Telecom Company AT&T Enables Cryptocurrency Payment Option

In the first of its kind, telecom company At&T, introduces cryptocurrency payment as an option in the United States of America.

A press release by the telecom giant stated that it would now accept online bill payments through BitPay, a cryptocurrency payment processor. Talking on the development, Kevin McDorman, vice president, AT&T Communications Finance Business Operations, said, “We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand our services. We have customers who use cryptocurrency, and we are happy we can offer them a way to pay their bills with the method they prefer.”

Additionally, the company stated that customers would be able to select BitPay as a payment option when they logged on to their accounts online or with the myAT&T app.

Surprisingly, BitPay did not have much to add to the news. They merely tweeted out the link to the AT&T’s press release. However, as it is with any announcement involving an exchange, there were mixed reviews, with some customers rooting for the move and some against it.

One user said, “Hey @verizon I’ll be calling later to cancel my service. @ATT clearly has the future in mind.” While another user stated in no uncertain terms, “Eww BitPay. Not touching that shit.”
