Crypto has been given a big push in the payment system as Whole Foods and Starbucks now accept Bitcoin via a 3rd party app Flexa and its wallet Speedn. Although they arent directly taking Bitcoin and it is done via the 3rd party it is good news that could pave the gateway for Amazon to start accepting crypto as Whole Foods is owned by Amazon.
These are just a couple of the big stores, Flexa is currently reporting that they support payment in 30,000 different stores, if this truly works out could we see a wider adoption? The 3rd party system was always going to be the winner, directly I am not sure any big retailers want the headache of dealing with Bitcoin wallets and addresses. With Flexa they can receive the money straight into their account while the customer can use what ever crypto we want to pay in
