As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment. According to a research produced by Cambridge University in 2017, there are up to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using Bitcoin.
A huge and foremost benefit to using Bitcoin is the complete freedom of payment. When transferring Bitcoin, you do not need to be concerned with the fine-print of your financial institution, hidden fees, or preoccupied with working hours. Bitcoin can be transferred 24/7 with no delays. Your wallet address and the recipients address are all you need when using Bitcoin. Clicking send ensures that the payment arrives in just minutes.
