Best Bitcoin Card for Australia
The adaptation of crypto currencies is progressing daily, but trust must be further strengthened for it to become more widespread worldwide. In Australia, a crypto exchange and a billing platform have joined forces to enable Australians to pay any type of bill with Bitcoin and other crypto currencies.
The Crypto Currency Exchange Cointree and the Gobbill billing platform will work together to enable Australians to pay everyday bills with crypto currencies such as Bitcoin. New business opportunities are also expected to emerge.
Australians can now pay any invoice (within the country) with Bitcoin and selected Altcoins, regardless of whether the billing company accepts crypto currencies or not. The billion platform Gobbill will accept crypto currencies as means of payment and convert the corresponding equivalent directly into Fiat money and then forward it to the companies.
This additional option does not replace alternative payment methods, such as credit cards or normal payment by bank transfer, but has been implemented as an additional option. In order to pay the next water bill with Bitcoin, for example, the user must have a wallet at Cointree.com and have sufficient credit to pay the bill at the current Bitcoin rate.
Cointree CEO, Shane Stevonson explains that the company is adapting to the future needs of its customers:
We are excited to partner with Gobbill. This is a great opportunity for both companies to leverage our strengths and enable Australians to pay their daily bills with their choice of digital currencies such as Bitcoin.
Gobbill is on an expansion course, expanding its circle of new partners to attract future investors on an international level. If this new payment solution meets with approval in Australia, the company does not rule out expansion into other countries.
The state of Australia, officially Commonwealth of Australia, is located in the southern hemisphere of the earth (down under). Australia is the sixth largest country in the world and occupies the main land mass of the continent Australia and Oceania. The state also includes the island of Tasmania and a few other islands in the Pacific. Australia also claims some regions in the Antarctic. Together with New Zealand and the island states it is counted as Oceania. The capital is Canberra, big metropolises are Sydney and Melbourne.
The approximately 22 million inhabitants are mainly spread over the coastal regions, where most of the cities are located. In the interior there are large areas that are completely uninhabited and sparsely populated regions. Around 500,000 people call themselves Aborigines or have such roots. The art and culture of the indigenous peoples has increasingly developed into a tourist attraction in recent decades.
The extent of Australia is enormous: in north-south direction about 3,700 km, in west-east direction about 4,000 km. The climatic conditions, the landscapes, fauna and flora and of course the travel times are correspondingly diverse. The Australian continent, which has been separated from the other continents by oceans for around 50 million years, has been able to develop its own great biodiversity of plants and animals. Australia’s marsupials are an example of this isolated development. Of the approximately 20,000 native plant species in Australia, about 85 % can be found exclusively on this continent.
North: Tropical climate with summer monsoon rains. East: Passat rain areas with up to 2.000mm precipitation per year. South: Rainfall in all seasons, but predominantly winter rainfall areas, in the southeast with up to 1,500mm per year. West and Central Australia: Very dry and hot areas with over 38°C on 160 days a year.
Origin of the name Australia was discovered as the last continent in the 17th century by Europeans. Already centuries before however it had been assumed that there must be a continent in the south a Terra Australis. The name Australia was derived from this Latin expression which means South Country. The British explorer Matthew Flinders (1774-1814) was the first to circumnavigate the continent and map the coastline. In his publications he introduced the term Australia.
