Malaysia is no stranger to cryptocurrency. They are among the top 20 countries most interested in cryptocurrency (Invezz.com). Just a month ago, Luno Malaysia, the leading crypto exchange in Malaysia, surpassed half a million users on their application, gaining a 300% growth in new users during the last quarter of 2020. This pushed the total amount of crypto users in Malaysia to over 1 million people. With increasing crypto ownership, there are also more consumers looking for ways to spend their cryptocurrency online. To prepare the business for this growing demand, Sarawak Harvest, an online fish business, partners with TripleA to accept crypto payments.

Sarawak Harvest is a dedicated online platform that sells home-grown fishes in Sarawak to different parts of Malaysia. “I realize the surging demand for crypto payments when I come across this challenge on a Bitcoin group on Facebook saying that there aren’t enough businesses in Malaysia accepting crypto. We rise to the challenge and integrated TripleA crypto payments gateway, to be the first fish store in Malaysia to accept crypto payments. We may be just a local business, but our team is always at the forefront of technology and prepares ourselves for the future,” said Vincent Chin, owner of Sarawak Harvest.
