No, Litecoin is not being accepted pay utility bills in North Dakota. It’s in ONE city (Williston) of North Dakota, with a population of 27000 people.

There’s a post up on the frongpage claiming “Litecoin is now being accepted to pay utility bills in North Dakota”. The title makes it sound like the State of North Dakota, in it’s entirety, is now accepting Litecoin as payment for utility bills (or, in other words, that you can pay for utility bills anywhere in North Dakota) . This **couldn’t** be farther from the truth.

​

* [The very article linked on the post has a different headline, where it clearly states it’s for the before mentioned city of Williston.](https://thecurrencyanalytics.com/altcoins/litecoin-ltc-is-now-accepted-to-pay-utility-bills-city-of-williston-north-dakota-26775.php)
* I quote from [another article](https://www.valleynewslive.com/2021/05/14/city-of-williston-becomes-first-municipality-in-the-state-to-accept-cryptocurrency-for-utility-bills/): *WILLISTON, N.D. – Through a service called “Bitpay,” residents of the city of Williston will be able to use cryptocurrency to pay their utility bills.*
* Also it’s very suspect to me that “Litecoin” is in the spotlight for the original post. I looked up and they’rer not discriminating against other cryptos or specifically accepting Litecoin.

​

Conclusion: You can use cryptocurrency for utility bills in a very small city of North Dakota, named Williston, with 27000 people. That’s all. Claiming “it’s being accepted in North Dakota” is stretching, and giving Litecoin the sole spotlight is very biased. I wonder what percentage of those 27000 people will actually use crypto to pay for utility bills. The number is probably very small.

Let’s be better 🙂

  1. It says “Williston” in the link on my post. Lol I just didn’t think a long title would be fitting. So I left out the city. 🤷🏽‍♂️ Either way ND is getting some exposure. So just be calm and hodl

  2. Hmm, so “Bitcoin Cash is now accepted to pay utility bills in North Dakota” would be equally (in)accurate. Somehow I don’t think that would go over as well.

  3. it’s technically an accurate title. it is accepted in North Dakota. it doesn’t say “accepted in all of north Dakota” so you are/were just assuming it meant all?

  4. “The title makes it sound like the State of North Dakota, in it’s entirety, is now accepting Litecoin as payment for utility bills.”

    No it doesn’t. No state runs a statewide utility service. No one will think what you accuse them of.

  5. [the post](https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/ndnzg9/lite_coin_is_now_accepted_to_pay_utility_bills_in/) you’re referring to literally crossposted it from r/litecoin which has the title ”Litecoin (LTC) Is Now Accepted To Pay Utility Bills City of Williston North Dakota” so I don’t know what you’re complaining about. If you just looked at the original post you would have seen that it isn’t accepted in whole North Dakota so this entire post is pointless.

  6. Let’s be real you may as run the headline as “North Dakota Accepts LTC” cause the city is like 27,000 people which is like half the population there anyway

  7. Original Post: “Lite coin is now accepted to pay utility bills in North Dakota” – technically true but not very precise because even though it never says that North Dakota is accepting these payments, many foolish people will make that assumption without reading the article which gives the details.

    Your headline: “No, Litecoin is not being accepted pay utility bills in North Dakota.” is blatantly false because there are people in N. Dakota that can pay utility bills with Litecoin – just not all of them which the original post never actually said. Be better. 🙂

  8. I’m sure they will do just fine to accept ltc. I’m sorry the Bank of England isn’t trading mineral rights for em yet but it’s just a money order

What do you think?
