The partnership gives 55,000 active UniPAY users the option to activate a new cryptocurrency account, enabling users to send and receive Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and to convert between local currency and digital currency.
As one of the largest payment service providers in Georgia processing payments for local mobile carriers, internet service providers, airlines, utilities companies, and gaming sites, UniPAY will also start offering Bitcoin as a payment method to merchant partners.
“With this partnership, UniPAY users can now pay for goods and services at more than 100,000 e-commerce sites that accept Bitcoin around the world,” said Jack Jia, Head of International Growth at Snapcard. “This is a very exciting use case for Bitcoin, to help citizens of a small developing country to gain access to the global economy.”
“Right now, visitors cannot always use their international cards to pay for goods and services in Georgia-- he Bitcoin option will help break down those frictions and barriers,“ said Koba Kurdadze, CEO of UniPAY. “We are very happy to have partnered with Snapcard to launch this exciting new product for our users and merchants.”
With 148,000 registered wallet users, UniPAY will initially turn on the Bitcoin option for 55,000 fully verified members.
