The demand for Bitcoin (BTC) and few other virtual assets have been growing day by day in the United States as different companies have been taking an interest in adopting digital currencies for payment purposes. Recently, another distinguished American chain of coffee shops and convenience stores named Sheetz Inc. has started accepting Bitcoin (BTC) and few other virtual currencies for payments throughout its outlets in America. On the 27th of May 2021, Sheetz publically announced the partnership with Flexa, which is well-known for the payment solution. Officials shared that by using the Flexa payment network, the customers would be able to pay for the services and products of Sheetz via cryptocurrencies.
Sheetz officials shared the details of collaboration in the announcement that crypto payment won’t be for some selected spots. Rather Sheetz will entertain customers to pay via cryptocurrencies throughout the extended network, which includes gas pumps, in-stores, and more than 600 convenience store outlets across West Virginia, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, and few other states of America. For the payment, Sheetz’s convenience stores will be accepting Bitcoin (BTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Litecoin (LTE), and Ethereum (ETH). It is reported that Sheetz’s collaboration with Flexa for the adoption of crypto payments is a part of the firm’s extended developmental plans in relationship with the National Cash Register (NCR) regarding the point-of-sale payment methods.
Along with enabling Bitcoin and other crypto payments, Sheetz is planning to entertain the customers with a Flexa-enabled application for payments as a reward for loyalty toward the company. Crypto is evident of prominent adoption in the arena of loyalty rewards and rebates as virtual currencies have been considered viable for the sake of rewarding patrons. Back in March 2021, America’s luxury hotel named The Kessler Collections announced the adoption of stablecoins and crypto assets as a mode of payment for the ease of guests. And, now in the ongoing month, Sheetz announced about accepting Bitcoin (BTC) and few other virtual assets for payment across the wide chain of convenience stores across the United States of America.
Recently, MasterCard surveyed the utilization of virtual assets, which depicted that more than 40% of overall respondents preferred digital currencies over fiat currencies for payment and trading purposes. Keeping such interest in view, various firms are turning their interest and services toward the digital world.
