netTalk becomes the first Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) provider to accept cryptocurrency payments. The company has announced that they’ll accept payments in the form of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin. All netTALK products and services will have the Crypto Payment Feature on them. This includes the new ezLINQ device, 4G LTE wireless service and netTALK’s Smartphone App.
All these apps are available for both Android and iOS. Users can buy TALK credits easily via netTALK’s CONNECT portal after setting up an account online. Upon downloading the netTALK CONNECT – TALK app, users can see their TALK credit balance. With this, users can call landlines and mobile phones across the world, at the best rates.
They aim to provide mobile consumers with more freedom of choice, netTALK plans to leverage the latest technologies to achieve this. The company has replaced landline telephones with ultra-low cost digital alternatives which are affordable home and on-the-go digital phone services. These ensure that users get to enjoy clear quality calls with friends and family. Their latest offering is the device called ezLINQ, a VoIP ATA and mini-WiFi router combined into one compact device. This enables users to make crystal clear calls over the internet using any standard handset phone.
The cryptocurrency market is growing exponentially and more and more industries are turning towards cryptocurrency payments. They believe that it’ll ease and improve payment transactions. But the telecommunication industry has been slow to adopt digital currency payments. netTALK’s Crypto Payment Feature will be the first in the industry to serve the cryptocurrency community. This will open the company’s VoIP services to new audiences around the world.
Nick Kyriakides, co-founder and COO at netTALK says,
“We believe in the crypto economy and blockchain technologies. This is just the first phase in a series of initiatives to integrate VoIP technology with cryptocurrency and blockchain platforms.”
He further adds,
“As part of this initiative we will also be creating a new crypto team at netTALK, focusing on implementing a broad range of products and services based on blockchain technology.”
The launch of netTALK’s Crypto Payment Feature will be a game changer for the company. And being the first organization in the telecommunications industry will definitely give it a boost.
