The Crypto Divide


Cryptocurrency usage is increasing worldwide, and recent consumers surveys show that most U.S. adults are now at least somewhat familiar with the term. Despite growing consumer enthusiasm, aside from exploration in the crypto industry by larger enterprise-level merchants, little information is available showing the perspective of small businesses and their sentiment regarding cryptocurrency acceptance.

To take a closer look, TSG conducted a survey of nearly 600 small business owners in mid-2021 with the goal of understanding merchant attitudes and perspectives on the acceptance of cryptocurrency as a payment method. In addition to the detailed survey results this report also covers popular crypto-processor profiles, an overview of trends in merchant crypto acceptance, a case study of El Salvador’s new Bitcoin Law, a special feature of an up-and-coming acquisition in the crypto space, and a transcript of an expert interview on the topic of merchant’s crypto adoption.
