News: Bitcoin Now Accepted as Payment Method

Following on from my previous blog post about blockchain applications for the translation industry, I am able to announce that I now also accept Bitcoin as a form of payment.

This service is provided by BitPay, an established Bitcoin payment service provider founded in 2011.

In addition to standard bank transfers, my clients now have the added option of paying invoices in Bitcoin.

Clients benefit from the much lower administration fee for Bitcoin payments compared to international bank charges and an almost immediate transaction speed.

What’s more, my prices will continue to be in euros or Swiss francs – meaning I bear the risk associated with the volatility of Bitcoin. A win-win situation!

I will offer this option to clients each time I issue a normal invoice.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions at all about this payment method!
