Find a merchant that accepts bitcoins (BTC)

Still too few in France, thanks to Coinmap, we find merchants accepting payments in bitcoins (BTC) on a card. There are also distributors (ATMs) as well as on Coin ATM Radar. It should be noted that since the Pacte Act, ATM installers in France have to procure PSAN and therefore there is virtually no ATM in France. The coordinates that the locations in question show must therefore be checked before moving, if necessary.
