A lot has changed in the world of steem since I posted my first list of businesses accepting payment in steem back in the middle of December.
Bitcoin was shooting to the moon and steem was just tickling $2.00 and wondering if it wanted to give bitcoin a run for its money. SBDs had already decided to go for it and had just shot up to $10.
There was definitely a buzz arising around steem.
Now as I write this today steem has confirmed it wants to be a player in world of crypto and has just shot up and is nudging on $7. It is now sitting at a much more handsome #27 in Coinmarketcap.com. A place at the top 20 table awaits.
With these rises will come visibility, credibility and hopefully acceptance.
Since my first list of businesses I have been contacted by various people who have some form of business and are interested in accepting steem as payment in some form.
There is still work to be done on working out the mechanics of steem payments but the future is looking positive.
So here is the latest list of businesses accepting payment in steem.
If you run a business that does, or would like to, accept steem payments please post in the comments below or DM me on Discord @pennsif#9921. Likewise if you know of any businesses that should be on the list that I have missed let me know.

As well as these sites above there are also around 40 sites listed on coinpayments.net that have registered as taking steem.
Some of the sites on the list seem to be duds though so I am going to research all these sites further before including them in the list.
Has anyone actually tried this Coinpayments system for alt-coin payments?
