oxio (the internet company that actually gives a damn) is the first internet service provider (ISP) in Canada to accept cryptocurrency as a payment option.
MONTRÉAL, March 15, 2022 /CNW/ - oxio now accepts online bill payments through Coinbase Commerce, a platform that enables merchants to accept cryptocurrency payments in a fully decentralized way.
"As the first independent digital ISP in Canada, it was obvious for oxio to offer its customers a payment method built for the people of the internet," said Marc-André Campagna, CEO & Co-Founder, oxio. "Canadians are more and more interested in cryptocurrency and we are happy to offer them a way to pay their bills with their preferred cryptocurrency; whether it's Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin or others."
Knowing that 31.68 percent of millennials have purchased cryptocurrency in the past, offering a crypto based payment option clearly fits our clients' needs. We also know that for many people, cryptocurrency is a bit of an unknown. So, we've done our best to explain what exactly cryptocurrency is and how it came to be on our blog .
We're always looking for ways to go above and beyond for our customers, and providing a variety of payment methods is one way we do that. We started by accepting credit cards, then direct withdrawals from our customer's bank accounts, and now cryptocurrency.
"This initiative will allow oxio to lead the charge by offering a crypto-friendly alternative in the connectivity space." Marc-André Campagna, CEO & Co-Founder.
Customers will be able to select Coinbase Commerce as a payment option directly in their online customer portal and pay with the currency of their choice; Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dai, Ethereum, Litecoin or USD coin.
