BitPay announced that it will soon add the ability to settle with Ethereum to its payment solution..
The BitPay product allows you to make settlements using fiat and cryptocurrencies in more than 200 countries around the world. Since 2011, the service has processed $ 2.8 billion worth of crypto payments.
BitPay CEO Stephen Para said that the company regularly evaluates potential candidates for addition to the list of supported assets and now, in addition to bitcoin, bitcoin cash and several stablecoins, clients will be able to work with ethereum..
According to him, the choice is due to the popularity of ether, which is used by thousands of companies in a variety of real-world applications and has fairly good support..
Vitalik Buterin, co-founder and creator of Ethereum, said that this solution will open up a lot of opportunities to expand the platform’s ecosystem..
While the Ethereum team is working to improve the platform, Bitcoin Cash representatives are actively promoting coins. Last week head of the exchange division of Bitcoin.com said it was in talks with a regulated exchange to launch futures contracts on VSN in the near future, and plans to discuss this issue with CME Group.
