Did you know that airBaltic, the flag carrier of Latvia, started accepting Bitcoin (BTC) as a method of payment in 2014? If Latvia is too far and 2014 is too outdated, oxio, a prominent Canadian internet provider, announced Bitcoin acceptance in March 2022.
Across the globe, cryptocurrencies, which use decentralized ledger tech for quick transfers, are not only gaining traction as tradable assets but also acceptance. Today, Bitcoin is a recognized mode of payment in El Salvador and the Central African Republic. How does SpendTheBits, a Bitcoin payment app, fit into this scheme of things? Can the app’s merchant portal further the development of a comprehensive crypto ecosystem in Canada?

First, the basics. The merchant portal by SpendTheBits is an extension of its widely embraced Bitcoin wallet and the payment app. The app is available on iOS and Android, and the portal for merchants adds more value to it.
Any merchant, regardless of the size of the business, can use the SpendTheBits portal to become a participant in the fast-growing crypto payments space. The merchant portal has a clean dashboard to provide an easily comprehensible overview of transactions. It is both fast and secure, thanks to SpendTheBits’ exceptional emphasis on the security of funds, which was a key factor in picking the XRP Ledger as the network is powering its app.
The merchant portal displays the account’s balance in Canadian dollars. It can help sort transactions on the basis of time periods, including weekly and monthly data. New system users can be assigned, allowing the merchant to delegate responsibilities in accordance with the job role of any employee.

Adding a business is easy. The merchant can generate the QR code for quick display at any convenient place. The code can be scanned by a customer using the SpendTheBits app. Gathering information on the transaction page is seamless. It allows merchants to track their daily activities and the transaction history can be transported to excel for reporting.
Cryptocurrencies have garnered a fair share of enthusiasts in Canada and the neighboring US. According to reports, many of these users of cryptos want to use their holdings to purchase goods and services. Tesla’s move to allow the use of Dogecoin for the purchase of its merchandise and oxio’s BTC announcement are stepping in that direction.
SpendTheBits portal is designed to keep in view the financial interests of merchants in Canada. BTC is being granted approval as a mode of payment by large-scale businesses. The shift toward digital currencies cannot be without onboarding businesses of all sizes. SpendTheBits is specifically designed for small- and medium-scale merchants, with a view to making BTC’s adoption easy, secure, and inexpensive.
It is a Canada-based cryptocurrency payment app, with secure XRP Ledger underpinnings. Many banking institutions are utilizing the services of the XRP network. Transactions on SpendTheBits are quick, thanks to approval on Bitcoin’s blockchain within a few seconds.
