20 Examples of Crypto Sneaking into the Real World

Remembering that crypto might yet reach mass adoption - or at least a level of consciousness surrounding the industry in the minds of people - can be hard when the markets are not playing along. Still, walking down the street and noticing a sign that says “Bitcoin accepted here” or references another cryptocurrency in some way can be taken as proof that maybe we’ve arrived at the point where the technology is too big to fail.

From Bitcoin cafes to locales giving discounts for those paying with crypto, Cryptonews.com has collected 20 examples of widespread adoption from all over the world. Regardless of whether you’re from Riga, Latvia or Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, chances are you’ll run into an example of adoption sooner rather than later.
