Don’t be afraid to ask if a local business accepts crypto! This is the only way that we will ever get adoption.
The next time that you are out shopping in a local business, ask them if they accept crypto. Trust me, just give it a try. The worst that can happen is that you get a strange look from the owner. You'd be surprised the number of local business owners who are willing to accept crypto to save themselves fees from the big boys like Visa or Mastercard.
If you want crypto adoption, show your local businesses that there is interest for them to accept it. If no one ever asks them about it, they will assume that no one wants to pay with it. Crypto is a wonderful revolution that benefits both you and the shop owner, while giving the middle finger to big banks and corporations.
