BitPay has partnered with payments giant Ingenico to allow brick and mortar stores to accept bitcoin via its point-of-sale (POS) terminals.
The payment solution, unveiled today as part of Blockchain Week, was developed by BitPay and installed on an Ingenico Terminal ICT250.
According to the company, it will be compatible with the majority of Ingenico terminals as they run its operating system, Telium.
Speaking about the integration, Miguel Angel Hernandez, managing director of Ingenico Iberia, said in a statement:
"Participating in such an important project has allowed Ingenico Group to demonstrate its leadership in the payment space and bring a safe and secure payment method like virtual currency to the end user."
