It can be hard to remember that crypto is increasingly among us when you’re deep into the space. You may be checking news and market movements obsessively, while your acquaintance asks you, “Oh, you do stuff about those bitcoins?” But the general public is catching on, and the naysayers yelling “It’s a bubble!” are becoming rarer by the day.

People are becoming more familiar and even more at ease with cryptocurrencies. And since this may be hard to see from our vantage point, we at Cryptonews.com assembled another list of 20 adoption cases throughout the world, spanning from tiny things to big ones. Maybe you’ll recognize your own country here!
