We are very pleased with iSignthis and the fact that we now can open for global card payment is a milestone achievement.“
Accept cards to buy bitcoinsJohn Karantzis, Managing Director of iSignthis Ltd said “Coinify is the EU market leader, and a global top 5 bitcoin processor. The opportunity for both iSignthis and Coinify is immense, with AML compliance being one of the last barriers towards bitcoin gaining mainstream acceptance. iSignthis will be processing payments and identity directly to Coinify’s acquiring bank Clearhaus, in order to provide an integrated KYC identity, antifraud and transaction management service, allowing Coinify to now accept cards as payment for bitcoin purchase. We are very pleased to be working with Coinify in this exciting space."
