ThinkTank, in partnership with San Francisco-based Coinbase, will accept payments for web design, marketing, and consulting services with Bitcoin in addition to current payment options. It will also begin offering clients the ability to accept Bitcoin payments through sites built by ThinkTank.
Bitcoin is the first reliable, decentralized digital currency, and it is on the verge of transforming the payments space. Bitcoin allows instant, global peer-to-peer transactions, with no exchange obstacles and minimal processing fees. Now, all of ThinkTank’s customers, who include some of the most technology-savvy people in the Tampa Bay Area, will have access to this fast, easy, and secure payment option.
Up and coming Tampa Bitcoin startup Coinlock (https://www.coinlock.com) was influential in getting ThinkTank started on the road to Bitcoin adoption. ThinkTank’s Head Writer, David Z. Morris, met Coinlock founder Matt Branton while researching Bitcoin for a magazine project. “Matt took me to the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami in January,” says Morris, “And I’ve been fascinated ever since. The benefits are pretty clear.”
For ThinkTank and others accepting Bitcoin payments, those benefits include cutting transaction fees from around 3 percent for credit cards to the 0.5 percent charged by Coinbase. For customers, online payment with Bitcoin is both more secure and less cumbersome than most credit card-based payment methods.
ThinkTank’s payments page (http://www.thinktankconnect.com/payments) hosts its new Bitcoin payment system, which they will also now be able to implement for clients.
ThinkTank’s sister company, SavvyCard, will also accept Bitcoin transactions. SavvyCard (http://www.savvycard.com) is one of the most exciting start-ups in Tampa Bay, and has raised more than $1.5 million in capital in the last six months to support its mobile content system.
