Voyager's Coinify subsidiary to provide state-of-the-art, secure payment platform
NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Voyager Digital Ltd. ("Voyager" or the "Company") (CSE: VYGR) (OTCQX: VYGVF) (FRA: UCD2), the fastest-growing, publicly-traded cryptocurrency platform in the United States, announced today that it has partnered with Usio, Inc. (NASDAQ: USIO), a FinTech and integrated electronic payment solutions provider, to enable its merchants to accept many prominent cryptocurrencies as payment.
Stephen Ehrlich, CEO and Co-Founder of Voyager said, "We are pleased to build on our strong, long-term relationship with Usio by partnering on this exciting, new initiative to facilitate cryptocurrency payments globally at the merchant and ISV-level. The combination of Usio's innovative, client-facing technology and Voyager's state-of-the-art, scalable, and secure payment offering, via our recent Coinify acquisition, is coming together just as the adoption of cryptocurrency as a form of payment is experiencing exponential growth. This new program will provide both merchants and ISVs an efficient, cost-effective, and seamless tool that responds to the evolution in payment trends."
Louis Hoch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Usio, said, "Since its inception, Usio has been an innovator in the fintech industry. By providing our merchants with the ability to accept various types of cryptocurrencies for all our payment solutions, safely and securely, just like we do for traditional electronic payment options, we will enable the merchants and ISV's we serve to meet the increasingly diverse payment needs of their customers. The development of this new capability further reinforces our commitment to the cryptocurrency markets, as we already support the electronic payment and disbursement needs of crypto exchanges, brokerages and related organizations."
Usio's unique new product will enable merchants to accept cryptocurrency as payment in-person, online, via electronic invoice or text-to-pay, among others, and can be transacted using the Voyager app. Usio will support as many as sixty cryptocurrencies across the globe, making it simple, convenient, and safe. This is a new way for Usio merchants to allow customers to checkout with cryptocurrency for online purchases, donations, tax payments and more. The introduction of a crypto option reinforces our commitment to offering Usio merchants more convenient options for their customers to pay. Customers can check out safely and easily, quickly converting cryptocurrency holdings to US dollars at checkout, with clear conversion rates and no additional fees--all in real time with no exchange risk in price fluctuation that some non-stable crypto currencies experience.
Usio expects this service to be available in late 2021.
