Many people are aware of Bitcoin. However, they often do not have opportunities to pay for goods or services with the cryptocurrency. That is changing at the Great Lakes Science Center, which has become the third U.S. museum to officially accept crypto as a form of payment.
Museums help to explore science, technology, culture, and history, and cryptocurrencies being integrated into their payment systems mean that tourists can now utilize cryptocurrency to actually pay for a memorable experience. The Great Lakes Science Center is a Cleveland-based museum that focuses on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and is a notable family attraction, attracting over 300,000 visitors annually.
Kirsten Ellenbogen, the CEO of the museum, pointed out that she hopes that this had larger implications for the city, stating:
“There is a lot of excitement around cryptocurrency. Accepting bitcoin is just a small part of the momentum to grow a blockchain ecosystem in Cleveland.”
