This Airline Company Allows You to Pay With Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC)
The US-based private plane rental company TapJets will adopt Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC) within its payment system while abandoning Verge (XVG).
TapJets provides private rental services in the aviation sector. The company is among the few airlines across the world that accept cryptocurrencies.
It all started with a Twitter post published by TapJets on 15th May. The company released a poll in order to ask for opinions from the crypto fans regarding which cryptocurrency would be best suited to become part of the company’s payment system.
Our #cryptocurrency friends asked for their project to be included in our payment methods. Our CEO @EugeneKesselman promised a quick poll from the product team so here it is #XVG vs #XRP vs #LTC what should be our next move #FLYTAPJETS

Over 57,000 people voted in the poll created by TapJets. Ripple became the leader of the survey, with 44% while Litecoin accumulated 35%. “People have voted, and we have heard their feedback. TapJets will proceed to the technical evaluation of Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC),” the company stated.
In continuation, the company is set to evaluate how to proceed with the implementation of the two winning cryptocurrencies. “Some of this activity would depend on how agile development teams of XRP/LTC are to our requests. It is our goal to allow TapJets clients to use these alt-coins on June 1, 2018. We have been in contact with LTC team already and will be reaching out to XRP team on Monday.”
We want to mention that the three cryptocurrencies: Ripple, Litecoin, and Verge were not randomly chosen. The company claimed that it received a lot of requests from the crypto community regarding it.
Even if Verge (XVG) ranks third in the survey, CEO of TapJets Eugene Kesselman wanted to express his opinion about this crypto asset in front of the community: “I want to recognize the Verge (XVG) community. You have a strong following, great feedback, and lots of potentials. You have forced us to think about significant changes to UX so that additional coins can be added in the future without compromising a checkout experience.“
Additionally, the CEO stated that in the near future the company will work on the implementation of new cryptocurrencies, and Verge will certainly be one of them.
