The partnership will see Alpha referring interested clients to Snapcard, with joint plans to work closely in educating merchants about Bitcoin and how it works.

“We pride ourselves in customer service and understand that with a new payment method like Bitcoin, it’s important to stay involved in the educational process,” noted Michael Dunworth, CEO of Snapcard,

“Alpha is known for its innovative initiatives in the payment space -- with this partnership, we’re looking forward to bringing a beautiful line of Bitcoin products to Alpha’s clients.”

AlphaHub merchants will have the opportunity to accept Bitcoin payments with Snapcard’s “simple pricing of 0.5% per transaction”, with no monthly fees or setup fees.
