Bitcoin adoption continues to grow rapidly worldwide. This adoption roundup features four merchants that recently started accepting the digital currency – a boutique hotel in Spain, parking lots, an electrical supply store, and online courses in Japan.
Park Realty Co. Ltd., which provides a parking lot sharing serving called QRpark, announced last week that it has started accepting bitcoin payments.
"It is the service to convert the industry's first monthly parking lot into a temporary parking lot," the company described. A parking lot owner just needs to set up a visible signboard on the premises to be shared. "Guests using the parking lot select the parking time at the time of parking and pay the fee using the [QRpark] application," the company detailed, adding that "Compared to [traditional] coin parking, capital investment is small, so the price is also cheap."
