The technology provider Avnet, on the Fortune 500 list, announced support for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment options. The company from Phoenix, Arizona realized this opportunity with the support of BitPay processing service.
We’re working with BitPay to facilitate secure blockchain payments for all types of customers so they can focus on developing their products, not how to pay for them. Whether it’s Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash, we can handle it.
Vice president of demand creation, Avnet
The company’s statement also says that it cooperates with the Bitcoin.com portal regarding “creating a new hardware wallet suitable for storing cryptocurrencies and providing the highest level of transaction security.”
In January of this year, the non-profit organization Wikimedia Foundation, managing the free encyclopedia Wikipedia, entered into a partnership with BitPay to receive donations in Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.
