British financial research firm Micro Hive now allows users to pay with BTC, ETH and LTC after integrating a plugin from crypto payment company CoinPayments.
According to a press release released today, London-based financial research firm Macro Hive has announced that its customers can now pay for services using cryptocurrency.
Micro Hive, which operates as a full-service financial research company, is now accepting payments in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC). The three cryptocurrencies are among the most popular in the crypto space, with merchant integration making them acceptable for payments worldwide.
In a statement, the company’s founder and CEO, Bilal Hafeez, stated that the decision to accept crypto follows growing customer demand. He added that as a disruptor in the research industry, the company is always focused on keeping an eye on the latest technological developments.
Users will access the crypto payment option thanks to a partnership with CoinPayments, a leading cryptocurrency payment processor. Launched in 2013, the Vancouver-based platform has so far helped process payments worth over $ 10 billion using more than 2,000 different coins.
Micropayments CEO Jason Butcher said the company’s payment plugin would help Micro Hive better serve its customers’ needs. This is a safe way of mass adoption of cryptocurrencies.
“As more and more consumers demand to pay in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, our focus is on enabling more businesses to make a smooth transition to digital currencies. It is the path of least resistance to mass adoption. “ Mr. Butcher noted.
Mr. Hafeez also added that crypto customers are the “Option to pay with more efficient and safer means of payment.”
There are over 200 million crypto users worldwide, according to Singapore-based crypto company TripleA. Asia leads with over 59 million; Europe has over 38 million while the US alone has more than 27 million.
Macro Hive was launched in 2019 and offers private investors a platform through which they can access high-quality research on various topics, including cryptocurrencies.
