The market speaks on the use of crypto for daily use.

The market speaks on the use of crypto for daily use.

Online travel portal Future.Travel has removed the ability for customers to utilise the alternate coins, ETH, LTC, BCH for payment as online sales volumes of the alternate coins could not keep pace with Bitcoin or Bitcoin Lightning payments.

David Watson, General Director at Future.Travel stated that a combination factors lead to the demise of the alternate crypto currencies. “The 3 currencies were never mainstream retail transactional currencies for us. The volumes passing through the system and from consumers feedback indicated that the alt coins were not seen for being used in everyday transactions and, in many cases, were just being used to ‘empty’ old investment positions in the coins. Currently we see Bitcoin Lightning payments continuing to grow in regular use as well as on-chain Bitcoin transactions. Literally after a few years of availability to retail consumers, the market has spoken and the alternate coins were not being selected for use as a ‘daily currency’ for us. ” 



Future.Travel had been using Bitcoinvn.io for merchant processing of the alternate coins and currently uses NeutronPay.com for its Lightning network transactional merchant processing.
