People living in ten African countries, including Nigeria can now buy airtime, internet data, electricity, tv subscription, airline tickets, book hotels, food, and event tickets using their bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrencies.
This is thanks to a new service called Quick by Paychant.
Founded in 2019, Paychant is a cryptocurrency payment gateway that aims to increase the adoption of cryptocurrency payment in Africa by building a platform that lets buyers use their favourite cryptocurrency to pay sellers or merchants.
According to the company, digital currencies should be spendable without exchanging them for fiat, and users holding these crypto-assets should have the option to make purchases with them directly.
“As our core mission is to make cryptocurrency spendable just as cash in Africa, there should be a place where people can make almost all their daily purchases in cryptocurrency. That is why we created Quick, a platform where people can buy (Electricity, Food, Tickets, Airtime, Internet Data, and many more) with cryptocurrencies like Celo Dollar, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Tether,” the company told Techloy.
