Accepting Bitcoin is a natural decision that complements the progressive nature of our business.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 22, 2014
My Second Home Pet Resort, a pet boarding, grooming, daycare and retail facility based outside Nashville, TN, is the first pet care service provider in the United States to start accepting Bitcoin for non-veterinary care. Recognized as one of the premier pet care providers in the nation, the company joins only a small group of businesses in all of the greater Nashville area that accepts the emerging digital currency.
While Bitcoin was once followed only by tech savvy individuals, libertarians and other who treasured their privacy, recent mass adoption has brought Bitcoin to the mainstream. Users purchase the digital currency and load their balance into a virtual wallet. This allows individuals to perform transactions without using their credit card information or providing sensitive information.
Bitcoins are also considered immune to counterfeiting and are only created through a complex process called “mining.” The combined computing power attributed to mining is now seen to be greater than all other computing power in the world.
“Similar to the fashion in which we commit ourselves to outstanding and individualized care for all of our four legged guests, My Second Home wants to make sure that the owner’s experience, at every level, is as convenient and flexible as possible,” Chris Starko, Director of Marketing, noted. “Accepting Bitcoin is a natural decision that complements the progressive nature of our business.”
At check-out, customers can use their smart phones to scan a QR code or enter a URL that will direct them to a payment page provided by Bitpay, one of the many providers of Bitcoin processing as well as virtual wallet hosting.
“The streamlined process takes only a minute, allowing for our customers to quickly pick up their pets and make their way home from what is often a long journey or car ride,” Chris noted.
The acceptance of Bitcoin as a form of currency has been adopted by many large organizations in recent months. Utah based retail giant Overstock.com, as well as the professional sports organization the Sacramento Kings, are two of the notable names that have embraced the crypto-currency. My Second Home joins this elite group and brings Bitcoin into the ever expanding pet care industry.
My Second Home Pet Resort was established in 2004 by Dan Starko, former founder and President of Bulwark Protective Apparel. The company has served over 32,000 clients throughout the greater Nashville area and provides luxury pet boarding, grooming, and daycare services. In recent years, the company has greatly expanded its outreach to community rescues, shelters, and organizations, all while maintaining its commitment to top notch pet care services.
