BitPay Surpasses 26,000 Approved Merchants

Almost exactly six months since its announcement of 10,000 merchants, BitPay, world leader in business solutions for Bitcoin digital currency, announced today that it has surpassed 26,000 approved merchants. BitPay provides merchants around the globe with a platform to accept bitcoin payments.

“With BitPay, Central Florida Solar can save the Bitcoin community thousands.”

BitPay’s merchants continue to be increasingly diverse, with merchants expanding around the globe. The news further solidifies the company’s position in the market, while maintaining rapid organic growth supported by the growing Bitcoin economy. Of the company’s newest merchants is Atlanta-based La Casa Del Tobaco.

"Solar power and Bitcoin are actually a synergistic match if you think about it. Offering solar water heaters, photovoltaic panels and solar air conditioning that helps eliminate power bills only puts more operating capital back into the pockets of the Bitcoin community members," Ellsworth Corum, a Central Florida Solar spokesperson stated.

“With BitPay, Central Florida Solar can save the Bitcoin community thousands.”

“I am a local business owner and am always looking for ways to not only save money, but increase sales. BitPay has provided a reliable platform for my customers to pay with Bitcoin and allowed for big savings on transaction fees,” stated Pablo Nunez, Owner of La Casa Del Tobaco in Atlanta, Georgia.

BitPay continues to expand its merchant services and features, providing merchants with a streamlined and reliable way to accept bitcoin, both online and in-person. In the past month, the Atlanta-based company has released Bitcoin payment protocol support and Bitcore, an open source toolkit for developers that interacts with the real Bitcoin network. The company has also opened its Latin American headquarters, located in Argentina, and is focused on driving business adoption of Bitcoin throughout the region.
