Belonging to no corporation, no in-house graphic design team at a shiny Silicon Valley startup, bitcoin’s logo has given the faceless project’s many adherents an image to hold on to. And not only to hold on to – but to emblazon on shirts, stick to laptops and stamp on physical coins – giving the digital project a material existence that has been crucial for its propagation.

Meanwhile, Sweden-based crypto gift card provider Bitrefill now lets you book AirBnB rentals in the US using five different cryptocurrencies.

Innisfil residents will be able to pay taxes with Bitcoin through a wallet called Coinberry Pay. The funds, sent in Bitcoin, will then be converted to the Canadian dollar and transferred to the town. Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and XRP may follow, according to national news agency The Canadian Press. The trial period for this payment option will last a year, starting in April.
