Crypto News: Portuguese Traditional Shoemaker Accepts Bitcoin, Merchant Adoption Rises

Portuguese Traditional Shoemaker Accepts Bitcoin, Merchant Adoption Rises

Tiago Máximo, a Portuguese shoemaker, is the owner of a small boot shop in Barcelona, Spain. His traditional handcraft method, inspired by his family ancestors in rural Portugal, contrasts with his sophisticated payment method options that include Bitcoin.

Urban Shepherds, a brand of traditional Portuguese work boots, has its only physical store in Barcelona. While founder Tiago Máximo is hopeful about growing the business brick-and-mortar style, he is also invested in selling online.

With cryptocurrencies on the rise, the more Máximo learned about it the more he agreed to it: “The concept and philosophy behind it all are amazing and it makes sense. And I think there is a need in the market for that. More than that, it is a demand”, he told Tech Crunch. “I’m an entrepreneur. Anything that makes us thrive and go further and better, why not?”

Despite accepting Bitcoin online, most of the company’s sales come from the physical store. Máximo, however, says he would like to be one of the crypto pioneers and is attempting to have a percentage of his sales in bitcoins.
