According to technology journalist Brian Karlovsky, LegalVision has become Australia’s first legal service provider to allow customers to pay for legal services with Bitcoin.
LegalVision is probably also the first legal directory worldwide to allow payment using the digital currency.
Bitcoin was introduced in 2009, and uses cryptography to control the creation and transfer of money.
LegalVision chief executive Lachlan McKnight (pictured below) was quoted in the article, saying:
LegalVision is a progressive and innovative business, we appeal to a new generation of business owners who see the cost benefits of getting all their legal work done online. Bitcoin is just the natural evolution of that thinking and the currency could be the future of online payment systems.”
