Cleveland Heights, OH – Effective February 4th, 2014 The Wine Spot accepts Bitcoin payments from retail customers. The Wine Spot achieved this partnering with CoinNEO, a Bitcoin consultancy serving Northeast Ohio.

“The Wine Spot leads Cleveland in this innovation. They offer valuable insight about Bitcoin’s capabilities for American retailers,” states Nikhil Chand, founder of CoinNEO.

 Bitcoin is an Internet-based digital currency system, frequently referenced by mainstream media such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Business Insider.

Bitcoins spent at The Wine Spot are converted to equivalent US dollars, with zero risk of loss. Chand integrated The Wine Spot’s existing point-of-sale system to record the Bitcoin transactions. Their upcoming online store will also offer Bitcoin as a payment option, shipping nationwide.

The Wine Spot owner Adam Fleischer is intrigued by the services Bitcoin provides to small business. “Bitcoin provides my customers the flexibility of another form of payment, and those investing in Bitcoin are searching for places to spend it. In addition, as a small business owner I am always looking for ways to manage expenses. At this point Bitcoin transaction fees are less expensive for me, versus credit cards and PayPal. I see why many believe digital currencies are the future,” says Fleischer.
