Singapore’s Leading Company Registration Service Announces Bitcoin Acceptance

Do you have a few Bitcoins burning a hole in your pocket? Actually, you won’t find Bitcoins in anyone’s pocket. The emerging form of currency is entirely virtual.

The truth is, most people don’t know two bits about bitcoins.

Sir Richard Branson does. In fact, if you want to jump aboard a Virgin Galactic space flight, you’re welcome to cover your tab with bitcoins. The online travel firm CheapAir takes bitcoins as well.

Being that bitcoin is catching on in the travel business, you might book a flight to Singapore where Rikvin, one of the nation’s leading company registration specialists, gladly accepts bitcoin payments. Rikvin is the first company to do so.

Commenting on it, Mr. Satish Bakhda, Chief Operations Officer at Rikvin said,

“I have noticed it’s become part of the conversation for progressive businesses doing business in Singapore and the region.”

“Count us in,” said Mr. Bakhda.

“Our company is all about helping to make it easy to bring your business to Singapore, where business is thriving from an influx of U.S-based companies and companies all over the world. So sure, if you have Bitcoins, let’s do business.”


Bitcoin emerged in 2009 as a digital currency, meaning it isn’t issued or regulated by a government. Though the practice of trading in bitcoin is in the early stages, today thousands of merchants accept Bitcoin payments.

Users of Bitcoin exchanges buy and sell bitcoins using local currencies. Trades actually impact the bitcoin economy, causing bitcoin value to fluctuate. Some see bitcoin as the future of financial exchanges.


CoinDesk, a leader in digital currency, reported The Monetary Authority of Singapore is 100% open to bitcoin commerce and believes the individual business should be free to set its own policies. The authority will not interfere with bitcoin adoption.

David Moskowitz, founder of Coin Republic, a company which facilitates bitcoin exchange, hopes Singapore businesses will embrace bitcoin as an alternative to traditional wire transfers. He points out they’ll saving a big pocket full of change by doing so.
