Trevor Filter, co-founder of Flexa, said:
With interest in digital currencies reaching all-time highs, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that there are real, tangible benefits for the merchants who accept them—not only reduced fraud and cost savings, but also a better and more mobile customer experience
Sheetz has also turned to its point-of-sale technology partner NCR to help it accept crypto payments. Its announcement adds convenience stores to a growing list of businesses accepting cryptocurrency payments throughout the world.
