There is still a sense of urgency for financial services to shift towards complete digitisation to keep up.”

While it’s true you’re still relatively limited as to where you can buy things with your cryptocurrency stash, the number of institutions accepting the tokens is growing. Often, the easiest way of making a purchase is with a crypto debit card. These cards are preloaded with your crypto, and while you spend your assets the retailer receives fiat money as payment.”
