Bitcoin Diamond Welcomes sms77 as Newest BCD Pay Merchant

​​Bitcoin Diamond has announced German wireless communications specialist sms77 as the latest company to accept payments in its popular digital currency. Businesses worldwide can now access comprehensive messaging tools using Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) and sms77 will join numerous other companies in the BCD Pay merchant directory, integrated within the BCD Pay Wallet.

Through its powerful application programming interface (API), sms77 enables businesses to automate communication via SMS, voice and text-to-speech. The company has thousands of clients across Germany, Austria and Switzerland, ranging from small shops to mid-size companies. In a fast-evolving market, sms77 prioritizes innovation to constantly keep pace with its clients’ needs.

“Germany has emerged as a leader in blockchain technology and we are excited to introduce Bitcoin Diamond to the German market through this partnership with sms77,” said Bitcoin Diamond Community Manager Carl Shicun. “By adopting Bitcoin Diamond payments, sms77 can open the door to digitally savvy international clients to access their comprehensive communication services.”

Cryptocurrency payments provide higher efficiency for both merchants and customers. With Bitcoin Diamond, transactions can be verified in a matter of seconds at a fraction of the fees charged by credit card processors. BCD also protects merchants from costly chargebacks and increases accessibility for digital currency-holding shoppers.

Over the past several years, cryptocurrency has emerged as the next evolution of money, thanks to its convenience, cost-effectiveness and decentralization. Designed as a means of transaction as peer-to-peer electronic cash, it matches the functionality of traditional fiat currency and goes beyond in efficiency, accessibility and security. Bitcoin launched in 2009 as the first cryptocurrency, and hundreds of others have since followed.
