Aliant Payments to Pay Its Employees a Compensation Package in Cryptocurrency

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (PRWEB) October 16, 2019

Aliant Payments, a leading U.S. based provider of merchant services and payment processing, announced today that it will be paying each of its employees part of their compensation package in cryptocurrency. The employees will be paid in a combination of Bitcoin and Litecoin.

“The fintech industry is growing and changing rapidly, and this is a way for our employees to be a part of Aliant’s involvement in this shift to digital currency,” said Aliant CEO Eric Brown. “Each member of the Aliant team now has a vested interest in cryptocurrency not just as something they work on in the office. The more our team utilizes digital currency, the better our customer user experience will be. This benefits Aliant as a company, and our employees as invested customers.”

Aliant became one of the first payment processing companies to offer merchants the ability to accept cryptocurrency payments in September 2017. In July 2018 it announced that it had developed its own domestic, fully compliant solution that processes crypto payments, converts cryptocurrency to USD, and offers merchants next day payouts. Aliant’s payment processing system, called CryptoBucks, mitigates the risk of volatility of cryptocurrencies for merchants, making easier the adoption of cryptocurrencies by anyone.

“Adoption happens when you’re able to earn cryptocurrency, and then go on to spend it,” said Aliant CEO Eric Brown. “Being a leader in the crypto and payments space, the Aliant team is always working to educate merchants, and lead by example. I'm so grateful to work with this amazing team, and I can’t think of a better way to compensate them for the value they bring to our community."

MD Energy Advisors creates strategic partnership with POWER UP

BALTIMORE (PRWEB) October 15, 2019

Baltimore based companies MD Energy Advisors and POWER UP announced a strategic partnership to help utilities and energy companies reach more customers with mobile charging trailers. This partnership brings together two emerging and pioneering companies in the ever-evolving energy sector.

“We are excited to partner with POWER UP combining their superior mobile charging technology with our market penetration acumen,” states Phil Croskey, CEO of MD Energy Advisors. “The opportunity to partner with another local small business is evidence that entrepreneurship and innovation is alive and well in Baltimore.”

“Everyone now has a mobile device and the inconvenience of not being able to charge your device when attending outdoor festivals or events is problematic,” says Ryan Doak, CEO of POWER UP. “Our partnership with MD Energy Advisors allows us to further deploy our solar powered charging trailers to a nationwide network of utilities eager to educate their consumer base on utility programs, products, and services.”

“Utilities are often criticized for not connecting deeply enough with their customers. In a world where choice is becoming more important – turning ratepayers into dynamic consumers – power companies need to offer a wider range of services and communications outlets,” says Ryan Doak.

The POWER UP Charging Trailer is a full-sized, custom branded, mobile device charging trailer that has a variety of configurations. Most trailers use solar panels, monitors, secured charging cords and RFID lockers to handle the demands of a large crowd or a tough environment with ease. Perfect for community outreach, emergency response, events, and festivals. The strategic partnership will initially focus on marketing the trailers to Utilities who want to reach customers beyond just the distribution of power.
