TicketSocket has recently collaborated with CoinPayments to enable TicketSocket customers to use cryptocurrency and NFTs in combination with TicketSocket's NFT ticketing system - Sell NFT Tickets as a payment mode for events instead of cash. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and ERC20 Tokens are possibly being used for events payments. Together the companies are leveraging blockchain technology to provide standard modes of payment. The integration will follow the trend with the help of a model similar to what QuiD POS, a payment platform solutions provider, has adopted.

TicketSocket will now accept all cryptocurrencies available on majority exchanges, such as Gemini, Coinbase, and Binance. Apart from this, TicketSocket announces to allow merchants to specify crypto coins to accept for their events admissions. Over this announcement, CoinPayments' CEO Jason Butcher joined and shared his comments. He says, "We are keen to partner with TicketSocket and illustrate the limitless potential CoinPayments provides for merchants worldwide. Our robust and seamless solution will allow TicketSocket customers to accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment, providing an easier way of conducting business and reaching a broader consumer base.”

The corporation of crypto payments in event planning depicts a substantial shift in B2B and B2C. The massive shift of companies may accumulate an abundance of digital wealth in the future. The companies dealing with hard cash supply can also generate revenue to increase their transactions digitally. In this case, TicketSocket is eventually noting a positive impact—as in January 2022, around seven TicketSocket customers have begun using cryptocurrencies and NFTs as modes of payment. In this way, the company anticipates more of their older and newer customers to follow the new suite of payment faster and sooner. 

We feel that this partnership with CoinPayments is extremely timely in the industry as we simultaneously release support for NFT ticketing, this provides our clients with all the tools they need to be successful and stay cutting edge.”

Mark Miller, CEO of TicketSocket, also was heard saying,

TicketSocket currently stands as a leading NFT ticketing provider among other providers globally. The partnership of TicketSocket and CoinPayments now allows TicketSocket customers to sell tickets and include registrations for events of all types and sizes into crypto.  Launching the new payment mode and solution will enable buyers to purchase tickets through Fiat or Crypto and obtain a unique NFT. TicketSocket provides this service through a dynamic minting system that delivers 100% original NFTs to buyers.

Modulr and Ripple Partnered to Provide Seamless Payments into the UK and Europe

Modulr | February 02, 2022

Modulr, a leading payments platform, and Ripple, the leader in enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions, have joined hands to provide seamless payments into the UK and Europe regions. Trust Payments, the global payments group, is recorded to be the first customer to use the new service provided by the two FinTech companies. Both FinTech companies are making payment solutions easier for businesses like Trust Payments to initiate real-time payments across international borders powered by Ripple’s financial technology, RippleNet. The good news is global businesses will now have an alternative to legacy correspondent banking with the help of Modulr’s technology. As a result, they can now make payments into the UK and Europe regions faster, more reliable, and cost-effective. Since the beginning of the idea of providing a seamless payment mode, Modulr has focused on building a practical Payments-as-a-Service solution into the European and UK payment rails. The solution was created in the wake of critical payment infrastructure requirements in the UK, including SWIFT, Faster Payments and Bacs CHAPS, and SEPA in Europe. The solutions have been created, keeping the deep expertise in the European payments landscape in focus and shaping it as an ideal platform for seamless payments for businesses. Moreover, Modulr is one of few non-banks directly associated with the Bank of England, enabling the payments platform to settle funds at the Central Bank. Trust Payments, the first company to reap a direct benefit from the partnership between Ripple and Modulr, is now expanding its service and delivering new payment options further to other businesses. On this venture, Jonathan O’Connor, Chief Commercial Officer of Trust Payments, said, “Trust Payments continues its disruption in payments with the partnership between Modulr and Ripple delivering a new payment option for settlements. We want to ensure we offer merchants alternatives to traditional methods with reduced fees and increased speed of funding to their accounts.” In the future, Ripple and Modulr aim to deliver price-competitive, real-time, and reliable payments into North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East regions. Sendi Young, Managing Director of RippleNet in Europe, says, “Ripple is pleased to partner with Modulr, who has a deep knowledge and expertise of the payments landscape, as well as unrivaled connections to critical payment infrastructure in the UK. Together we look forward to providing faster; simpler cross-border payments experience for customers on RippleNet into the UK and Europe.” We’re excited to partner with Ripple - we share the same fundamental goal, which is to make it easy to send and control global business payment flows by removing the hidden inefficiencies plaguing international payments today. This partnership lays the groundwork for even bigger things to come. At Modulr, we’re looking forward to working with Ripple on delivering real-time, price competitive and reliable payments into the UK and Europe, and then globally in the coming months.” Myles Stephenson, CEO, and Founder of Modulr
