Fintech Startup reaches important Milestone with Payment Partner Concardis Nets Group

“Concardis, as part of the Nets Group one of Europe’s leading payment service providers, and Salamantex , Austrian specialist in the development of software solutions for crypto-payment, are rolling out the acceptance of digital currencies such as Bitcoin, Ether, and Ripple nationwide in Austria. Accordingly, they are enabling merchants, service providers, and restaurateurs to accept cryptocurrencies from customers on standard payment terminals in addition to traditional payment methods.
