Facebook, Spotify and Ryanair could accept bitcoin from today following BitPay deal
Payments platform Adyen has integrated with the world’s leading bitcoin payment processor BitPay, opening up the possibility for Facebook, Spotify, Ryanair and thousands of other merchants using Adyen to accept bitcoin.
More than 3,500 merchants around the world use Adyen to process transactions, including four of the five largest US internet companies.
“It’s such a great partnership,” said Sonny Singh, chief commercial officer at BitPay, speaking toIBTimes UK. “Adyen’s focus on e-commerce is perfect for bitcoin. It means firms don’t need to overcome the integration issues with bitcoin as it will now be already included in their existing infrastructure.”
UK-based games developer Jagex will be the first to enable bitcoin payments for its customers through Adyen, though Adyen’s BitPay integration will mean any merchant using the platform will be able to easily allow bitcoin payments in the future.
