LONDON, March 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Artefact London is the 1st tailoring business in the world to announce adoption of LiteCoin, Bitcoin & Ethereum as payment option for bespoke suits, shirts, tuxedos, overcoats & other custom made garments.
Tatyana Kozhevnikova, Founder of Artefact London, finalist of the FORBES 30 Under 30 Class of 2018 Arts & Culture Europe comments:
"At the end of 2017 I made a decision that as long as cryptocurrency carries value that can be legitimately converted into GBP & EUR, Artefact London will accept it as a method of payment."
The idea to adopt crypto payments came in a conversation with one of her South Africa based customers. Back in London on a business trip and collecting his suit, he was telling her that due to the banking & political systems instability more & more Africans are diversifying into Bitcoins & other tokens. To which Tatyana asked if he personally would prefer to pay in cryptocurrency over cash. Upon receiving a positive answer she decided to test if payments in BitCoin, LiteCoin & Ethereum would be of interest to wider audience, particularly to customers residing outside of UK.
"People told me I am crazy. To which I say the idea of a single currency Euro seemed crazy to some people not long ago too. If there are customers that might find it convenient to use a 'wallet' to pay instead of a Visa Card - I don't see why not give that option."
"I find the topic of tokens fascinating and am lucky to be in a position to test it for my own business."
"I am hoping that in the near future there will be sleek merchant solution applications to issue invoices and accept cryptocurrency payments."
