In other cryptocurrency news, United Wholesale Mortgage CEO Mat Ishbia discussed his plans to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment as soon as the third quarter on FOX Business’ “Varney & Co.” Wednesday, noting that the move won’t create added risk for the company.
We’re just giving options,” Ishbia told host Stuart Varney.
The mortgage lender first announced its plans to accept cryptocurrency for mortgage loans last week during the company’s earnings call, according to Bitcoin.com.
