It is finding it’s way into a variety of POS (Point of Sale) systems, which are typically the internal system that collects credit cards in brick and mortar stores. Banks and credit card networks are also becoming more and more involved in accepting cryptocurrency.

How Does It Work?

If you are familar with cryptocurrency, you may have heard the term blockchain, which is the system used to record all crytpocurrency transactions. The transactions are recorded across multiple computers in a peer to peer network setting. This system is essentially a secure and decentralized payment system. This platform is encrypted and secure so that your payments are safe. Currently, Bitcoin and Ethereum are the most common types of crypto payments.

Many find cryptocurrency to be too cutting edge and do not see a need for this currency. However, we recommend our small business owners reconsider this idea as cryptocurrency became mainstream in 2017 when Bitcoin rapidly rose to almost $20.000 per coin.

As for small businesses, there might be various reasons to accept crypto payments. Being at the forefront of technology is one of these reasons. Another reason is to be able to attract customers who use crypto. Eliminating some kinds of payment processing fraud is another reason as well.

A few other things to know about cryptocurrency is that transactions, as mentioned above, are solely made”peer to peer”.  What this means is that buyers literally transfer funds directly to sellers. There is no third party involved which makes cryptocurrency decentralized. In other words, it is not backed or regulated by any central bank or government.

Another possible drawback to cryptocurrency is that the pricing is very volatile.  This makes the cryptocurrency  value unpredictable and hard to understand.
