Bill payment AI-automation company Gobbill, today announced a new partnership with cryptocurrency exchange and digital wallet company Cointree, enabling users to pay bills with cryptocurrency.
The connection will allow users from both platforms to pay household bills using their crypto coins stored in Cointree’s wallet. The Cointree platform supports a wide range of digital currencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and more.
Gobbill’s users can also link a cryptocurrency wallet in their account and elect to pay their bills either by credit card, bank account or a specified cryptocurrency regardless of whether the biller accepts the desired payment method.
Shendon Ewans, CEO, and co-founder of Gobbill said the partnership would add significant value to customers who were increasingly looking to adopt digital currencies. The partnership aims to enable households and small businesses to easily and safely pay any bill with any coin.
“Digital currencies are becoming mainstream, and our view at Gobbill is to support customer choice and convenience. We anticipate a surge in the number of customers who would like to pay their bills in crypto in the coming years. Our partnership with Cointree will cater to this market and ensure Gobbill continues to remain ahead of the curve when it comes to allowing our users to pay their bills automatically while knowing they’re protected from fraud and scams. We are excited at Cointree to be partnering with Gobbill. This is a great opportunity for both companies to leverage our strengths and enable Australians to pay everyday bills with their choice of digital currencies.”
The announcement comes following Cointree’s launch of their new and revived exchange. Also, the partnership further builds on Gobbill’s recent announcements which will see Gobbill rolled out broadly to users via white-label agreements in Australia and overseas.
Gobbill has been bootstrapped funded to date and is seeking investment to support its commercial growth.
