CheapAir.com first online travel agency to accept Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and Dash

Travelers Can Now Use These Digital Currencies to Purchase Flights and Hotels on CheapAir.com

Calabasas, CA (May 22, 2018) – CheapAir.com announced today that it has become the world’s first online travel agency to accept Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and Dash as payment for flight and hotel bookings. Already a leading merchant in the digital currency space, CheapAir has been accepting Bitcoin since 2013 and remains the only online travel agency in the U.S. that allows you to buy flights with Bitcoin.

Over the last 12-18 months, interest in digital currency has grown substantially, sparking the growth of a number of offshoot currencies. Many of these were developed to avoid or improve upon some of the shortcomings or challenges that have emerged with Bitcoin as the network has become stressed with higher transaction volumes. In different ways, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Dash all promise improved transacatability than their predecessor, with faster transaction times and/or lower fees.

CheapAir’s move to broaden its digital currency acceptance comes in response to customer demand. “Our cryptocurrency customers tend to be very vocal about what they want, something we appreciate very much,” said CEO Jeff Klee. “Over the last six months, we’ve seen a huge uptick in the number of customers requesting alternative currencies, so we’ve worked hard to integrate the three that were most requested.”

Klee acknowledged that accepting digital currency on behalf of airline and hotel suppliers who insist on being paid in fiat currency does have its challenges. But he noted that, with Bitcoin, CheapAir has already solved those challenges. “We already had the plumbing in place to make digital currency payments work seamlessly for our customers and suppliers. That made adding Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Dash a relatively minor endeavor for our development team, but a huge benefit for our crypto customers.”

As is true with any flight booking on CheapAir.com, purchases made with digital currency are protected by their unique Price Drop Payback™ protection, offering up to $100 back if airfares go down after your purchase.

比特币SV(BSV):以创纪录的水平扩容,并将保持继续

有些人认为,比特币上是不可能有大型区块的,然而比特币SV(BSV)已证实了这种观点是错误的。许多人对BSV技术有所畏惧就是因为它优于其他加密货币,所以他们试图通过个人观点出发的商业决策来干扰这个宏大的使命,但BSV现在正用先进的技术证明反对者的谬论:就在七月,BSV会将其区块上限提升至2GB(即2000兆字节!)。 身为nChain工程总监同时兼任比特币SV节点团队技术总监的史蒂夫•施德斯(Steve ...
