08:41BitPay launches mass crypto payments for businesses
BitPay Send allows businesses to issue mass crypto payments around the world without having to hold any crypto themselves.
Crypto payment services provider BitPay has launched BitPay Send, a new blockchain-powered mass payout platform for businesses.
BitPay Send allows organizations who do not want to handle or own crypto themselves to process crypto payments en masse. It can be used to complete payroll payments, pay contractors or affiliates, or process customer cashback and rewards programs. Available in 225 countries recipients ju need to pass KYC and have a crypto wallet.
BitPay claims the platform cuts processing times from days to minutes.
The service has already been adopted by advertising platform AdGate Media in order to pay affiliates around the world. AdGate President Dan Sapozhnikov explained that many of their affiliates are located outside of North America and Europe where access to bank accounts can be difficult and so they want “to be paid in Bitcoin.” But he said that the firm “did not want to buy and hold crypto”, adding:
BitPay CEO Stephen Pair said the ease of sending global transactions via crypto is a big attraction for businesses:
BitPay is a U.S. based company that launched in 2011. It processed almost 100,000 transactions per month in 2020, with the majority of that being in Bitcoin (BTC). The firm is backed by multiple investment firms including Founders Fund, Virgin Group, Index Ventures, and Aquiline Technology Growth, having raised more than $70 million in funding.
