Parify Group has revealed that it is now accepting payment via Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for its services.
This, it claimed, makes it one of the world’s first lighting and shopfitting companies to accept payments of this kind.
Its services and products can now be paid for using BTC, Ethereum, USD Coin, Dai, Bitcoin Cash or LTC.
The company revealed in a statement its belief that cryptocurrency will become an ever more valid form of payment in years to come, hence its decision to be an early adopter of the technology.
It believes that the payment methods reduce the possibility of fraud via blockchain technology.
The statement read: “We have complete faith in the blockchain ecosystem and its inherent transparency. As early adopters, we will continue to watch the decentralised blockchain technology develop over the next few years.
“Covid has bought forward the possibility of the cashless society, and with bank accounts seemingly more vulnerable to hacking and scammers, keeping your funds safe with the use of a hardware ‘crypto wallet’ seems like the obvious choice of many tech savvy businesses and individuals.”
Meanwhile, Scot Walker of Parify Group said: ‘With young entrepreneurs adopting the crypto currency en-masse due to lack of faith in banks, it is an intelligent, strategic development for our businesses to accept it as a method of payment. It’s far easier to swim with the flow than against it.”
