Alza introduces a payment by Litecoin

Prague, February 5, 2018 - Alza today introduced another cryptomite within its e-shop, this time Litecoin (LTC). Payments will be available at e-shops,,,, and Customers can now exchange this currency (as well as BTC) in ATM’s situated in Prague and Bratislava. In addition to LTC, DASH exchange is also available. The ability to pay for goods using Dash will be added at a later date. 

Compared to BTC, Litecoin's network charges are lower, and transactions are faster (seconds to minutes). The advantage of cryptography is also that this online payment method can be performed without the user having a current online bank account. In addition to LTC reimbursement on the web, customers can use the ATM's in Prague and Bratislava, where they can also buy Litecoins and Dash cryptographies in addition to Bitcoin. The ATM machines are operated by the contractual partner of General Bytes ltd

"The number of orders paid using Bitcoin is growing on Alza. Since implementation, it's sales are in the tens of millions, and there have been thousands of orders. To a large extent, BTC is used to purchase cryptomimeter mining components. We have had steady interest in the hardware wallets as well, such as the popular TREZOR from the Czech company SatoshiLabs. We are now expecting a similar development for Litecoin", said Jan Sadílek, Alza, Internet Marketing Manager.

Litecoin is younger than Bitcoin, introduced in 2011. But it is an alternative digital cryptomite based on BTC. An important feature of Litecoin is its full decentralisation - no one can influence the currency in any way, control cash flows or cause inflation.

Even Dash has the advantage of low fees and instant payments without waiting for network confirmation. According to current trends, this is a great investment opportunity.

All processes are resolved internally only.
