The corporation anticipates a 40% increase in Bitcoin payments in the first year.
A luxurious yacht company has reported that it will begin accepting cryptocurrencies for its offerings and anticipates a 40 percent surge in Bitcoin (BTC) payments in the first year.
In addition to accepting Bitcoin payments, the firm also announced that it would base its web and mobile services on blockchain technology as it provided more transactional security than any other system.
The company plans to make $6.5 million in sales this year, mainly from its yacht charter operation and the bespoke events it organises for customers.
Prime Experiences, which was co-founded by two Colombians and is currently operating in North America, seems to have identified Miami as a potential future point of collaboration. The company’s president, José David Tobón, stated that the company is currently in discussions with Miami’s crypto-friendly mayor, Francis Suarez, who has previously pressed for ambitious cryptocurrency legislation and recently proposed that Miami residents should be allowed to earn salaries in Bitcoin.
“Many doors have opened with this type of currency; we are currently in discussions with the Mayor of Miami, who is interested in expanding bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the city. “Miami could be the next Silicon Valley, as most large companies, including Tesla, Facebook, and Google, are looking to expand there,” said Tobón.
In recent years, the number of providers that support cryptocurrency as payment has become more diverse. Once mostly the currency of choice for mainly web-based services, crypto has recently begun to be accepted by a growing number of physical institutions, including real-estate companies, auction houses, music colleges, and baseball teams.
