Perseus Telecom, a leading provider of high-speed global connectivity, High Precision Time and market-to-market networks announced today the virtual currency called Bitcoin may be used to pay for Perseus services worldwide.
Perseus will process the Bitcoin transactions with GoCoin, Bitcoin's first truly international payment processing service. Bitcoin is acknowledged as a legitimate and secure financial service by government regulatory bodies. High-speed trading communities who profit from strong volatility may now be getting the relief they need to continue to trade via Bitcoin rather than the highly regulated Majors across all asset classes. Even more broadly, companies earning profits in Bitcoin can now efficiently pay for the technology Perseus offers with Bitcoin.
"Perseus learns and listens from our global customer base who profit from trading across all markets. We are happy to accept payment in Bitcoin as Bitcoin is a valuable digital asset and form of payment," says Dr Jock Percy, Chief Executive of Perseus. "Aligning with GoCoin for Bitcoin processing directly supports efficient trading, from pre-trade to post trade, and other digital enterprises such as online gaming who earn Bitcoin as part of their everyday business."
GoCoin launched November 2013 with an initial focus on Asian and South American countries, where the challenges of accepting credit cards and purchasing goods and services online between even neighboring countries can be especially difficult. In terms of market verticals, GoCoin focuses on providing Bitcoin payment processing for e-commerce, digital content and interactive/social gaming
"Perseus represents the ideal customer fit for GoCoin as we are not only aligned in sharing the same target markets but both firms are committed to innovation and making the world a better place," says Brock Pierce, Chairman of GoCoin. "Bitcoin is a safe, efficient payment vehicle that truly holds the buyer and seller to the highest level of accountability. We look forward to a strong and prosperous relationship with this high-speed connectivity provider."
