netTALK, a company on a mission to reinvent the landline telephone, today announces that it will be accepting cryptocurrency for it’s international calling services. This includes Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin, making netTALK one of the first companies in their industry to accept cryptocurrency.
The company offers affordable home and on-the-go digital phone services, replacing landline telephones with ultra-low cost digital alternatives. Their latest device, ezLINQ, a VoIP ATA and mini-WiFi router combined into one compact device, empowers users to make crystal clear calls over the internet using any standard handset phone.
The cryptocurrency payment feature will launch on all netTALK products and services, including the new ezLINQ device, 4G LTE wireless service, and netTALK’s smartphone app – currently available for Android and iOS. Users can set up an account online via netTALK’s CONNECT portal, and buy TALK credits easily with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin. Once the netTALK CONNECT – TALK app has been downloaded, users will be able to see their TALK credit balance and use them to call landlines and mobile phones worldwide, at the best rates.
With the cryptocurrency market growing exponentially, more industries are turning towards Bitcoin and other cryptos to ease and improve payment transactions. The telecommunication industry, however, has been slow to adopt crypto payments. The launch of netTALK’s crypto payment feature will, therefore, be the first in the industry to serve the crypto community, expanding netTALK’s VoIP services to new audiences around the world.
“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. 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.”
