Burbanks car rental website has been updated with a new credit card feature, allowing users to rent cars with bitcoins or ether- based credit cards.
The company is offering a range of car rental options including bitcoin, ether, and even PayPal, according to the website.
“We’ve made a lot of changes to our payment options, and the new feature is a good step in the right direction,” Burbans chief product officer Rob Beddow told CoinDesk.
The website also includes a QR code for car rental to use as payment.
The new feature has been in beta for a few weeks, but Beddows stated that it has not been fully tested.
“I’m not sure we can test all the features right now,” he said.
“But it’s a very useful feature for people to use on their own time.”
Beddowed also revealed that the company will be testing the feature with more partners and users in the coming weeks.
Bitcoin and ether are cryptocurrencies that can be traded online.
Ether, on the other hand, is an alternative cryptocurrency.
The two currencies have different blockchains, but have the same underlying principles.
Bedds comments were in response to a question about how bitcoin’s adoption was progressing and the current status of the cryptocurrency.
Borrowing a line from Bitcoin Cash, which had a similar launch earlier this month, Bedded said that Bitcoin Cash had “overwhelmed” and that the community had a “great opportunity to help it grow”.
Beddo said that the new bitcoin and ethereum credit cards feature was designed to help people use the product as an alternative to paying by card or cash, with a similar level of convenience.
“For people who don’t have a credit card and want to use bitcoin or ether, we’ve made an easy way to do that,” Beddoes said.
He noted that the site has had a steady number of users since the site was first launched in April.
The bitcoin and cryptocurrency credit card service is currently available in Burbancost.com, a website where users can make credit card purchases online.
Burbanos new credit cards service is available to anyone over the age of 18.
