In a month that has seen Bitcoin hit new highs for the year, the good news just keeps flowing. According to new reports, some of the biggest retailers in the United States are now accepting cryptocurrency payments. These include Starbucks, Nordstrom, Barnes and Noble and Amazon-owned Whole Foods.
The new initiative is the product of a partnership between New York-based crypto exchange Gemini and payments startup Flexa. What makes it even better is that the entire process is as smooth and seamless as paying using Apple Pay or any other phone-based digital wallet.
