I think that we will look back at the advent of distributed blockchain technology as one of the most revolutionary advances since the internet, and the first area in which that disruption is already taking hold is around financial stores of value and payments. We are excited to be partnering with the BitPay team who were on the front edge of that movement in 2011 and continue to lead the charge towards increasing adoption and ease of use of Bitcoin and other crypto currencies.

BitPay cryptocurrency processing will add support for Ethereum in the coming weeks. Merchants will be able to accept a coin as payment, and users can store it in their wallet.

BitPay is consistently at the forefront of using cryptocurrency to solve real-world problems and offer our global customers the best options to accept and pay with multiple blockchain assets. As one of the largest crypto currencies by market cap and one used by thousands of companies, Ethereum is the next logical choice.
