It seems that cryptocurrencies have managed to worm their way into almost every industry. Now, as demand for the use of crypto-currency surges, mainstream businesses have been accepting a wide variety of crypto coins for payment. While Bitcoin [BTC] is an obvious choice to many, coins with lower profiles like SHIB are also being extensively employed. Now, a luxury health club in New York has been bitten by the crypto bug.
Equinox, a luxury health hotspot, has embraced crypto by partnering with prominent crypto payment processor BitPay, in order to provide its customers with a wide range of payment options.
BitPay supports an array of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Shiba Inu (SHIB). BitPay onboarded SHIB only in late 2021, despite this, the altcoin is steering into most of the platforms. While Equinox hasn’t shed light on the cryptocurrencies that would be accepted, the community speculated that Shiba Inu would be one of them.
As the gym is quite popular and is home to several celebrities, the addition of crypto as a payment option could not only lure in more members to the gym but also boost the adoption of those assets.
