VoIP providers netTalk recently announced that they are accepting payments in cryptocurrencies, making them the first VoIP company to do so.
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.
netTalk 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.
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.
Nick Kyriskides, the Co-founder, and COO of netTalk said: “We believe in the crypto economy and blockchain technologies. This is just the first phase in a series of 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.”
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.
