymity than FIAT payments, users should be aware that merchants can view the funds’ wallet addresses and trace them back to the wallet owner. 

BTC can be used by people all around the world, even if they don’t have a bank account. This helps businesses reach new customers who haven’t been reached before, including those from developing countries.
