CoinGate Marketing Manager, Veronika Mishura said that the partnership with Argomall is a large step for cryptocurrency adoption, adding that this is CoinGate’s first such integration in Southeast Asia. Moreover, Mishura said, using cryptocurrencies as payment for online purchases present a cheaper and faster alternative to traditional payment methods.

“Crypto-adoption among retailers is definitely what we need to strive for. When more stores accept digital currencies, more users are prompted to buy all types of goods with cryptocurrency. This is exactly what crypto-industry needs for recognition that would lead to it becoming a standard payment method along with credit cards. Technologies like Lightning Network have already made it more convenient and profitable for businesses to accept cryptocurrency rather than fiat. We are thrilled to have Argomall on board. Hopefully, Philippine crypto enthusiasts won’t stay aside, and will start using this new payment method!” – Veronika Mishura, CoinGate Marketing Manager

The new payment option will become available on Argomall on April 1st. And it’s not an April Fools prank.
