Scottish Roofing Company is receiving payments in Cryptocurrency by Pensioners.

Kaeleb Mckay, who runs a roofing company with his father, Cameron, has recently told the British press his business is seeing soaring numbers of customers paying in cryptocurrency. The 20-year-old Scot also said he’s been surprised by the people who use cryptocurrency, with his firm’s crypto customer base including even pensioners.

Kaeleb’s company is a family-owned roofing and building contractor based in Glasgow, Scotland’s most populous city. It operates throughout Central Scotland and the North of England, specializing in commercial and traditional build maintenance and repair works.

ASAP Roofing and Building Ltd started accepting cryptocurrency last year, the Daily record reported, and is now taking several major coins including bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), ethereum (ETH), dogecoin (DOGE), litecoin (LTC), and XRP, according to its website. The young entrepreneur from Wishaw in Lanarkshire commented:

We have been accepting crypto for a while. For a business it is ideal because it gets paid instantly.\

ASAP Roofing’s owner admitted he has been involved in the crypto space for years. “I’ve had a personal interest in trading in cryptocurrency since 2014,” Kaeleb Mckay said, also adding he was “surprised by some of the people who want to pay that way.” He told the publication:

I did a roof repair for about £500 in November for a pensioner in her late 60s in Glasgow and she said she wanted to pay in Bitcoin.

This is not an isolated case as Mckay’s company, which advertises itself as Scotland’s premier roofing contractor, has had other elderly Brits wanting to use cryptocurrency too. “I got another guy who paid £180 in Ethereum for an emergency roof repair in the last few weeks,” he shared.

For the e-commerce startups that are building crypto-focused platforms, this isn’t just about making it easy to buy something using Bitcoin. It’s about delivering true financial inclusion for all — and delivering blockchain technology to millions of people.
