The feature is available across eight provinces in Canada. 

David Feller, the company’s founder and CEO, noted in the press release that individuals would soon look to add Bitcoin just like “corporations add it to their balance sheets.” He added: 

“Unlike traditional reward programs, bitcoin rewards have the unique characteristic of being an asset class that can rise in value over time – $3,100 invested in bitcoin 5 years ago would be worth over $350,000 today.”

Mogo’s entry into Bitcoin is not new. The company enables buy and sell on its online platform MogoCrypto service and also holds BTC on its balance sheet like MicroStrategy and Tesla.

Earlier, Mogo also offered BTC cashback for Platinum VISA Prepaid Card customers.
