More P2P platforms, companies and even countries have adopted cryptocurrencies as a viable form of payment, which has subsequently validated crypto as both an opportunity to elevate the customer experience, as well as a new market of consumers to tailor services to; several entities have added the virtual currency into their business models, aiming to make ease of use as straightforward as paying with cash or a debit card. This is felt acutely here in the U.S., where the most number businesses, according to Statista, have a Bitcoin ATM or an in-person crypto payment option.

With more options than ever for consumers to put cryptocurrencies to use, could making big purchases with crypto, like an all-inclusive travel experience, become a reality?
