Many cryptocurrency enthusiasts often say that cryptocurrencies will only be used when ordinary people can integrate them into their daily activities. So far, acceptance of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at point-of-sale has not yet been widespread. But that is about to change.

Starbucks is the largest coffee chain in the world. Today they have over 30,000 stores worldwide and will begin accepting payments on Bitcoin through a partner platform. This is a big step for the entire encryption community, and it's probably a wise decision given that Starbucks' consumer profile has an affinity for coffee and technology.
