Quintain Marketing now accepting Bitcoin for payment

| November 5, 2014

bitcoinAnnapolis marketing agency Quintain Marketing has announced  that it now accepts Bitcoin as a form of payment for its marketing and web design services.

“We believe digital currency is gaining momentum as a method of payment and as an organization that embraces innovation, we’re excited to be amongst the first companies in the Annapolis area, and one of the first marketing agencies in the country, to accept Bitcoin,” comments Quintain Marketing Owner and CEO Kathleen Booth.

Launched in 2009, Bitcoin is the world’s most widely used cryptocurrency. The Bitcoin peer-to-peer network is made up of thousands of computers run by individuals around the world. It is similar to gold in that its supply is constrained mathematically to up to 21 million units that will grow in a predictable manner. Bitcoins are accepted by a number of notable vendors including Overstock.com, Amazon.com, Dish Network, Target, CVS, Dell Computers, Paypal/Ebay, Expedia, Home Depot, Kmart and Sears.

“The ability to accept Bitcoin is really a win-win for both Quintain and our customers,” continues Booth. “There are no transaction fees for us as a merchant and it provides our expanding national client base with more choices when it comes to payment.”

Quintain has partnered with Baltimore-based Bitsie, Maryland’s first full service Bitcoin agency, and Bitpay, a trusted third party payment processor, to process Bitcoin transactions. Bitpay’s instant exchange features will convert Bitcoin payments to U.S. dollars at the moment of transaction.
