Daily Activities Like Grocery Shopping May Hold the Key to Bitcoin Adoption
Anyone involved or invested in the crypto industry or market has a desire to see Bitcoin succeed. Even those who prefer one of the thousands of altcoins over Bitcoin, do tend to understand that bitcoin adoption means overall crypto adoption, and the sentiment around the first-ever cryptocurrency typically controls the entire ebb and flow of the market.
But because the new technology is young and not yet understood by the masses, until it becomes part of everyday life and activities, it will struggle with adoption. This is why Bitcoin-rewards program Lolli has partnered with Safeway and Albertson’s supermarkets to launch a new initiative where customers can earn Bitcoin for shopping at one of the company’s 900 locations worldwide.

Bitcoin will also someday achieve this, although since it has so many different use cases, how it will apply to daily life may not be very apparent.

But thanks to companies like Lolli and their partnership with Safeway, or a recent move by Coinstar to offer Bitcoin in exchange for actual coins at supermarkets everywhere, the visibility of the cryptocurrency as a brand and technology will soon become something unavoidable in daily life, even doing something as mundane as shopping for groceries.
