SINGAPORE (PRWEB) March 15, 2018
BlockCypher, the leading blockchain web services and infrastructure provider, today announced a partnership with Payza, an award-winning international online payment provider, reaching over 13 million users in 190 countries. As digital currencies have become the fastest and most economical way of making cross-border payments for people, the demand for multiple types of digital currencies has grown. The partnership allows users to send and receive cryptocurrencies to and from other Payza users, spend it at 100,000 e-commerce retailers, and exchange Dash and other cryptocurrencies to 25 different fiat currencies.
Payza is headquartered in the UK, but primarily serves Asia, Middle East, Europe and South America, with some of its major markets including Venezuela, Nepal, Pakistan, Brazil, Mexico and Haiti. It was founded to provide an alternative method of payment and storage of currency for people who have difficulty accessing bank accounts and traditional financial institutions. Over the past several months, Payza had received significant customer demand to build-in Dash access, particularly for its low fees and focus on helping underbanked communities.
Payza’s Dash integration is made possible through BlockCypher’s blockchain agnostic web services. Over the last year, people have increasingly used Bitcoin alternatives so that non-Bitcoin currencies dominate the market. While Dash is Payza’s latest cryptocurrency addition, Payza will use BlockCypher to add other cryptocurrencies. “BlockCypher’s approach makes it easier for users to interact with several cryptocurrencies through one solution. BlockCypher has a fantastic enterprise level solution for integrating Altcoins,” said Payza CTO, Ali Nizameddine. “With BlockCypher’s support, Payza looks forward to launching several exciting cryptocurrency products this year.” To celebrate the launch, Payza has a promotion for a limited time for users who exchange fiat or Bitcoin into Dash will get an extra 10% of the altcoin when they buy up to 1 Dash, and an extra 5% for each Dash purchased above that amount (up to 5 Dash purchased).
BlockCypher tracks how people are using digital currencies for specific use cases. As BlockCypher enables faster integration for leading blockchains today, BlockCypher a unique view into existing and upcoming blockchains and the use cases they are best suited for. “We are excited to see Payza integrate Dash so quickly using our web services and infrastructure,” said Karen Hsu, Head of Growth at BlockCypher. “Payza leads the digital payments market in providing digital currency options, and we look forward to working with them to integrate additional blockchains in the future.”
