Making Crypto Payments a Reality
Founded in 2017, the Cyprus-based company is intending to disrupt the micro-payments industry with blockchain technology. Its PullPayment protocol provides a ‘free-of-charge’ transaction platform that allows its users to ‘pull’ rather than ‘push’ cryptocurrency payments.
This will enable crypto recurring payments for any subscription-based platform, similar to any fiat-based subscriptions. The company made headlines when its crypto payment solution was integrated on the adult entertainment website Pornhub.
It is also boasting competitive cryptocurrency exchange rates, low transaction fees, complete transparency, and 100 percent privacy.
The company closed a $117 million initial coin offering (ICO) in 2018 when the market was at its peak. Its PMA token is listed on several major crypto exchanges including HitBTC, Coinbene, Bittrex, and OKEx.
