Pay with Bitcoin or many other cryptocurrencies
You might have heard about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that are gaining popularity. Maybe you even own some?
Zappie Host has been supporting payments for our services using Bitcoin, XRP, Ether, Litecoin, and over 50 other Altcoins and cryptocurrencies since 2015
Why pay with cryptocurrency?
In some cases, paying with cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, XRP) can be much more convenient than using traditional payment methods. Here are a few reasons why:
- Transactions are quick and simple. The transaction speed of different cryptocurrencies can range between a few seconds up to 10 minutes, and therefore will always be faster than a traditional bank transfer. On top of that, you don’t need any physical payment cards and chains of billing details to make the payment.
- No added fees. Cryptocurrency transaction costs might depend on many factors. Still, ‘pre-mined’ digital assets can boast of nearly cost-less transactions while payments with Bitcoin or Litecoin might cost more because of miner’s fee. Zappie Host allows purchases via both Bitcoin and Litecoin the Lightning Network, reducing the costs to a fraction of penny.
- Pay from anywhere in the world. There are no cryptocurrencies that would care about the borders. Whether you pay with cryptocurrency in a local shop or transfer it to another continent, the payment will be processed in the same time frame, for the same price.
- Stay private. Nobody can see the identity behind a wallet address. Cryptocurrencies are well-suited for those who wish to retain a certain level of privacy. Other than your email address, we will not ask for any additional information.
