Crypto Payments Gains Massive Adoption

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are growing in popularity as a peer-to-peer payment method. The enhanced transaction speed, anonymity, low cost, and security they offer have made them an attractive alternative to fiat payment options.

A survey by accounting firm Deloitte confirms this assumption. The survey found that almost three of four US consumer businesses intend to integrate crypto payments by 2023 year-end. 

Also, Deloitte discovered that 87% of the surveyed businesses agreed that accepting crypto payments would grant them a competitive edge. Furthermore, integrating crypto payments allows merchants to offer various options, accommodating customer preferences. 

In addition, the Binance Pay announcement revealed that crypto payments allow merchants to improve user experience through innovation. 

Notably, the latest move allows Binance to explore Brazil’s growing crypto market. In September 2022, leading on-chain analytic firm Chainalysis published a report on the Global Crypto Adoption Index. The report recognized Brazil as one of the countries with the highest rate of crypto adoption, ranking 7th worldwide.
