As institutions like Tesla and MicroStrategy continue to adopt cryptocurrencies into their investment strategy, crypto’s future looks bright. Meanwhile, at BitPay, we continue to welcome aboard new merchants, all the while releasing new products and services that make crypto transactions easier — and more profitable than ever — for the global business community. It has been an exciting month, with new and exciting product and feature launches.</p><p><em><em><strong><strong>In This Issue:</strong></strong></em></em></p><!–kg-card-begin: html–><aside class=”toc”></aside><!–kg-card-end: html–><hr><!–kg-card-begin: markdown–><h2 id=”BitPay In the Spotlight”><span><br>BitPay In the Spotlight</span></h2><!–kg-card-end: markdown–><figure class=”kg-card kg-image-card”><img src=”https://bitpay.com/blog/content/images/2021/03/Simplex-Banner.gif” class=”kg-image” alt></figure><ul><li>The BitPay Card – <a href=”https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210212005047/en/BitPay-Card-Adds-Support-for-Apple-Pay”>now available on Apple Pay</a>!

Its blockchain derives from another altcoin – Litecoin. Dogecoin is most notable because it uses a scrypt algorithm. So, unlike Bitcoin, which has a maximum ceiling of 21 million mineable coins, Dogecoin has an unlimited supply. Thus, inflation in numbers drives down the price.</p><p>Dogecoin has been adopted primarily as part of a tipping system on Reddit to reward the creation or sharing of quality content within communities that use the currency. In addition to mining it yourself, you can also purchase coins or get them from a Dogecoin faucet. A faucet is a website that gives away a few coins at a time in “drops” for free.</p><figure class=”kg-card kg-image-card”><img src=”https://bitpay.com/blog/content/images/2021/03/Dogecoin-Price-Chart.png” class=”kg-image” alt srcset=”https://bitpay.com/blog/content/images/size/w600/2021/03/Dogecoin-Price-Chart.png 600w, https://bitpay.com/blog/content/images/2021/03/Dogecoin-Price-Chart.png 624w”></figure><!–kg-card-begin: markdown–><h2 id=”WProduct Spotlight: BlinkSky Gift Cards”><span><br>Product Spotlight: BlinkSky Gift Cards</span></h2><!–kg-card-end: markdown–><p>Looking for ways to integrate your business with BitPay?
