“With the rapid acceptance on a consumer level of cryptocurrency we felt that we needed to streamline the ability for owners to realize more utility from their holdings. As a crypto holder myself I find it often cumbersome to use in the broader market. By joining with Coinbase we felt this would be the broadest representation for our customers, and provide the best experience possible,” said Shawn Gambel, President of Troll and Toad. “If crypto is ever to truly take off, the ease of use and becoming widely accepted will be integral, we are doing our part to help that along.”

Through Coinbase Commerce, customers can use Bitcoin, Ethereum, DAI, Bitcoin Cash USD Coin and Litecoin at checkout. The gaming retailer anticipates to start accepting cryptocurrency by the fourth quarter of 2021.
