It is well known that recently companies began to add Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as the payment method for their products and services. One of the downsides of using Bitcoin is allegedly the environmental issues it has. Many analysts say the proof of work consensus mechanism consumes way more energy than the other ways of transacting. However, Bitcoin proponents deny this and highlight that it does not consume as much energy as the current financial system use, and it is faster and safer.
Previously, Adam mentioned that they would accept Bitcoin as the payment method in August 2021. He also covered that the new shareholders are quite enthusiastic about cryptocurrencies. With the recent news, he approved this decision.
Nowadays, Bitcoin is available to buy almost anywhere. Anyone can buy bitcoin in Dubai, Istanbul, or anywhere else to purchase the services and products.
