BitPay, a payment service provider, has announced that Australian energy supplier 1st Energy now accepts cryptocurrencies, including Shiba Inu, via BitPay.
Aside from Shiba Inu, BitPay accepts Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Wrapped Bitcoin, and five USD-pegged stable coins (BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDP and USDC).
1st Energy, which was founded in 2014 and currently serves New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland, has become Australia’s first energy supplier to take cryptocurrency through a partnership with BitPay. This means that consumers of the electrical retailer can now pay their utility bills with any cryptocurrency supplied by BitPay.
BitPay, the world’s largest Bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment service provider, was founded in 2011. BitPay announced Shiba Inu inclusion into its wallet software in December 2021, allowing users to store, buy, swap, and spend SHIB.
The acceptance of cryptocurrencies grows.
SuperJeweler, a New York-based jewelry company, just announced its support of cryptocurrencies, including Shiba Inu, via BitPay.
The CEO of AMC, Adam Aron, announced on Twitter in late February that his company will introduce support for BitPay-powered online payments on its mobile app and website on March 19. “BitPay will be available for AMC online payments on our website by March 19, and on our mobile apps by April 16, potentially a few days sooner,” he said.
The Shiba Inu team just announced a “cutting-edge” collaboration with the John Richmond fashion line. The collaboration will see the release of a fashion line in the form of 10,000 non-fungible tokens (NFTs). These tokens will be shown in actual form at Milan Fashion Week.
