Montreal-based internet service provider oxio is the first ISP in Canada to accept cryptocurrency as a payment option. The company announced that it now accepts online bill payments through Coinbase Commerce, a platform that enables merchants to accept cryptocurrency payments in a fully decentralized way.
“As the first independent digital ISP in Canada, it was obvious for oxio to offer its customers a payment method built for the people of the internet. Canadians are more and more interested in cryptocurrency and we are happy to offer them a way to pay their bills with their preferred cryptocurrency; whether it’s Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin or others.”
—Marc-André Campagna, oxio CEO & co-founder
According to oxio, nearly 32% of millennials have purchased cryptocurrency, so offering a crypto payment option was a logical move given the demographic makeup of their clientele.
