November 3, 2021 — Crypto E-commerce platform Shopping.io is ecstatic to announce it has integrated with Algorand, making the blockchain’s native ALGO currency the newest payment method compatible with our service and enabling all $ALGO holders the ability to purchase items from popular E-commerce sites like Amazon (US, UK, Australia, Brasil, India and more), eBay, Walmart, and Etsy.
To celebrate the integration, those purchasing with $ALGO on Shopping.io will enjoy a 2% discount at checkout (now through November 17, 2021) which may be combined with the up to 10% discount available to current holders of $SPI, Shopping.io’s native rewards token, for a maximum 12% off platform-wide.
Algorand’s open-source blockchain technology is powering the future of finance and accelerating the convergence of traditional and decentralized finance models into a unified system that is inclusive, frictionless, and offers gigantic scalability. The Algorand blockchain has been leveraged by over 700 organizations across the globe, enabling faster and cheaper transactions across sectors including finance, real estate, art, gaming, supply chains, and beyond. Algorand has gained tremendous traction, and with it, the ALGO currency has quickly risen to rank 20th in the world by market cap on Coin Gecko.
“We are very excited to integrate with Algorand and add this popular protocol to our payment methods, allowing us to share the Shopping.io platform with a tremendous community of people,” said Arbel Arif, Shopping.io founder and CEO.
