CoinPayments, the world’s leading cryptocurrency payments processor, today announced its newly formed partnership with the Emerging Payments Association (EPA), a global organization focused on connecting the payments ecosystem and encouraging innovation across the industry.
As part of the EPA’s diverse membership base, CoinPayments will work with the organization to drive further adoption of cryptocurrencies as a form of payment globally.
“CoinPayments’ decision to join the EPA is a signal to the payments industry: cryptocurrencies are going mainstream,” said EPA Executive Chairman David Hunter. “We can’t wait to work closely with the CoinPayments team on ways to encourage broader alternative payments adoption.”
“We’re in aggressive growth mode right now and building bridges across the payments industry is a key part of our strategy,” continued CoinPayments CEO Jason Butcher. “The EPA puts us among an elite group of companies driving innovation. We’re proud to be part of that movement and look forward to contributing our perspectives on global cryptocurrency transactions.”
CoinPayments and the EPA will immediately begin work together on a set of programs designed to build knowledge around cryptocurrency payments.
