Regulation of cryptocurrency remains an ongoing issue for the Spanish government and regulators. Some measures aren’t too friendly against crypto ads or tax regulation improvements. However, adoption in various industries is increasing and the healthcare sector is joining the frenzy.
Patients could pay with digital assets starting June 1st
According to Forbes NegociosThe Spanish health group Biziondo, which specializes in spine treatments, accepts Bitcoin (BTC) and other payments for crypto assets within its clinical facilities across Spain.
After the increasing acceptance of the so-called “Bitcoin Revolution” around the world, management became interested in blockchain technology and did not rely exclusively on traditional banks or intermediaries for payments.
Commenting on the announcement, David Izquierdo, Biziondo General Manager:
It is clear that the Bitcoin revolution has already begun. In an economic context where 60% of the world’s money was printed by European, US, and Japanese central banks by 2020, financial disaster will inevitably be reached in about two or five years.
He added that while the future “is always scary”, people in the past have shown that “we are very capable of adapting to change and that what is to come will be a new revolution that is comparable to the appearance of the Internet. “
The health group has facilities in Bilbao, Madrid, San Sebastián, Málaga and Lorca where people could pay with cryptos from June 1, 2021.
Remove Fiat from private medicine
Izquierdo also pointed out how the company further explored blockchain technology before adopting bitcoin payments, as well as its role in private medicine:
With the elimination of “money b” in private medicine, a new philosophy is promoted in which citizens have the power to regulate themselves independently. After studying this technology for hundreds of hours, I personally made the decision to add the company to blockchain technology and digital currencies.
