The “Apple cafeConnect” service center, which sells Apple gadgets and provides services for their repair has begun accepting payments in cryptocurrencies.
Oh. I got too excited there. Freakin clickbait articles. It's just an apple accessories store in Belarus named “Apple cafeConnect”, ladies and gentlemen, not Apple Inc. Still good news, but yeah. It's not the official Apple company that started accepting bitcoin and ethereum. Oh well, for now, one can only dream of such tech giants accepting cryptocurrencies for payments.

Not sure if OP actually read the article and not only the headline.

When I saw title, I expected that may be clickbait, and I was right. This shop is not owned by Apple inc. It's just single shop in Belarus! Anyway, everytime when business starts to accept bitcoins, it's positive news. And I never heard that bitcoin is popular in Belarus, so it's a bit strange that this shop started to accept it.

Ive fallen on the trap too. Grin I did thought that Apple Inc. do really announce that they do accept BTC and ETH. This is why I did click the link and ending up on reading the misleading information since its just an another store which do accept crypto for their Apple accessories same as you said. Good for them and for those people who do live near on that place. If this thing would happen globally or even on Apple Inc. Itself then it would really be a huge step-up.

Hahaha just as everyone else I thought it was Apple Inc. Well, we should encourage small businesses to accept bitcoins too. It's still a start

You'd have thought that with all the [BREAKING NEWS] threads you've made, at least one of them would actually be breaking news.  Unfortuntely none of them have been.

This is irrelevant.  It's just one store which doesn't even seem to sell the major Apple products.

Apple is generally quite wary about cryptocurrencies, as you can tell from the lack of crypto-related apps on the App Store (which is far more regulated than the Play Store).

You see, we're still in a stage where we try to justify the high price with one single merchant at a time.

as a rule of thumb whenever you see an article from a less known news site or generally a news article with ethereum in it, you should disregard it because it is either a big fat lie or a very exaggerated half truth. Smiley

There are hundred of crypto apps on the App Store. Many that do not appear on my wife's Android Play Store.

LOL, even though it is a click bait, it is still a good news, and it is a good marketing for their business, although the payment process is different, but a win win situation for the customer, a buyer pays local fiat and get a discount through Bitcoin or Ethereum. A start of acceptance of Bitcoin in their community.

It is just a single service center in Belarus, probably run by third party vendors. BTW, is Bitcoin 100% legal in Belarus? The last time I heard, the Bitcoin users were facing a lot of persecution in the neighboring nations such as Russia and Ukraine. Just a few days back, the Ukrainian authorities raided a Bitcoin mining farm somewhere in that country and seized the equipment.

Apple will never start accepting cryptocurrencies before android. They didnt even want to crypto apps of their appstore for years. Android leads when it comes to this.

This is great news! Apple is a popular brand; therefore, it can circulate the bitcoin good news to more people around Europe. I look forward for more new investors in the coming weeks.

Just an idea: How can Google be convinced to include bitcoin in their payment transaction?

Let's make a change. Change makes you better. Change makes you smarter. Change makes you healthier.

that's a great news for us. it has been created a new window for the Bitcoin users. Bitcoin is becoming day by day payment tool in many areas. after food panda, KFC, Macdonalds and a number of prominent sites are accepting Bitcoin as a payment tool. now apple store also accepting Bitcoin for the payment purposes. so it can be said that Bitcoin is getting a strong and accepted currency in the virtual world.
this is the time to be legalized all over the world so that every country's people will get the equal benefit through this system. I think within few years, it will be a global currency.
