In August, the popular ride-sharing service Uber hired a new CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, who during his tenure at Expedia, Inc., introduced Bitcoin payments for hotel reservations at the company’s websites. Uber accepts payments in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies through third-party vendors, but does not accept direct payments in Bitcoin. However, earlier this year, there have been rumors that the company is testing direct payments with Litecoin. If its true and Uber does become the first company to accept only Litecoin, it will be a massive win for the cryptocurrency.
These are 10 companies and websites that accept Litecoin. The Litecoin community is growing and so does the number of merchants and companies that adopt it. While the number of companies and websites that accept Litecoin is smaller than Bitcoin, with the latter’s surge in price and popularity, it’s highly likely that the websites that accept Bitcoin will expand their cryptocurrency features and adopt Litecoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies.
