The leading self-service e-payment solutions provider in Romania, ZebraPay will soon start accepting two more cryptocurrencies. The platform has announced the inclusion of Ether and VEROS (VRS) payment options in its self-service kiosks.
Operational since 2009, ZebraPay has grown to become the largest self-service kiosk network in Romania. The service provider has over 2500 kiosks installed in over 350 localities across the country. The extensive technology development carried out by the company during 2011-2014 has gained ZebraPay the recognition of being the fastest growing Romanian technology enterprise.
ZebraPay’s CEO Adrian Badea explaining the use inclusion of new cryptocurrencies said,
“Innovation is a milestone at ZebraPay, so through this partnership, we increase our cryptocurrencies portfolio to meet the needs of the customers interested in this modern financial area and to increase accessibility to such services. The new cryptocurrencies that we introduced, VEROS and Ether, will bring the Romanian customers a step closer to the international trends.”
ZebraPay self-service kiosks currently support payments made using cash, NFC, mobile wallets, and cryptocurrencies. Until recently, Bitcoin was the only cryptocurrency supported by ZebraPay kiosks. However, due to the increasing demand for alternative payment methods, the company is planning to expand its cryptocurrency services and has just signed the agreement with VEROS to start offering VRS cryptocurrency payment option. Soon, customers will be able to purchase VEROS through ZebraPay self-service kiosks.
Only several weeks into it’s infancy, the VEROS cryptocurrency has a long-term mass adoption strategy in place to overcome the competition presented by other well-established options available in the market. As a part of the strategy, VEROS is housing the most popular services into a Crypto-One-Stop-Solution (COSS) platform, set for launch in less than a month’s time.
VEROS solves the mass adoption challenge by allowing the user community to control the distribution and value of the digital currency, independent of centralized agglomerates like mining pools. All VEROS transactions are secured with Ethereum smart contracts, governing the validation, distribution, and ownership of the tokens. VEROS has built a strong affiliate network responsible for creating a market comprising of all sorts of projects involving crypto and fiat currencies where VRS is used as a native token.
Second only to Bitcoin, Ether has the largest cryptocurrency market capitalization and will be soon made available for purchase at ZebraPay kiosks. Ether is not only a cryptocurrency but also a value token fueling the Ethereum network.
The participants of Ethereum platform (startups, application developers, etc.) pay fees for transaction processing and the computational power consumed for all operations on the network with Ether. Despite such technical use, the Ether tokens can be bought and sold alongside Bitcoin on major exchange platforms.
Each of the three cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETH, and VRS) adopted by ZebraPay have their own niche in the market, creating a diversity that many cryptocurrency users are currently looking for. The VEROS development team considers this move an important step towards the expansion of cryptocurrency market, especially in cryptocurrency friendly Romanian soil.
Starting next week, ZebraPay customers can buy VEROS and Ether at self-service kiosks all over Romania.
Founded in 2009, ZebraPay is a leading provider of self-service e-payment terminals located in over 350 towns across Romania. The ZebraPay terminals are found in major retail chains, universities, shopping centers, markets, gas stations and convenience stores.
VEROS is a transparent and secure cryptocurrency designed on the Ethereum blockchain. Designed specifically for mass adoption and everyday use, VEROS can be purchased on C-CEX and LiveCoin exchanges.
