Major travel agency CheapAir has reportedly processed more than $5 million worth of bitcoin payments since its integration of the dominant cryptocurrency in 2013. To better serve cryptocurrency users, CheapAir CEO Jeff Klee said that the firm will soon accept Ethereum.
The plan of CheapAir to integrate Ethereum adds to the significant progress the cryptocurrency sector has seen in merchant adoption.
On April 16, CCN reported that Corporate Traveller, a division of Flight Centre Travel Group, one of the world’s largest travel companies, is integrating cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and bitcoin cash.
In an official statement, Corporate Traveller UK general manager Andy Hegley disclosed that the demand for a bitcoin payment option has increased in recent months from clients.
