Courier company now accepting cryptocurrency

Courier comparison company Fast Courier is now accepting cryptocurrency including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Litecoin and USD Coin as payment for courier services across Australia.

An estimated 17.8% of the Australian population owns cryptocurrency. Of these, 65.2% own Bitcoin, 42.1% own Ethereum, 26.4% own Cardano, 23% own Dogecoin and 14.6% own Binance Coin.

Fast Courier co-founder and CTO Stephen Murphy said the company is the first courier comparison site in Australia to offer the digital currency as a payment alternative.

“The courier industry in Australia is absolutely ripe for disruption; consumers want respect, accountability and freedom of choice, which Fast Courier’s cutting-edge tech delivers. Adding crypto to our payment options is another way we are levelling the playing field for consumers,” he said.

“Crypto isn’t just an asset class, they are functional currencies, decentralised and empowering for consumers and businesses alike. It’s a viable alternative to the restrictive central bank-led payment systems.”
