)-- As cryptocurrency markets grow, the integration of merchants willing to participate in blockchain transactions will be essential in large scale adaptation of the industry. Currently, there are over 100,000 merchants worldwide who accept various cryptocurrencies with the likes of Microsoft and Expedia being some of the big names. The vast majority of merchants participate in e-commerce transactions and the adaption of hard merchandise and service based payments has been slower. While overall acceptance of cryptocurrency has been slow in healthcare, cosmetic surgeons have accepted payment as early as 2013. (Vanity Cosmetic Surgery).
Using the Coinbase Commerce platform, Sagar Patel Aesthetics, has begun accepting payments for all surgical fees. This move marks the continued integration of cryptocurrencies into industries outside e-commerce. In addition to the importance of seeing cryptocurrency accepted in the most famed plastic surgery market in the world in Beverly Hills, Dr. Patel’s specific adaptation of Coinbase Commerce will permit payments of non-Bitcoin cryptocurrencies and digital assets that make up the other half of this growing $210 million market. "It is very common for cosmetic patients to request the utmost privacy and security in payment and cryptocurrency provides the highest level of both," says Dr. Patel who is an early adpator in the sector.
