Businesses now accepting cryptocurrency in the Keene area had a major expansion last month, with a professional car detailer “KD Prestige Detailing“, a rendezvous Vietnamese Pho chef “EuPHOria“, and professional cleaner “Pure Bliss Clean” all set up to accept multiple cryptos from customers.
Labeled “Crypto Mecca” in articles at Forbes and Bitcoin.com, the little college city of Keene, New Hampshire continues to be remarkable in its community adoption of various cryptocurrencies and boasts one of the highest concentrations of crypto-accepting businesses-per-capita on the planet. Now, that concentration is even higher with three new businesses onboard.
Businesses in New Hampshire are empowered to accept more cryptocurrencies than just Bitcoin (BTC) as the Portsmouth-based “Anypay Cash Register” app easily allows local owners to accept multiple cryptos at their point-of-sale, like DASH, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and even Bitcoin SV (BSV). Anypay was the first crypto payments processor that allowed businesses a choice back in 2017 when they launched with BTC and DASH. Anypay has since become the best real-life crypto payments platform, and they are located right here in New Hampshire.
The acceptance of multiple cryptocurrencies is one thing that sets New Hampshire’s businesses apart from many around the world. Many businesses globally were set up to take just one crypto, usually by someone who is a fanatic of that one particular crypto. However, we understand that businesses need to be flexible and that there will never be just one crypto, so business owners are encouraged to take the top few cryptos that are focused on payments, like DASH and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Bitcoin (BTC) these days is just too expensive for most small purchases due to its large fees by comparison. Businesses want to use what works best for their customers and customers want a choice, not a crypto cult that only promotes “one true crypto”.
With her new business, “EuPHOria”, the founding chef of Keene’s “Pho Keene Great”, Isabelle Rose, has struck out on her own and is now regularly meeting customers in Keene with hot Vietnamese food cooked-to-order. Another recent addition is Pure Bliss Clean, a professional cleaning service that handles home and small businesses. Also, Kenzy Dietz of “KD Prestige Detailing” recently won our radio giveaway contest we ran for months on 92.7 Bratt FM and decided to set up Anypay Cash Register shortly thereafter. Dietz had already been introduced to cryptocurrency by someone close to her and was elated to be the winner of the $500-worth-of-crypto giveaway. When asked what her reasons were for accepting cryptocurrency at her car detailing business, Dietz said, “Cryptocurrency is the currency of the future, so I am delighted to be a local business that accepts it as payment. Not only is it easy to accept, but it’s a great way to broaden my businesses acceptance of alternatives to paying with just cash, checks, or debit. The future is coming.”
One legitimate objection to accepting cryptocurrency at one’s business is that it’s subject to wild swings in price. When a business needs to pay its vendor quickly and that vendor’s not yet onboard with crypto, that means some of the crypto needs to be converted to the dreaded government “fiat” currency – the US Dollar. Central Bank money like US Dollars do not go up in value by design and only lose value over time through inflation. While crypto can be wild ride, it does have the potential to go up over time, and in fact has. For those business owners who need quick crypto-to-dollar service, Anypay recently made it possible with their new ACH service that deposits the day’s cryptocurrency purchase dollar value into your bank account, within 1-2 business days. If you’re in the Keene area and want to explore how you can begin accepting cryptocurrency from your customers, it’s easier than you think.Read More
