)-- XO Skins, a leading provider of Custom Screen Protectors and skins for cell phones and other electronic devices
, announced today that they will begin accepting Bitcoin for customers to purchase products on their website.
Deciding to accept Bitcoin as a method of payment was a natural move for XO Skins, which prides itself on being ahead of the curve. “We’ve always aimed to be progressive. Some of our customers wanted Bitcoin as an option, so we decided to offer it,” said XO Skins co-founder Jason Martinez.
Bitcoin is a crypto-currency that relies on a distributed network and a public ledger system to facilitate peer to peer transactions. It acts as cash in the sense that transactions are not tied to a person’s identity and payments are non-reversible.
This new method of payment hasn't been around for more than five years. While still a young currency, it has made long strides in legitimacy over the course of its existence. The currency was first introduced by a pseudonymous hacker Satoshi Nakamoto, when he introduced it to the World from a white paper that surfaced around 2008. Although the real identity of its creator remains elusive to this day, Bitcoin has caught on and a huge market has started to develop.
"We have customers all over the world. There are a list of countries where PayPal isn’t available. Online banking for them is difficult. Bitcoin has no borders. We would like to offer payment solutions that work for everyone,” says Martinez.
XO Skins has already begun accepting Bitcoin and uses Bitpay as a payment processor for the currency. Since deciding to accept Bitcoin they have received a good deal of positive feedback from the tech community and are excited to be a part of what some are calling the “next gen digital currency.”
