Battery World Greensborough Utilises Qoin Digital Currency
The giant Battery World business in Australia has taken its first steps towards using Australia’s newest digital currency with its Greensborough franchise just north of Melbourne introducing Qoin.
Qoin digital currency Queensland based and specialises in small to medium businesses.
Battery World Greensborough owner, Elias Hazouri, has fielded approaches from a range of digital currency providers for the last 12 months but has decided to go with Qoin.
“To be frank, I have found some digital currencies not very user friendly and hard to understand.
“Qoin is user friendly, Australian based, easy to understand and quick to use.
“I think it will prove popular with my customer base.”
Mr Hazouri established his business three years ago and says COVID-19 has enforced the need for business to look at alternatives to cash.
“Cash is no longer king in terms of doing business, especially in Victoria during COVID.
“My customers have come to me with all manner of non-cash payments during COVID and I felt the time was right to look at digital currency.
“The big one for me in choosing Qoin is that it is based in Australia and that means if there is an issue, I can contact a real person on the end of the phone and get it sorted.”
In the last nine months, more than 11,000 Australian small businesses have joined Qoin, the newest digital currency. Built on 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. Global trends indicate that digital currency is the future way to conduct business.
“Supporting small business is the cornerstone of Qoin. The Qoin model stands apart from other digital currencies in that the value of Qoin increases as the merchant ecosystem grows. The more businesses that join the Qoin community, the more everyone benefits, providing a vital boost to local economies.
“Now more than ever, Australian small businesses are looking for innovative ways to sustain cashflow and make the most of their down time. Qoin enables them to do both while offering a payment method to their customers that is fast, secure and virtually contactless.
“Qoin has had huge take up in Australia with more than 11,000 validated merchants joining the Qoin community in the first nine months. With Qoin launching into New Zealand and further global expansion planned in 2021, Qoin is confident that this success can be replicated in other countries.”
