Bitcoinizing Lithuania: All you should know about crypto in Vilnius
Today cryptocurrency is becoming increasingly popular. It is gradually winning the confidence of the public. There is no coincidence. All cryptocurrencies are based on the same unique technology with great potential called BLOCKCHAIN.
Decentralization, transparency, reliability, invariability — key blockchain features.
About 40 million people own cryptocurrency. 55% of them are open to use Bitcoin for everyday transactions.
The only problem is: there is almost no way for people to spend it.
Not every merchant is ready to accept Bitcoin for goods and services. Most of them are afraid to lose money because of the volatility rate. We’ve found a solution. We convert cryptocurrency to merchant’s base currency at the current rate of the moment of a payment.
CopPay is a blockchain platform for cryptocurrency payments. The company was founded in Vilnius, Lithuania in 2017.
- to make cryptocurrency payments simpler than credit cards;
- to develop supranational payment infrastructure;
- to spread the knowledge about blockchain technology.
CopPay allows merchant to accept cryptocurrency and receive EUR, GBP, USD eliminating volatility risks. The service is absolutely free with 0% transaction fee for merchants.
CopPay designed for:
- SMALL AND MEDIUM BUSINESSES
- RETAIL NETWORKS
Right now BUYER can pay with 8 different types of cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, Dash, NEM, Steem, Steem Dollars. The list of tokens is constantly updated.
Let’s consider the example for easy understanding the CopPay gate working process:
- A buyer wants to buy a cake which costs €70 and pay for it with Bitcoin (BTC).
- Merchant create an order in CopPay gate* and let the buyer to scan QR-code via his cryptocurrency wallet.
- After successful transaction confirmation** the buyer receives the cake and merchant receive €70 on his bank account within the next 1–2 banking days.
* To receive payments and create orders in CopPay service merchant should be registered and verified.
** Transaction confirmation time depends on the fee defined by buyer.
