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."
