The Bitcoin space allows for major innovations in the fields of both technology and consumer experiences. However, education and mass adoption are two areas where plenty of work needs to be done over the next few years. But not all of that work is up to the community itself, as we also needs a bit of help from companies. New York Towing & Recovery Inc. is now accepting Bitcoin payments for their towing services.

Plenty of Bitcoin enthusiasts are trying to convince cab drivers to get interested in Bitcoin. In fact, I have been involved in such conversations a few times last year, when taking cabs in London and Amsterdam. Bitcoin makes for a fun conversation, but unfortunately it remains up to the cab company whether or not they actually plan to do something with digital currency.
Towing companies is a market most of us have been overlooking for the past few years when it comes to pushing Bitcoin adoption forwards. However, these companies have not been sitting on their hands while Bitcoin was gaining more awareness. As a result, we now have the first towing company accepting cryptocurrency payments, next to traditional methods such as cash and credit cards.
New York Towing & Recovery Inc. has been in the towing business for a while now, and the team behind it represents over 25 years of experience. The major part of their business revolves around Roadside Assistance, which will come in handy when your car breaks down, you locked yourself out of your car or even if you run out of gas and need to reach a certain destination.
However, New York Towing & Recovery Inc. offers an additional service in the form of Licensed Vehicle Recovery (or Repo, as most of us know it). NY Towing & Recovery Inc is certified by the Department of Consumer Affairs for towing and repossession of your vehicle. Both of these services can be paid for with Bitcoin, cash or credit card.
Personally, I find this a truly unique market which could prove to be very valuable in regards to Bitcoin awareness and adoption in 2015. Bitcoin really benefits from having more use cases for “normal real life situations”, and getting a car towed or repossesses is as “real life” as it gets.
