Why so few places accept Bitcoin in Oslo?
You might wonder why so few restaurants, cafes, and stores accept Bitcoin in Oslo? There are a couple of reasons.
- It is much harder to deal with taxes if payments are done with Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.
- Most people own Bitcoin to keep them, not to spend them, and therefore, few people are really interested in paying their bills with Bitcoin.
- Bitcoin has slow transactions and high transaction fees, which makes it almost useless for payments in normal daily life. Luckily there are other cryptocurrencies much more capable of dealing with daily purchases, but they are not that well known yet.
