The future of cryptocurrencies

09/08/2019 By StarkPayments

At the time of writing this post, the total MarketCap for cryptocurrencies has exceeded $302b. That is a huge number. Anyone who questions whether there is a future for cryptocurrencies, I think that number just says it all. It’s too big to bottom out.

Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency that took the World by storm, and holds over $200b marketcap.

In recent months and years, we’ve seen the value of cryptocurrencies skyrocket, but also drop massively. Yes they are volatile, but it’s an industry that is just a decade old.

Whilst more and more enthusiasts and interested parties invest in crypto, with a hope them going up, I feel that there is a much larger opportunity, one that is global, one that will shape they way everyday consumers interact with commerce and how commerce engage with this revolutionary system.

Cryptocurrencies will be part of our everyday lives and we will be using them to buy goods and services, just as we do with debit or credit cards. There is still some innovation and some hurdles to cross, but we’re not far from that goal. We certainly ain’t 🙂

For the last couple of years, Stark has been working on a brand new platform that enables existing payment companies, web developers and other system integrators from across verticals to accept cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, ethereum and xrp as payment method for online and instore merchants. We also welcome merchants to work directly with us and have developed an advanced crypto accepting plugin for shopping cart platforms such as WooCommerce and Shopify.
