Companies from different Industries, Political campaigns, and many more Services are accepting Bitcoin as a legitimate source of payment moreover, people around the world have also begun accepting Bitcoin as a medium of exchange, since there are many implications to Blockchain Technology

It turns out Businesses and Governments from around the World are slowly accepting Virtual Currencies, as they partner up with upcoming Third-party Bitcoin services that act as middleman to facilicate the exchange of Cryptocurrency directly to Fiat Currency

Some companies like Dell and the other big names started accepting Bitcoin due to an aggressive marketing campaign by Coinbase which included having their first $1 million worth of transactions processed for free. This was especially the case in 2014, when Bitcoin prices crashed the following years due to the Mt.Gox hack which prompt many established Companies to stop accepting Bitcoin while some resuming Bitcoin payments the following to years come

My guess is that all these companies have stopped accepting Bitcoin due to lack of consumer use and/or eventually no longer having free transaction processing from Coinbase. Some Merchants may have stopped using Bitcoin due to fees or its long confirmations, but main reason is because not enough people were using Cryptocurrencies for Merchant purchases to matter

Keep in mind, that many of these Services may not directly invest in Bitcoin due to it's volatile nature which categorizes it as a high-risk investment, as it's still relatively new technology yet to gain more accepted by not just the general public but also Financial Markets


It would be a huge mistake not to accept these upcoming Digital Currencies as a form of payment especially as it's widely gaining accepted around the World, with many praising it as ''disruptive tech''.


Usually, these Companies will use Third-party services like Bitpay & Cryptopay to have direct access to the Bitcoin Markets, allowing Merchants a solution to avoid speculating Bitcoin as an investment but instead use it rather as form of payment method

Cryptocurrencies right now are deemed High risk investment, a Business will be reluctant to speculate Bitcoin Market, this is especially true for big Corporations who have too much at stake or small companies that can't risk their profit by holding Bitcoin

To stay more relevant, Businesses should thrive to offer greater Cutomer service, recognizing Cryptocurrencies as a medium of exchange by simply having to partner up with Independent Services that act as an payment processor, but at same time provide a easy solution for both Clients and Merchants to start accepting Bitcoin & Cryptocurrencies payments

The following are the list are the companies that accept Bitcoin:

Thanks for this. And you know what would be great...a blockchain that retaillers can post their website to when they accept a cryptocurrency (not just Bitcoin) for payment. One of my businesses is an online shop selling tea, and to my knowledge we are the only tea business in the whole UK (possibly Europe) that accepts bitcoin...and we give 10% off for doing it! (Can I do a quick cheeky plug here...?) http://magnificent-tea.co.uk
