The Security Traders Association New York announced that it will begin accepting Bitcoin payments for tickets to its annual conference. The organization entered into partnership with the New York-based crypto-currency exchange Atlas ATS which agreed to match the amount of Bitcoin-purchased tickets, for up to $1,000.
In its announcement STANY said that all transactions made in Bitcoin will go through international payment processor GoCoin which allows for payments to be processed in both Bitcoin and litecoin. Thus, it is not just Bitcoin users but litecoin users as well are able to get a pass use their digital currency.
The STANY has been quite liberal in accepting new technologies that are transforming the way businesses are conducted or customers get cutting edge experience. In his statement to press the Security Traders Association’s CEO and Executive Director Kim Unger said that part of STANY’s mission is to educate its members about new industry developments and opportunities.
STANY is Receptive to the New Technologies like Bitcoin
Mr. Unger added that in addition to a panel discussion of cryptocurrencies, his organization thought it would encourage members to gain some first-hand experience using digital currency to pay for the event itself. The latest decision on the part of STANY is expected to encourage Bitcoin users who now have additional place where they can spend their digital currency.
Over the years, STANY played a vital role representing professionals in trading and financial services. In its existence for more than eight decades now the organization has focused specifically on issues within the security trading realm. To expand its reach and to educate professionals, it often organizes conferences and get together.
