Cryptocurrency payments with businesses have been gaining broader acceptance across a wide spectrum of industries. Major credit card issuers Visa and Mastercard have both rolled out the ability for users to buy and make transactions with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. According to Statista, The United States has the greatest number of companies with Bitcoin ATM’s and in-store payment options than any other country in the world, at around 6,000 businesses. In a recent survey by Deloitte, 56% of businesses said their organizations would be making at least $500,000 in blockchain investments over the next twelve months.
Bitcoin Latinum is an enhanced Bitcoin fork. The Bitcoin Latinum algorithm and infrastructure break barriers and speed limits that have prevented some virtual currencies from achieving practical, real-time use. The Bitcoin Latinum tokens are part of an ecosystem being adopted by companies in media, entertainment, gaming, storage, cloud and telecommunications. Bitcoin Latinum tokens can be interchangeably used on each of these partner/supplier networks by consumers. Furthermore, Bitcoin Latinum looks to reduce the cost of a Bitcoin transaction from dollars to pennies for on-chain transactions.
Monsoon Blockchain Corporation, Asia's premier blockchain company, was selected by Bitcoin Latinum as its foundation partner. Monsoon is focused on innovative cloud solutions in the blockchain ecosystem, leveraging the latest blockchain technology to develop powerful business solutions that allow the successful digitization of and listing of assets across a variety of industries, including financial services, telecommunications, and media and entertainment.
