Bottom line

Cryptocurrencies are getting wider acceptance as a legit mode of payment despite high fluctuations in their value, recent cases of money heist in the form of cryptos and governments trying to curb and regulate the space.

According to a report by CoinTelegraph, 93% people in a survey said yes when asked if they would consider making a purchase using cryptos in the future. The companies are gradually recognising the clear trend of acceptance of cryptos and trying to capitalise on it by providing more services related to cryptocurrencies.
