Crypto Adoption: a New Collection of 20 Examples

With every passing day, there are more options to pay with crypto - or to use blockchain in the real world, even outside of cryptocurrency payments. Adoption is slowly but surely creeping in, and while governments and giant financial institutions are working on regulations, many citizens are already opting for crypto because they recognize its perks for their businesses.

Although a lot of adoption comes from Japan - already well-known for their openness towards new technologies - there is also an enviable number from cities such as Kiev, Kuala Lumpur or Negombo.
