SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - Mar 13, 2014) - GoCoin, the first international payment platform for digital currencies, today announced plans to support popular alt-currency, dogecoin. Designed to serve high volume e-commerce and smaller retail operators alike, GoCoin currently empowers merchants to process bitcoin and litecoin payments at checkout.
"We've been carefully prioritizing the latest alt-coins, and dogecoin really stands out as a viable currency due, in large part, to the strength of its community," said GoCoin Founder & CEO, Steve Beauregard. "By integrating dogecoin into our platform, GoCoin is one step closer to giving merchants the ability to accept any digital currency and increase sales with new shoppers."
Behind the scenes, GoCoin's proprietary back-end systems optimize the coin exchange for cash, eliminating volatility and security risk. A merchant simply has to accept the direct deposit to their bank account or digital wallet, and GoCoin does the rest.
"We designed the GoCoin platform from the ground up be flexible; we can 'bolt in' any new digital currency," said Kevin Beauregard, VP of engineering. "We love the ethos of the dogecoin community and our merchants are ready to accept it alongside bitcoin and litecoin."
In November 2013, GoCoin announced a seed round of over $550,000 from an impressive list of global investors, including former Facebook and Amazon executive Owen Van Natta and Ooma founder Andrew Frame.
GoCoin is the first international payment platform for digital currencies, making it easier than ever for online and retail merchants to accept bitcoin, litecoin and dogecoin payments. GoCoin enables merchants to reap the benefits of accepting digital currency without taking on the perceived risk. Founded in July 2013, GoCoin is headquartered in Singapore with US offices in Santa Monica, CA. For more information, please visit http://www.gocoin.com.
