Victorian pianist Matt Price has tuned pianos in some of the most unexpected places – luxury hotel penthouses and in the Outback – but it is his adoption of the digital currency Qoin that is striking a chord with his client base.
A second-generation piano technician has clocked up 25 years in the business and today he owns and operates a business called Fine Touch Pianos.
“I cover every aspect of piano care, as well as pianolas,” the Wodonga local said.
For the past three decades or so he has offered piano tuning, repairs, restorations, removals, and sales to customers ranging from children learning piano for the first time, to concert pianists, and international artists.
When Mr Price first came across Qoin he thought it was “an interesting concept”, so he opted to find out more.
“Qoin diversifies my business and opens it up to new people who want to spend Qoin, therefore targeting a new clientele.
“I think Qoin will be a popular payment method as it continues growing and I’m happy to accept it.”
In the past 18 months, more than 38,000 Australian small businesses have joined Qoin, the newest digital currency. Built on a blockchain, Qoin offers merchants and consumers an innovative and secure alternative to connect and interact.
Qoin Australia Chief Marketing Officer Andrew Barker says merchants and consumers are becoming more aware of the concept of digital currency and with Qoin set to launch in the United Kingdom in August with other countries to follow, it’s broadening its base.
“The more businesses that join the Qoin community, the more everyone benefits, providing a vital boost to local economies,” Mr Barker said recently.
