A doctor based in Detroit, Michigan has recently opened his own medical practice – and he accepts payment in Bitcoin.
Dr Will Powers took to Reddit last week to announce the opening of his new video game-themed practice. He specialises in family medicine, HIV treatment, and hormonal therapy.
Dr Powers notes: “The entire office is themed around video games and we accept Bitcoin here via BitPay as well as directly.”
However, he has stipulated that he is currently attempting to solve a legal issue with his lawyer regarding accepting and holding Bitcoin.
“Speculating on it makes the tax situation a lot more difficult than simply accepting it via BitPay,” he adds.
Coin Rivet also recently reported on another local business accepting Bitcoin payments. Cryptocurrency enthusiast and Colorado-based cannabis dispensary owner Brooke Mallers facilitated her store’s first Bitcoin-to-cannabis transaction last month.
