Tapjets Private Airline Company Now Accepts Cryptocurrency Payments

In a somewhat unprecedented move, TapJets officials chose to air the news through their Twitter page with the public getting a chance to request for the inclusion of their favorite digital coin as a payment mode.

A probable good cause for the inclusion of Litecoin is its wide reputation and acceptance by many users. The altcoin is readily available in several crypto exchanges, and this provides for a stable running with fewer fluctuations regarding market value.

Despite the outcome, TapJets will look to utilize and implement the two top options as a means of transacting to increase its global reach and surpass the over 12,000 clients and
