Tapjets Private Airline Company Now Accepts Cryptocurrency Payments
The American-based private jet charter company, Tapjets Inc is set to become among the first aviation companies to use cryptocurrency to make air flight booking among other services and payments on its platform. 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.
The Outcome Of The Voting Poll
With confirmation from the aviation carrier's CEO, Eugene Kesselman, TapJets took the liberty to offer a quick pool from their product team on which of the three listed cryptos would suit their “FLYTAPJETS” payment option. The conclusion of the poll saw 57k+ individuals take part in the Twitter vote post. Although initially at a neck-to-neck race, the three cryptos namely Ripple, Litecoin and Verge elicited mixed reactions.
However, that did not do much to change the outcome with Ripple emerging as the poll winner with 44%, while Litecoin (35%) and Verge (21%) come in at second and third respectively. From the poll outcome, TapJets will proceed to conduct a technical evaluation of how Ripple and Litecoin could complete integration on their platform. Hopefully, TapJets assessment phase will be done by May 28, 2018, and users can transact using the altcoin starting from June 1, 2018.
How The Chosen Altcoins Would Fare On TapJets
As perhaps the most unexpected twist, XRP overcomes LTC to emerge the winner of the poll. However, the altcoins remain one of the most relatable cryptos since it experiences low volatility. Still, a significant challenge presents itself in the lack of a stable wallet to hold the Ripple tokens
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
