AT & T is hanging today, but for an unusual reason. The carrier is now the first in the United States to accept cryptocurrency payments. It's good news for Bitcoiners and not very important for everyone else.

AT&T says it has customers who use cryptocurrency and it is gratifying to let them pay bills with it. This would not have been surprising 18 months ago when the crypt value was skyrocketing, but it is a bit more unusual now.

AT&T has collaborated with Bitpay for encryption payments. So, AT&T users will probably need a Bitpay wallet with some crypto in it.
