Fort Lauderdale payment processor launches cryptocurrency service


    Aliant Payment Systems has launched a service for companies hoping to cash in on cryptocurrency payments.

    On July 31, the Fort Lauderdale-based credit card processor unveiled its crypto payment service, which allows online stores to accept and convert cryptocurrencies with the click of a button.

    The company is one of the first traditional merchant services to launch a cryptocurrency processing option in the U.S., said Charles Evans, a cryptocurrency consultant and partner at the financial service company Chyden LLC.
