While buying and selling cryptos is becoming increasingly mainstream, the opportunities to spend virtual currencies are somewhat limited in comparison due to its volatility. Blue Box wants to allow customers to convert these digital assets into treasures that are offered at their auctions. The addition of these currencies being accepted it also allows their current customer base to explore diversifying their portfolio with cryptocurrency.
A number of auction houses have begun welcoming cryptocurrencies for big-ticket items, which have included paintings and NFTs -- the blockchain-backed tokens increasingly used to transfer ownership of digital artworks and collectibles.
Blue Box Auction Gallery went through an extensive verification process and legal checks to assure that the process of using digital assets in their sales was as smooth as by paying in US dollars. With the help of BitPay, Blue Box is able to bridge the gap in crypto acceptance and spending.
