David Kemmerer, co-founder and CEO of CoinLedger, commented on the findings.

“The growing number of businesses accepting cryptocurrency payments reflects the growing acceptance and adoption of digital currencies in the mainstream economy. This trend not only aligns with the changing preferences of tech-savvy consumers, but also offers benefits such as reduced transaction fees and increased security. From large retailers to small businesses, the diversification of sectors adopting cryptocurrencies demonstrates the versatility and potential of blockchain technology. As this trend continues, it is likely to contribute to greater acceptance of cryptocurrencies as a legitimate form of payment, paving the way for a more decentralised and accessible financial landscape.”
