Official Press Release
ForumPay’s coin- and wallet-agnostic payment platform enables any merchant to accept crypto payments in exchange of fiat
Malta, August 2020－ForumPay, the point-of-sale (POS) solutions provider, unveils its crypto-and-fiat interchangeable payment platform, which enables consumers to pay in crypto and merchants to receive payments in either crypto or fiat. The platform also allows customers to use any e-wallet or coin with which they choose to pay, without any need for physical contact between merchant and customer.
One of the biggest barriers to widespread crypto adoption has been enabling businesses to seamlessly accept payments in cryptocurrency. As the number of people who own cryptocurrency rises globally, so too does the demand to pay for goods and services with digital coins. Between Q3 of 2016 and Q1 of 2020, blockchain wallet adoption rose over 425 percent, according to Statista, and crypto-paying consumers in the marketplace are spending in excess of €3.4 trillion annually, according to an EU report on virtual currency and monetary policy. But some merchants, many of whom are unsure about cryptocurrency and blockchain’s future, have not been as fast to match levels of customer demand. That’s where ForumPay comes in.
Harnessing blockchain’s superior security protocols, ForumPay bridges the gap between the fiat and crypto worlds, allowing merchants to tap into an emerging crypto-paying consumer base by enabling interchangeable crypto-fiat payment transfers. ForumPay－which can be integrated into any POS system, website, smartphone, or tablet－offers crypto users and merchants:
Through its crypto-fiat exchange system, ForumPay normalizes coexistence between crypto and fiat, opening the opportunity for wider crypto adoption and increasing cryptocurrency acceptability and stability.
“We are excited to launch ForumPay’s payment platform－offering security, flexibility, and opportunity to both customers and merchants－and enabling them to tap into a growing consumer base,” says ForumPay CEO Joshua Tate. “These kinds of projects also open the door for crypto to see wider adoption, while fostering a payment ecosystem where crypto and fiat can coexist, without the need for one to supplant or outmode the other.”
ForumPay allows crypto consumers and traditional merchants to come together for a seamless and instant transaction. With crypto and fiat coexistence at the heart of the platform’s concept, ForumPay empowers consumers to purchase goods and services using their preferred cryptocurrency with their preferred wallet. Inversely, merchants receive payment in their preferred currency and in his/her preferred bank account.
