Cryptocurrencies & NFTs Grow in Popularity


Cryptocurrencies

With crypto payments on the rise, the market has experienced double-digit growth with Bitcoin and Ethereum leading the way. Customers find crypto payments fast, secure, and easier than traditional money transfers. In addition to personal payments, there is a shift in B2B that has become attracted to these technologies for their speed and security. Existing payment processing networks have already integrated into these networks and many more are joining in 2022.


Bitcoin began as a way to transfer value between two parties without the need for a third party, like a bank. This is known as peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions. Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, have since evolved into much more than just a digital currency with the introduction of smart contracts and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs). Many people around the world are now looking for ways to adopt these digital currencies into their daily lives.


As cryptocurrencies gain increased adoption and become a legitimate means of payment, its value will be compounded by the emerging technology of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). NFTs are one-of-a-kind digital good that can be bought and sold. Similar to a trading card or virtual property in a video game, NFTs allow users to own unique in-game items. For example, the NBA recently launched Top Shot, a collectible website where each “moment” displayed is dynamically generated and owned by the collector. Top Shot is only eight months old but has already generated over $637 million in sales.


The emergence of cryptocurrencies and the technology that allows them to operate is quickly changing how banks and financial institutions conduct business. Cryptocurrencies are becoming more widely accepted and used in everyday transactions, and the technology behind them is solving many of the issues with legacy banking systems. The biggest challenge facing this new industry is adoption. Once the signs of growth appear and market acceptance becomes more prevalent, we will see this new payment system begin to become more common in financial circles.


In conclusion, cryptocurrency is a revolutionary technology that challenges the way we think about money. The concept of crypto payments is not new, but it will become mainstream in the near future due to the advancement in technology. With merchant adoption and consumer education on the rise, it’s only a matter of time before this industry really takes off!
