Surprisingly, it is USDt that comes in second place, with 14.8% or more 100,000 payments. Ethereum has only 10% of this market, at least by provider, although it is the second largest crypto.

This may indicate a special kind of eth that is not trying to take over the business market, while customer acceptance is a big theme for bitcoin. Hosting providers and companies like VPNs seem to benefit the most from crypto payments and Vaidas Rutkauskas, CEO of IT infrastructure provider Cherry Servers, states:

“We have integrated crypto payments based on the needs of our customers – many of whom prefer to pay with crypto.”

However, the use of crypto has become so widespread that all merchants in El Salvador, for example, are mandated to accept it for payment. The nature of crypto up front means you don’t need a payment processor.
