Progressive Care Inc. has announced that it will start accepting Bitcoin as a legitimate payment method for its Covid-19 testing services. Putting out the news, the healthcare technology company said that this facility would be available at PharmcoRx locations. Considering blockchain technology and cryptocurrency as the economy’s future, the organization has expanded its services pertaining to Bitcoin and now decided to offer it as one of the payment methods for Covid-19 testing services. The added convenience will enhance the overall speed of the transaction process and provide customers exposure to an alternative payment method.
It is important to highlight that this decision has come close to the heels of the Bitcoin conference scheduled to be held this upcoming weekend. Touted to be the largest Bitcoin convention, the conference is expected to have around 50,000 visitors, with the majority belonging to foreign nationalities. All the visitors have to go through the Covid-19 test, as mandated by the authorities, to contain the pandemic resurgence in Miami, where the event is scheduled to take place.
In anticipation of strong demand, the organization has already created a QR code for making the whole process streamlined, convenient, and user-friendly. PharmcoRx has been at the forefront of adopting cryptocurrency as it was the first pharmacy in the world that adopted digital coin payment way back in 2018. And now, with accepting Bitcoin for Covid-19, the company has shown its solid commitment to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
Progressive Care is a leading player in providing PCR-based Covid-19 testing services mandated by most international airlines as a prerequisite for travelers. The organization has already tested more than 10,000 people and generated testing revenue of $1 million. In sum, this development is expected to boost further the adoption potential of Bitcoin and blockchain among the wide range of target audiences belonging to different walks of life.
