COTI Signs Up over 2,000 Merchants to its Crypto Payments Service

Tel Aviv, Israel, May 18 2018COTI is leading the way in the adoption of cryptocurrency across mainstream markets. Since mid-April, over 2,000 professional e-commerce merchants from around the globe have signed up to use COTI’s payments system, in addition to over 50,000 platform users. They have signed up to the alpha net version of COTI’s platform, in anticipation of the full launch later this summer, demonstrating that COTI’s payments system is the crypto solution of choice.

This marks an important milestone in the company’s development. Spanning a variety of sectors within the e-commerce space, the new merchants include popular mobile casino sites Monaco Players Club and Royal Savoy Casino, as well as Volunteer Southern Africa, an organisation which has hosted over 9,500 volunteers across projects in South Africa.

Merchants benefit from COTI’s unique network for decentralized and scalable payments, which aims to solve the challenges posed not only by traditional payment methods, but also by current key cryptocurrencies, by facilitating efficient, secure, frictionless and cost-effective international commerce.

COTI achieves this by using a next-generation blockchain system which consists of DAG (directed acyclic graphs) structures. In using this cutting edge technology, COTI has developed a new base protocol, the Trustchain™. Unlike current blockchain systems, which have serious issues with speed and scalability, the Trustchain™ can process 10,000 transactions per second. COTI is set to launch a full payments ecosystem, comprising the COTI coin, wallet, and a currency exchange. Merchants who have signed up will have access to all these applications.

Earl Smith, owner of Volunteer Southern Africa, commented:

“We saw COTI as the perfect solution for our requirements, as it enables trustworthy, fast, simple payments on a global scale. This helps to support our everyday processes and transactions in a seamless way, which is crucial for our business and the fast-moving sector we operate in. For us, COTI has solved the issues which are faced by so many traditional payments solutions out there.”
