Chicago’s Vintage Garage Now Accepts Litecoin
The Venue’s 75+ Businesses & Thousands of Customers Can Now Reap the Benefits of Cryptocurrency
CHICAGO, IL [ July, 9 2018] - Vintage Garage, Chicago’s largest Vintage Market, is announcing today that it now accepts Litecoin as an official form of payment. With thousands of businesses around the world adopting it for its ability to facilitate cheaper, faster and more secure transactions, Vintage Garage is the first public market in Chicago to accept the cryptocurrency.
Started by Melissa Sands in 2012, the Vintage Garage hosts 75 to 100 vendors each month on the 3rd Sunday from May - October. Now in its 7th year, the venue regularly plays host to thousands of people and transactions each day.
"After discovering cryptocurrency in 2015, I quickly found out that it was indeed the best cryptocurrency for payments,” said Melissa Sands, Owner of Vintage Garage Chicago. “Chicago is an innovative city and I wanted to bring that spirit of innovation to the Vintage Garage. Litecoin is easy to accept, cheaper to process, and very secure, which were all important factors in deciding to integrate it. We like to say Litecoin allows us to Buy the Old With the New!"
“We’re always excited when we see real-world use cases of Litecoin adoption,” said Charlie Lee, Creator of Litecoin and Managing Director of the Litecoin Foundation. “Vintage Garage is giving small businesses and customers the ability to experience Litecoin transactions first hand. Nothing illustrates the power of cryptocurrency more clearly than when you actually use it in your day to day life.”
