Mortgage Payments with Crypto
Founded in 2008, Matrix Mortgage Global enables customers to receive financing on housing that has carried out over $1.5 billion in mortgage originations. The company has “championed alternative lending” since its inception, and its latest announcement could be regarded as another step in that direction.
Through a partnership with the US-based crypto service provider BitPay, Matrix Mortgage Global will enable all customers to pay for goods and services with some of the most popular crypto assets. Namely, those Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Ethereum, and several dollar-pegged stablecoins. However, the announcement didn’t specify which stablecoins the firm will implement.
The introduction of digital assets aims to expand the company into international markets where “accepting credit cards is not practical.” Furthermore, the addition will increase payment transparency, speed, and efficiency, while reducing high fees.
Matrix Mortgage Global’s initiative works in line with the Canada Revenue Agency’s views saying that crypto assets “can be used to pay for goods and services and shall be treated as a barter transaction.”
“As an innovator in the mortgage industry, we decided to accept cryptocurrency to better align ourselves with the shift towards the global adoption of digital currency. Blockchain technology with the use of smart contracts is going to change the way mortgages are processed.” – commented MMG Founder Shawn Allen.
