Here at Lindleys Autocentres, we are aware that cryptocurrencies are gaining lots of traction lately and that they offer many benefits over standard forms of payments.
We have come to the decision that all 5 of our branches, including our new branch in Carlton, will be accepting cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and Etherum as payments. We intend on accepting other cryptocurrencies like Ripple in the near future. So, now you can pay for your tyre fitting in Bitcoin!
Although we are taking a risk by accepting cryptocurrencies as the market is still volatile, we believe the technology will be widely adopted and we are glad to be one of the first auto centres to accept cryptocurrency payments.
You might be reading this thinking, ‘what is cryptocurrency’?
Cryptocurrency is a form of digital money that is secure, cheap to exchange and anonymous. It isn’t recognised by most shops and isn't a physical form of currency. The first cryptocurrency was Bitcoin in 2009, which has boomed in value to over £7,000. There have since been a number of alternative cryptocurrencies invented, such as Litecoin and Etherum.
To pay for your car service, tyre fitting or MOT in Nottingham with Bitcoin, Litecoin or Etherum, simply call your local Lindleys Autocentres branch and the team will give you a quote.
