Today, we received our first payment for Tekedia Mini-MBA via a cryptocurrency. Many young people have asked us to offer that option for months, but I ignorantly refused. But today, Chinenye Okenze pushed hard: he educated me!
Quickly, I called one of our startups, Bitfxt to provide guidance. Bitfxt focuses on conversion of crypto to fiat currency, offering debit cards which simplify the use of cryptos to pay for basic things. I had felt that it was a smarter idea to invest in the exchange, infrastructure, etc without getting into the coin itself.
But you know what? I was scoring own-goals by not offering a way for people to pay via crypto. But we have corrected our errors: starting immediately, you can pay for our programs via BTC, ETH and LTC besides other options like bank transfer, Flutterwave, Paypal, and debit/credit cards. From the little research I did, BTC, ETH and LTC seem to be on the money. Yes, those are the only coins I can trust for now. As we have more confidence, we will activate more. You need to use our automatic registration option to do that.
- Crypto payment: Pay with Bitcoin (BTC), ETH, and other coins by checking out here; select the product, add to cart, and select Coinpayment at checkout.
When we finished the integration – it took less than 10 minutes – Chinenye registered and our team sent him his login details. This is the message: listen to young people; they are smarter!
