How to pay your rent online using bitcoin and other digital currencies
Aussie financial services company Futweb has developed a simple way for Australians to pay their rent using bitcoin.
Futweb is the first Australian financial services firm to accept digital currencies, and the company has partnered with digital currency exchange Coinbase.
The company has launched the app Futwallet to allow its customers to pay rent using digital currency.
“We see this as a great opportunity to get people to get bitcoin and to have a secure, fast, easy way to pay for rent online,” Futweb CEO Adam Micallef told The Australian Financial Report.
Futwallet is the company’s first Australian app, but Futweb says it’s also looking at partnering with other online rental platforms in the future.
“The fact that Futwallet has an app is a sign that the app is catching on in the market,” Micallff said.
Futanobits, another Australian payment platform, has recently released its own bitcoin wallet, allowing users to store their digital currency at a number of bitcoin exchanges.
