If you’re interested in paying for a butt lift or tummy tuck with digital currency, it appears the stars are aligned with your goals. Dr. Rohit Jaiswal – the head plastic surgeon at Atelier Plastic Surgery – has announced he will be accepting digital currencies like bitcoin as a method of payment for cosmetic procedures.
Dr. Rohit Jaiswal Opens His Heart to Crypto
The move is pushing the goals of bitcoin and its digital counterparts closer to being achieved. What many people likely forget is that while bitcoin and many of its crypto cousins have taken on either speculative or even hedge-like statuses in recent years, many of them were initially designed to serve as payment tools. They were built to push checks, credit cards, and fiat currencies to the side, but this has been a relatively slow journey given the volatility that continues to drag them down.
It is extremely hard to understand when bitcoin and its crypto family will go up or down when it comes to their prices. Many stores and companies have been reluctant to say “yes” when it comes to accepting crypto payments for this reason, and to a degree, we can’t blame them.
Consider the following scenario: someone walks into a store and buys $50 worth of merchandise with bitcoin. For one reason or another, the store doesn’t trade the BTC into fiat right away and about 24 hours go by. From there, the price of BTC goes down and that $50 becomes $40. The customer gets to keep everything he or she bought, but the store has lost money in the end. Is this a fair situation? Not everyone thinks so.
That’s what makes enterprises like Atelier Plastic Surgery and its head surgeon Dr. Rohit Jaiswal so important. They understand the initial purposes of bitcoin and digital currencies and are trying to transform them into usable tools that everyday people can benefit from.
In a recent interview, Jaiswal said:
Since I launched the clinic, my team and I have always kept an eye on the future and cutting-edge technology that could make our patient experience richer. In addition to accepting cryptocurrency, we are developing our presence in the metaverse to allow patients another way of experiencing Atelier… Everyone on the planet wants to look better in some way.
Despite the ongoing crypto crash, there appear to be several large businesses and enterprises as of late opening their hearts to bitcoin and assorted cryptocurrencies. One of the biggest in recent months is Chipotle, a known fast-food chain that can be seen in several states across America.
Jaiswal continued with:
There is notable competition from other cosmetic surgery clinics looking to succeed. Additionally, we have had to overcome start-up costs with limited resources and an unfilled schedule due to our client screening.
