Why you should take payments in Bitcoin/Altcoins
These unconventional payment options are not only faster, easier and potentially a better investment but also may allow you to acquire another niche in your market. Although it may still seem highly unnecessary, Bitcoin is currency the fifth largest currency in the world. Broadly speaking, the benefits of blockchain technology include:
- Cheaper Transactions: Many currencies offer vastly cheaper transaction costs to third parties between you and your customer (such as PayPal or major banks)
- Lower Risk: The blockchain of the Bitcoin network allows you to accept payments without worrying about fraud or chargebacks because all payments are protected end-to-end and mean your money is safe once received.
- Less Regulation: There are even many benefits to these payment options that many people are not aware of. In many sectors, such as gambling, the same laws don’t apply to cryptocurrency as they do it GBP. This is also the case in investments and some charity based payments. Because security is managed by the blockchain, there’s also no lengthy compliance protocol for your development. Meaning no PCI compliance or security checks.
- Get Noticed: This technology is new and exciting. Be among the first in your industry to capitalise on it and receive the recognition that comes with that.
