I mentioned yesterday that ecommerce solutions is where the mass adoption of Hive lies. This is because it would provide an opening for people to spend their crypto for real products needed in everyday living.

Imagine that we have bookshops, restaurants, barbing shops, malls willing to accept crypto as payment for their goods and services, then, the demand for crypto would be on the increase. Beyond being a store of value, people would appreciate more if their crypto assets had purchasing power for physical products. I remember when I was trying to build my services platform and link it to the then steem blockchain, we got stalled when we needed to integrate a payment option that would accept Steem and Naira options simultaneously. Sincerely, I'm excited to discover HIVEPAY which is built to serve this purpose.
