The executives of the platform consider Litecoin to be a safe and reliable crypto currency. That's why TapJets customers can now book a private flight with LTC and go on a flight without waiting for the transaction to finish on the block. Payment in LTC can be made directly from your smartphone.

We are obsessed with making TapJets user experience as simple as possible.  When we decide to accept a new payment method, we have to make sure that our 18,000+ users have minimal impact to theirs in-app user experience, and the exchange rate is accurate and accounts for all of the fees. 

Eugene Kesselman

CEO, TapJets

Earlier, in addition to traditional payments on credit cards and bank transfers, the platform accepted only bitcoin and Ethereum as payment.

As the creator of the Litecoin network Charlie Lee wrote on Twitter, it took only two weeks to implement the idea of the platform. Also, according to Lee, speed, liquidity and ease of integration make Litecoin an ideal crypto currency for payments.

The eToro social investment platform introduced a cryptocurrency wallet with support for Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin.

Representatives of the company say that eToro Wallet is available to all EU residents, as well as Switzerland and Gibraltar. However, in order to take advantage of the new wallet, platform users must be members of Platinum Club, that is, they must hold assets worth $ 25,000 on the platform. But the company promised to soon provide access to the eToro Wallet for a wider range of users, as well as add other coins.

We believe that crypto and the blockchain technology that underpins it will have a huge impact on global finance. Blockchain has the potential to revolutionise finance and we believe that we will see the greatest transfer of wealth ever onto the blockchain. We believe that in the future all assets will be tokenised and that crypto is just the first step on this journey. Just as eToro has opened up traditional markets for investors, we want to do the same in a tokenised world. The eToro wallet is a key part of this.

Yoni Assia

CEO, eToro

The app is already available for the Android and iOS operating systems. To use a mobile wallet, users must be verified on the platform.
