Do You Allow Crypto Payments?

Cryptocurrency has become a mainstream market, with individuals and major organizations alike building portfolios of various cryptocurrencies. This has led to Bitcoin and Ethereum attaining a combined market cap of more than $1 trillion at the time of publishing.

In a move solidifying its position as an innovator in the Handshake space, Namecheap has acquired Namebase, a leading Handshake name registry and marketplace.

Some of my first domain sales were with btc last year, in some cases, I prefer it.
I would be open for receiving payment for domains in crypto currency if going through a secure escrow service.
