Attendees can now buy tickets with Bitcoin Cash (BCH) at Bigtickets.com as the event ticketing platform expands payment options with acceptance of cryptocurrency.
As the fall festival and conference season ramps up in the United States, Big Tickets has released an integration with Bitpay, and now accepts Bitcoin Cash for online transactions.
Big Tickets knows Bitcoin Cash is the world’s only digital, low-cost, fast, secure transaction-based currency. The average transaction costs on BCH are consistently $0.002 compared with 2-3 percent of Visa, and they come without the worry of fraud and chargebacks. Pioneering merchants are excited to accept Bitcoin Cash as a payment method due to these advantages.
“We know our dedication to innovation is deserving of a secure and seamless purchase method for our event attendees. The use of Bitcoin Cash is a major social trend we’ve been following and we’re excited to be one of the first event ticketing platforms in the United States to accept the burgeoning cryptocurrency,” said Jason Henley, CTO.
