Sheetz Inc. announced it will begin accepting cryptocurrencies as payment both inside the store and at the dispenser.
Cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual currencies that do not have a physical form like paper money. Because they are secured using cryptography, this digital payment form is practically impossible to counterfeit or double-spend. Cryptocurrency also lowers transaction fees incurred by the retailer accepting it.
Sheetz partnered with digital payments network Flexa to help the retail chain accept digital currency.
