Syscoin to accept Bitcoin payments in its decentralized marketplace

March 2nd Washington, D.C. – The Syscoin development team is pleased to announce that it has added Bitcoin as a payment option to its decentralized marketplace.

“..By enabling direct Bitcoin payments within the Syscoin decentralized marketplace, we’ve exposed key functionality to a much larger demographic. This also greatly simplifies the process for anyone looking to use Syscoin’s Decentralized Marketplace functionality while insulating users from possible Syscoin price volatility..”

says Dan Wasyluk, Syscoin’s team manager and co-developer. Bitcoin payments will begin being accepted along with Syscoin’s “Shade” wallet release, tentatively targeted to be launched in March of 2016.

    Not sure why, but its obvious there is little or no interest in the clunky looking sys market, seeing from a few twitter and facebook likes + price drops on the news. Hopefully this will change.
