An online accounting software for the small business, Xero, adds Bitcoin-powered payments via Veem startup.

As reported by coindesk.com, Xero users are now able to send payments via the blockchain. The new feature is provided by the Bitcoin-powered global payments startup Veem, which revealed its integration with the online accounting service in a statement provided to coindesk.com.

Connecting Veem with Xero simplifies international payments even further by eliminating double entries and simplifying reconciliation.

As reported, this feature will also enable users to set up automatic payments, as well as see details on currencies and exchange rates.

Following the trial court of the city of Thessaloniki, the Greek Areopagus decided to extradite Alexander Vinnik, suspected of laundering $ 4 billion through the BTC-e cryptocurrency exchange, to France. Thus, the appeal of Russian lawyers was rejected, reports TASS referring to the chairman of the court Angelique Aliferopoul.

After the announcement of the verdict, Alexander Vinnik declared that he would continue the hunger strike against the arbitrary rule of the Greek authorities, which began in mid-November.

I have been starving for 24 days. Yesterday I was weighed; according to the documents, I lost 8 kg. But they did not immediately begin to weigh me, only on the third day. So I lost 9 kg. If I'll be extradited to Moscow, I will stop starving.
