Now Accepting Cryptocurrency
Located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Aliant Payments is a merchant account provider that serves both standard-risk and high-risk business types. Founded in 2007, the company is a reseller of TSYS. In September 2017, Aliant partnered with BitPay to offer its merchants the ability to accept Bitcoin payments. It has since terminated this partnership and now offers its own cryptocurrency platform that can transfer cryptocurrency, liquidate, and fund USD through the company’s bank partner. The company also resells Pax as a POS solution.
Official Partner of the Miami Dolphins
While promising, Bitcoin’s burgeoning status as the vanguard of cryptocurrencies has yet to be fully adopted by most businesses. Though many merchants do accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, larger-scale enterprise businesses have been slow to adopt the payment method. Aliant’s efforts to facilitate Bitcoin transactions through its platform have culminated with a partnership with the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. In July of 2019, Aliant began working with The Litecoin Foundation to install infrastructure that would allow the Dolphins to accept payments for tickets, merchandise, and stadium concessions in either Bitcoin or Litecoin. Aliant’s role in establishing The NFL’s first crypto payment option bodes well for the company as other large scale retailers like Whole Foods, Home Depot, and Nordstrom have begun to accept Bitcoin.
