When we talk about the role of Bitcoin (BTC) or blockchain in business, we are talking about either business ventures building blockchain/cryptocurrency systems, products or infrastructure; or the integration and adoption of cryptocurrency in existing enterprises as a supported payment method. 

Bitcoin and cryptocurrency businesses face incredible challenges on two fronts: regulation and adoption.

Over the years, many high-profile crypto businesses such as some of the leading exchanges have had to move operations across the country or to other countries entirely to avoid severely inhibiting regulatory constraints in certain jurisdictions. 

At the same time, mainstream adoption by individuals and established businesses is a very steep uphill battle for entrepreneurs as they attempt to make crypto more accessible and compelling to enterprises and laypeople alike. 

Stay tuned as we chronicle blockchain and cryptocurrency’s shifting role in the world of business.
