Edgevana, the market leader in blockchain infrastructure and ecosystem technology, has become the first company to begin accepting cryptocurrencies in this niche. press release..
Edgevana is currently accepting payments for services and products on SOL, USD Coin, and Tether.
Virtually free instant payment
Solana Pay is a payment protocol and standard set that allows sellers to accept digital dollars at the time of sale. Payments are instant and the process is virtually free.
A truly decentralized system
This system is truly decentralized with no fees or brokers. The only requirement is that Edgevana customers use a Phantom, Glow, or another Solana Pay compatible wallet. Mark Thiele, CEO and co-founder of Edgevana, said:
Many people in the Web3 space prefer to pay in cryptocurrencies, and we believe that offering payment options that go beyond traditional ones will make Edgevana the preferred provider in this space. Customers appreciate the security and efficiency of cryptocurrency payments. This helps reduce transaction fees and the risk of fraud.
Sheraz Sheria, Head of Payments at Solana Labs, added:
Solana Pay makes it easy for merchants to trade in digital dollars and benefit their customers as a truly decentralized payment rail. Leading merchants like Edgevana understand that digital payments should be as frictionless as data traveling over the Internet, and Solana Pay makes it possible.
Cryptography is more secure than debit or credit card payments
Cryptocurrencies are considered more secure than debit or credit card payments because payer data is not held in a centralized hub that is vulnerable to data breaches.
In addition, the ledger validates and protects all transactions. This makes theft of personal information very difficult, if not impossible.
Edgevana strives to meet the needs of the world’s most dynamically growing NFT providers, blockchain protocol operators, and enterprises in terms of scale, speed, resilience, and security.
The company’s global presence and software platform enables the scale, agility, economics, and decentralization to attract Edge and Web3 deployments.
