Canada’s Largest Classified Site Is Expanding Further into the Cryptoverse

Vancouver, CA: LeoList – the largest adult classified site in Canada, has announced an increase in its level of crypto-adoption: nearly 60% of all customer purchases since May 2019 were made in crypto.

Following difficulties with their payment processor, LeoList recently announced a change of ownership and a series of community-focused initiatives.

Since making this announcement, LeoList has re-established its credit card processor and enabled cryptocurrency and Flexepin payments on its platform. Users can now discreetly purchase anything from the site with the help of cryptocurrencies and Flexepin.

This QR code can be taken to a local Bitcoin ATM, top up as much as you wish and spend until your heart’s content. Leolist explains how to use cryptocurrencies on their website in detail here.

Advertisers are encouraged to add “BTC accepted”, or a similar phrase, to their adverts, allowing purchasers to have a clear view of which merchants take cryptocurrencies as payment.
