There are currently over 1,250 merchants accepting BCH listed on Marco Coino and about 2,000 ATMs around the world. For Japan, www.bitcoin.jp/merchants has a list of BCH-accepting merchants with location details, contact info, pictures and more.
Singapore-based cryptocurrency trading platform Liquid has announced the addition of a new BCH/USDC trading pair, allowing its users to accept bitcoin cash or to trade it for the stablecoin. Exchange users will also soon be able to connect their accounts to the Bitcoin Cash Register app and receive USDC directly. This is a simple point-of-sale (PoS) app from Bitcoin.com that allows any business to accept BCH payments.
Bitcoin Cash Register lets merchants choose from over 150 fiat currencies, and cash out customers wanting to pay in BCH in a non-custodial manner, without any registration. The app is available for iOS and Android devices and has surpassed 10,000 installs on the Google Play store.
