Northern Queensland is leading the way in Bitcoin Cash adoption
Queensland, better known for its tourist hotspots, like the Great Barrier Reef and the Gold Coast is once again hogging all the limelight. This time it is because of its inherent affinity towards one type of decentralized peer-to-peer cryptocurrency, bitcoin cash (BCH). During recent months, many proponents of BCH have been propagating wider adoption of BCH in the northern parts of Queensland.
Local startup TravelbyBit has been given permission by the Queensland government to turn the city into a crypto haven. According to reports, the firm’s cryptocurrency point-of-sale system has been deployed to over 200 merchants nationwide, with at least 60% located in the state of Queensland.
North Queensland is slowly becoming the hub of businesses who are accepting BCH. The area has its own Bitcoin Cash meet-up, it is home to the country’s first BCH-only automated teller machine (ATM), and the area has a lot of BCH accepting merchants and the number is growing with each passing day. This week, using the mobile application Marco Coino, BCH fans have noticed that merchants in the state of Queensland now total 73 businesses with 33 merchants in the northern territory. This is like a testament to the growing popularity of bitcoin cash in the northern part of this scenic Australian state.
The growing popularity of bitcoin cash
There’s a whole lot of merchants in this northern region who accept payments in BCH and you can indulge in a whole lot of stuff and pay in BCH. You can use BCH to pay for buying artifacts and clothing at the Elements Studio, or maybe even remove that unwanted tattoo at Eraza Laser Tattoo Removal.
Bitcoin Cash supporters get the biggest high when they are able to pay for coffee with BCH. There’s no dearth of shops in northern Queensland, where you can have a sip of your favorite cup of java and pay in BCH. Some of the more popular joints that give you this option are Swagger, Jaxx Barber, and Alt Brew.
The Bitcoin Merchants crew has taken it upon themselves to keep everyone updated about the latest developments taking place in Northern Queensland. According to news. Bitcoin.com, Queensland ‘Country by day Rock by Night’ rock festival will take place in October. The event will feature Troy Cassar-Daley, and the McClymonts, and people who pay with BCH will get a discount. These types of promotional events add to the already growing popularity of bitcoin cash in the area and this is articulated very well by one of the advocates of bitcoin cash on Reddit:
“Concentrating on just bitcoin cash allows the North Queensland merchant groups to eliminate a large amount of customer confusion and more easily provide technical support for their merchant members.”
