Bitcoin growing as a currency as UK company to use it as payment at 27 airports

One of the biggest debates in recent weeks as the value of Bitcoin skyrockets to nearly $2000 per coin is whether the crypto-currency is really a medium of exchange, or simply a security that allows one to store their wealth in a decentralized digital wallet.  And while the argument has been strongly on the side of it being a security thanks to Chinese and Japanese investors using it simply as a way to find an alternative to their own devaluing currencies, on May 19 a British company is pulling Bitcoin back onto the currency side of the ledger by allowing its use at all 27 UK airports for extraneous payments such as short and long-term parking.

SkyParkSecure, an airport parking provider in the United Kingdom, is now accepting bitcoin for payments at a number of airports across the region in cities including London, Liverpool, Glasgow and Belfast. 
Are you a frequent flier in and around the UK? A parking provider will now take your bitcoin. SkyParkSecure will automatically convert the fiat pricing of a parking ticket into Bitcoin for quicker and seamless payments directly from your cryptocurrency wallet. 
Based in the North-West of England in Blackpool, SkyParkSecure doesn’t own or operate car parks but acts as a booking platform for airport parking and a host of other travel services including hotels and lounges. The parking provider claims to have facilitated over 1.6 million bookings on its website and ropes in customers with discounted rates. 
Now, SkyParkSecure has laid claim to becoming the first independent UK travel company to accept bitcoin for airport parking. - Crypto Coin News
