Exploring the advantages for merchants and PSPs in receiving cryptocurrency payments: an interview with TripleA

Thursday 2 February 2023 10:08 CET | Editor: Mirela Ciobanu | Interview

Eric Barbier, the CEO of TripleA, presents the benefits merchants and PSPs can reap from accepting crypto payments once their concerns are addressed.

Despite recent challenges, experts see the potential for blockchain technology to revolutionise cross-border payments. There are now 300 million people with cryptocurrency worldwide, approaching the equivalent of the number of PayPal users, offering merchants a larger market. Crypto payments are also seen as cheaper than traditional options and offer a reduced risk of fraud.

However, merchants must work with a licensed crypto payment gateway to mitigate potential risks, particularly in the luxury goods market where illicit money may be involved.

Eric's journey into crypto began when his former company's developers were mining cryptocurrency using his resources.



He shares predictions for the crypto payments industry in 2023 in a video interview with us. His opinions were also included in our Crypto Payments and Web 3.0 For Banks, Merchants, and PSPs Report.
