Software developer Perfectial has said it will enable payments in the near future. Bitcoin, Ether and Litecoin will all be accepted as payment from its clients.
The company’s chief technology officer and co-founder Ivan Kohut spoke about the move:
Cryptocurrency is the future of payments, and by introducing this modern payment option, we aim to make our services more comfortable and accessible; Our primal goals have always been customer convenience and satisfaction. So we’ve decided to adopt crypto payment alternative.
The new payment method is expected to be a more suitable option for the company’s clients, as they receive funding with crypto assets and they will now be able to avoid making conversions.
Cryptocurrencies are borderless money that allows making our services reachable. On top of that, they help to circumvent certain limitations that conventional payment systems like PayPal have.
According to Kohut, accepting crypto payments was a natural step, since the company “is actively engaged in researching and adopting the latest technology trends”.
The company has decided to invest in blockchain, predicting that the technology will soon be adopted by many large financial institutions. Many large businesses are currently considering blockchain, and nearly two-thirds of the world’s top corporations are expected to integrate them into their systems before the end of 2018.
SEC expected to crack down on ICOs
The company also said they expect the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commision to crack down on Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). This would probably result in a decline in their popularity and ICOs may then evolve into Initial Public Offerings.
Many merchants are accepting crypto payments nowadays and the number is constantly increasing. One of the largest Azeri hotel booking platforms, Hotels24, already accepts payments in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum Classic and Dash, and they have recently announced plans to add Bitcoin Gold to the list.
