Bitcoin has gained immense popularity over the past few years and its price has skyrocketed dramatically. Therefore, we can't be surprised that more and more industries are trying to attract new people and adding payment options in Bitcoins or other popular cryptocurrencies. In order to move with the times, it is important to follow the trends that consumers are watching. Cryptocurrency is one of them.
Cryptocurrencies can be most simply described as a virtual currency, which has no physical form. We can use it to pay for all kinds of goods, just as in the case of bank transfers. One of the biggest advantages of cryptocurrencies is that the "coins" or transactions using them cannot be counterfeited. The most popular cryptocurrency is of course Bitcoin, but Ethereum, XRP and Tether are also notable.
Speaking of cryptocurrencies, it's important to mention the decentralization they feature. This means, more or less, that this money is not dependent on any authority, person, or state. There is nothing that can manipulate the rate of individual cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies can be obtained in the process of so-called digging, in which we lend the computing power of our equipment (mainly the graphics card) to perform complex mathematical operations. It is for such actions that we receive cryptocurrencies, which can then be used to pay for all kinds of products in a fully secure and anonymous manner.
Plastic surgery is not available to everyone, mainly due to the high price of such procedures. However, if someone has Bitcoins, you can safely conclude that this is not the first person on the street, but an investor who can not complain about lack of money.
Bitcoins have many advantages and disadvantages, and for patients who wish to have plastic surgery, they are often a great convenience. Above all, they allow for the discretion that investors crave. Transactions using cryptocurrencies are also a benefit to the seller, as they are exempt from processing fees.
"While some patients love cryptocurrencies because they can't be detected, others use them simply because they don't have cash," says Dr. Dara Liotta, a plastic surgeon who practices on New York's Upper East Side.
There's no denying that cryptocurrencies are in a much better position than they were just a few years ago. This form of payment is already trusted by many stores, online casinos, as well as construction companies and new technology vendors. Therefore, it seems that the joining of surgical clinics to this group is something natural and sooner or later it had to happen.
It is also worth keeping in mind that the vast majority of people who perform plastic surgeries on themselves are wealthy individuals who do not have to worry about the affairs of an average Kowalski. The price of such procedures is high, hence many people prefer not to keep cash with them for fear of theft. Their virtual cryptocurrency wallet is virtually impossible for anyone to peek into, and transactions are safe and anonymous, making it a convenient option for this type of person.
Cryptocurrencies are becoming increasingly bold in all industries around the world and their presence should come as no surprise. It is another of the many payment methods that has its pros and cons. If someone can pay for plastic surgery in cash or by wire transfer, why shouldn't they be able to pay for it with Bitcoin, Tether, Ethereum or another popular cryptocurrency?
