It’s big news when a major corporation or non-profit, such as Wikipedia, starts accepting Bitcoin. A number of people want to have more places to spend their bitcoins. So Tech in Asia spoke with entrepreneurs in the Philippine Bitcoin space on what companies they would like to see accept the cryptocurrency.
There were no restrictions placed on the people we surveyed – they could name an international company with a strong Philippine presence, or a local brand. The only real requirement was that the company could contribute to the growth of the cryptocurrency in some way. Perhaps the firm accepting Bitcoin would represent a public relations victory, tap into a market that is already tech-savvy, or introduce Bitcoin to the Filipino masses.
