Around a dozen cryptocurrencies, including popular meme coin Shiba Inu, Dogecoin, Litecoin, XRP, Bitcoin, Ethereum and a group of other cryptos (13 overall) can now be used for paying bills by users right from their cryptocurrency wallets.

Crypto adoption, including SHIB, expands

According to the press release, BitPay clients can now pay for everything, even for their mortgages and personal bank loans, thanks to a new partnership with Method Financial. All in all, this collaboration now allows BitPay clients to make payments to more than 5,000 companies that provide services thanks to the new feature called BitPay Bill Pay.

To make these bill payments via BitPay's Bill Pay, one needs to connect their bills to the BitPay app, link a wallet and that's it.

According to BitPay boss Stephe Pair, entering the sphere of paying bills in a major step for crypto adoption since a lot of unbanked people can now do that without having access to banks, bank cards, etc. Besides, as is the case with crypto payments in general, paying bills will now take a lot less time than it did through traditional payment platforms and banks.

Pair called this a major game-changing step for both users and service providers.
