One of the world’s largest distributors of electronic components and services, Avnet has turned cryptocurrency friendly and will be accepting cryptocurrency payments. Avnet will accept payments through a partnership with blockchain payments processor BitPay.
The Fortune 500 firm announced the news on Tuesday and stated that its consumer could pay for products and services in bitcoin (BTC) and bitcoin cash (BCH). The payments will be processed and verified by BitPay. Sunny Trinh, Avnet’s Vice president of demand creation stated:
“We’re working with BitPay to facilitate secure blockchain payments for all types of customers so they can focus on developing their products, not how to pay for them.”
In partnership with @BitPay, we’re now accepting cryptocurrency! It’s as easy as verifying funds, processing an order and completing a transaction. Find out how you can now pay in @Bitcoin. #AvnetReachFurther https://t.co/S2wv0xqjWv pic.twitter.com/XOf6ta2gIP
