    I decided to keep it short and sweet:

    Congratulations on going Crypto
    ignition75 to bizdev (less than one minute ago) show details

    To whom it may concern,

    Firstly I would like to congratulate you on being one of the more progressive companies on the internet by accepting crypto currencies such as Litecoin and Dogecoin.

    Perhaps I could take this opportunity to introduce you to the first anonymous digital currency, Darkcoin.

    It's structure is similar to that of Bitcoin and Litecoin, therefore adoption will be just as easy, however it's got one redeeming feature that other currencies do not have, full anonymity.

    If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to check out the website www.darkcoin.io for further information.

    If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Have a wonderful day.

    CheapAir Now Accepts Litecoin and Dogecoin for Flight Bookings
    Stan Higgins | Published on September 3, 2014 at 23:45 BST

    CheapAir.com has announced that it will now accept dogecoin and litecoin as payment for flight and railway bookings.

    • The online travel booking website began accepting bitcoin for flight bookings in November, and subsequently expanded its bitcoin payment service to include hotel and railway bookings. Since adding bitcoin as a payment option, CheapAir has seen a positive response from its customers, recently announcing that it had passed $1.5m in total bitcoin sales.

      Speaking to CoinDesk, CEO Jeff Klee said that the decision was encouraged by grassroots support from its customer base, noting that the same demographics that made its bitcoin integration a success inspired the company’s latest move in the digital currency space.

      Klee explained:

      “We’ve had some success with bitcoin, we’ve gotten some new customers there – enthusiastic customers. We’ve gotten a great response since we began accepting [bitcoin], and we had some requests for dogecoin and litecoin. We figured why not?”

      Notably, GoCoin will serve as the company’s altcoin payments processor, enabling the company to accept litecoin and dogecoin in addition to bitcoin. CheapAir will continue to accept bitcoin through its existing partnership with Coinbase.

      Altcoin strategy
      Klee told CoinDesk that CheapAir will utilize the same deployment strategy for dogecoin and litecoin as it did for bitcoin. This means offering altcoin support for plane and train ticket purchases and, pending on the success of the initiative, expanding from there.

      Klee stated:

      “It’s the same pattern we went through with bitcoin. We launched it first for flights, and, assuming that goes well, we’ll roll out [altcoin support] for hotels pretty quickly, too.”

      CheapAir is also extending its stable price guarantee to dogecoin and litecoin customers, offering $100 – in dollars – to those who see the price of a fare fall after they buy a ticket.

      Klee said that the company is working to streamline its existing system for this service, adding that it helps customers who may see some volatility in the value of their coins.

    I forgot to mention DRK's volume, oh well, it will get better with each revision. I'll make a template...

    They are using GoCoin, so you have to reach out to GoCoin to add DRK instead of CheapAir telling them to use multiple payment processors :)
