Further, Dish announced on Thursday that the customers can make manual payments in Bitcoin beginning in the third quarter of the year.
“We don’t know what the demand will be, exactly,” Bernie Han, Dish’s chief operating officer, said in an interview on Thursday. “It might be tiny. It might be bigger than tiny. It’s probably growing.”
