Bitcoin and crypto adoption has been one of the main goals that the crypto industry has set. There have been a lot of moves made in this direction, and they continue.
Now, it’s been just reported that the insurance giant AXA Switzerland now allows customers to pay premiums in bitcoin.
The news was announced on Thursday, and AXA Switzerland said the BTC payment option is available for all its non-life products. Life insurance products do not support the option for “regulatory reasons.”
“This is AXA’s response to growing demand from its customers for alternative payment solutions, with new technologies playing an ever-greater role,” said Claudia Bienentreu, head of open innovation at AXA Switzerland.
The BlockCrypto online publication noted that “AXA holds no bitcoins on its balance sheet,” said the company.
It’s also important to note that AXA doesn’t charge any fee for using the BTC payment option, but Bitcoin Suisse charges a 1.75% commission to cover currency exchange and transaction fee costs.
