netTALK will be one of the first companies in the telecommunications industry to accept crypto payments.
Miami, FL, June 28 2018 – netTALK, a company on a mission to reinvent the landline telephone, today announces that it will be accepting cryptocurrency for it’s international calling services. This includes Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin, making netTALK one of the first companies in their industry to accept cryptocurrency.
netTALK aims to leverage the latest technologies to give mobile consumers a greater freedom of choice. The company offers affordable home and on-the-go digital phone services, replacing landline telephones with ultra-low cost digital alternatives, all of which make it easy to enjoy clear quality calls with friends and family.
Its latest device, ezLINQ, a VoIP ATA and mini-WiFi router combined into one compact device, empowers users to make crystal clear calls over the internet using any standard handset phone.
The Crypto Payment Feature will launch on all netTALK products and services, including the new ezLINQ device, 4G LTE wireless service and netTALK’s Smartphone App – currently available for Android and iOS.
Users can set up an account online via netTALK’s CONNECT portal here, and buy TALK credits easily with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin. Once the netTALK CONNECT – TALK app has been downloaded, users will be able to see their TALK credit balance and use them to call landlines and mobile phones worldwide, at the best rates.
With the cryptocurrency market growing exponentially, more industries are turning towards Bitcoin and other cryptos to ease and improve payment transactions. The telecommunication industry, however, has been slow to adopt crypto payments. The launch of netTALK’s Crypto Payment Feature will, therefore, be the first in the industry to serve the crypto community, expanding netTALK’s VoIP services to new audiences around the world.
Nick Kyriakides, co-founder and COO at netTALK says:
“We believe in the crypto economy and blockchain technologies. This is just the first phase in a series of initiatives to integrate VoIP technology with cryptocurrency and blockchain platforms”
“As part of this initiative we will also be creating a new crypto team at netTALK, focusing on implementing a broad range of products and services based on blockchain technology.”
netTALK is the landline, reinvented. Founded in 2008 by Anastasios “Takis” Kyriakides, netTALK has the goal of leveraging the latest advances in technology to give mobile consumers a greater freedom of choice. At netTALK we believe everyone should have access to super simple and affordable home and on-the-go digital phone service.

The Future is Blockchain: Untraceable brings back the Blockchain Futurist Conference
Blockchain evangelist, Tracy Leparulo of Untraceable, brings back the largest and most talked about Blockchain Futurist Conference in Canada for its second year.
Last year’s conference was attended by over 2,300 attendees from around the world discussing the future of technology including blockchain, artificial intelligence, and other emerging disruptive technologies.
It featured leading executives, entrepreneurs, government officials, and prominent blockchain vanguards. Speakers included: Larry King [GEAR Blockchain], Charles Hoskinson [Co-founder of Ethereum], Anthony Di Iorio, [CEO of Decentral & Co-founder of Ethereum], and Roger Ver [CEO of Bitcoin.com]. Notable attendees included Bruce Croxon, former Dragon of Dragon’s Den and businessman, Stan Bharti.
According to Alexia Hefti, Deloitte’s Global Blockchain Leader, Indirect Tax:
“Futurist is Canada’s leading blockchain conference and was one of 2018’s most immersive and engaging blockchain conferences globally. Attending Futurist will expose you to many of the world’s leading authorities on blockchain and will give you access to the most cutting-edge research on developments in the technology. I have no doubt that 2019 will exceed the successes of Futurist 2018.”
Untraceable’s mission is to help tokenize the world by tokenizing the Futurist conference. The Blockchain Futurist Conference is one of the first and only blockchain conferences to incorporate token experiences. It provides attendees an experience of what the world will look in a future with blockchain technology, where goods and services can be purchased with digital money in the form of tokens and cryptocurrencies.
Attendees will have the opportunity to get tokens or cryptocurrencies free of charge and use them to purchase various items at the conference. Last year’s conference featured Bunz, which permitted conference participants to buy their lunch from food trucks or purchase items from their marketplace using $50 worth of BTZ tokens downloadable from the Bunz app. Bunz will be returning again this year. Participants will have the opportunity to get over $100 in cryptocurrency, like last year, and experience a truly crypto-immersive world.
Bitcoin ATM machines will be available on site for anyone that wants to purchase cryptocurrency. This year’s conference has a great lineup of speakers, experiences, panels, and workshops including:
