There are a lot of Bitcoin naysayers.
Just as a quick disclosure, I myself hold Bitcoin in my portfolio, but not much.
Critics of the cryptocurrency claim that it is a hammer in search of a nail, and while the tech was revolutionary, the digital currency has very little proven use cases.
Today’s story is a reminder that not only is Bitcoin alive and well, but it’s seeing an increase in adoption as a payment method worldwide.
The newest reports highlight Spanish amusement park PortAventura’s acceptance of Bitcoin payments for park entrance and services—a global first for the amusement park industry.
Take a look:
Resort and theme park PortAventura World has become the first in Europe to accept payments in #bitcoin for the services it offers at its facilities located in Tarragona, Spain.
