Georgia, a country at the crossroads of Europe and Asia known for its ancient and unique history, has become one of the most cryptocurrency-friendly countries in the world in recent years.
The Georgian government has announced its intention to turn the country into a major global crypto hub. And some steps have already been taken.
Recently, crypto exchange Gate announced the integration of Gate Pay's payment services into the development of Georgian crypto payment startup CityPay. The new service will allow merchants to accept payments in cryptocurrencies. This includes a wide range of services, including booking hotels, shopping in supermarkets or paying in restaurants.
According to the reports, Wendy's restaurants have already partnered with CityPay.io, allowing customers to pay for their orders in cryptocurrency.
In addition, Binance, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges, announced the opening of a new regional hub in Georgia to accelerate talent acquisition, promote blockchain education, and accelerate crypto adoption in the region.
