Broadly speaking, payments are compensation for goods or services. A person can pay with cash, gold or any number of other things, depending on what the receiving party allows. Fiat money is most commonly used for payments, although crypto payments have become more common over the years. A number of services and platforms facilitate the ability to make a payment in Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies. Payment gateways have increased the ability to use Bitcoin in business, even for entities that are not directly in the blockchain business.
Cryptocurrency has gained significant adoption over time, with mainstream payments players also becoming involved with the asset class. Additionally, a person can pay with Bitcoin directly in a peer-to-peer fashion.
