“Caribbean people and businesses need access to digital payments, just like everywhere else in the world,” said Oliver Gale, chief financial officer of bi.tt.

“In delivering a digital currency service we selected the proven AlphaPoint Exchange platform which is designed from the ground up to deliver extreme uptime, robustness, extensibility and manageability.”

“With the bi.tt Caribbean Digital Exchange there is little need for traditional electronic payment providers like PayPal in the region,” he continued.

“Demand for digital currency investments is growing exponentially in the region and bi.tt is the first to fulfill this demand using AlphaPoint’s Exchange platform,” said Rick “Henri” Chan, COO of AlphaPoint.
