RingPlus the First U.S. Telecom to Accept Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin For Cell Phone Services

LOS ANGELES, July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- RingPlus, the leading innovative mobile provider and cloud telecom MVNE/A, announced today that they are now the first and only wireless carrier platform in the United States to accept Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin as payment methods for your cellular service. RingPlus has partnered with Santa Monica-based GoCoin to provide one of the underlying payment platforms for these currencies. Members of RingPlus can top-up immediately using any of the three crypto currencies, and will soon be able to initially register phones, tablets and all manners of service with them as well. 

"We listened to our members who are asking for alternative ways to pay their bill, and are extremely satisfied to be leading the charge - so to speak." says Karl Seelig, CEO of RingPlus. "We're excited to be partnering with GoCoin, as we can now accept not one but three of the major new virtual currencies. This kind of diversity of choice is great for RingPlus' members as well as the wireless industry in general."

"Accepting popular coins as a form of payment directly aligns with how the millennial generation wants to take control of their money," said Steve Beauregard. "RingPlus clearly understands this trend and has taken the innovative steps to embrace what digital currency have to offer."

Cryptographic currencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin are current leaders of an innovative new payment ecosystem, one that isn't controlled by a central bank but by the users of the currencies themselves. Each currency has a dedicated community, is built from an extremely secure transaction mechanism, and allows possibilities in payment processing that are lower risk and more advanced than legacy credit cards. From microtransactions with little or no fees to anonymous donations, they represent a powerful new tool for consumers.
