European payments service firm Worldline is partnering with Swiss cryptocurrency company Bitcoin Suisse to provide digital currency payment services to consumers and merchants in Switzerland. Bitcoin Suisse recently announced that the two companies have signed a letter of intent, which is designed to increase acceptance and adoption of digital currency across the country.
Bitcoin Suisse CEO Dr. Arthur Vayloyan highlighted the project’s lofty goals while praising the company’s new partner:
“Our partnership with Worldline is a major step forward on the journey to bring crypto payments into broader adoption. Bitcoin Suisse is proud to serve as the processor of cryptocurrencies in Worldline’s payment service system. We applaud them for their pioneering spirit in taking this monumental step and pointing the way forward for others.”
According to the press release announcing the news, the companies will utilize Worldline’s existing SIX Payment Services and incorporate digital currency payment capabilities into its infrastructure. That integration will enable all 85,000 Swiss merchant SIX users to take advantage of cryptocurrency payment options without any added risk.
