CoinPayments can provide Monero payment processing to merchants looking to accept, store, convert and send Monero. Being a Monero payment processor requires CoinPayments to stay up to date with all the latest feature additions, code and development updates to provide a secure connection with the Monero blockchain.
Monero is an open source project focused on improving privacy through secure, private and untraceable transactions.
