AlphaPoint Exchange powers digital payments and investing platform for Caribbean nations
San Francisco, Calif. And Barbados, W.I., January 27, 2014 — AlphaPoint Financial Services Inc.(alphapoint.com), the leader in digital currency exchange software, today announced that bi.tt (www.bi.tt) will deliver the first digital currency exchange for the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) powered by the AlphaPoint Exchange platform.
The Caribbean is one of the fastest developing market places in the world and yet the region's available payment solutions are limited and expensive. Bitcoins present a unique opportunity for every single person and business in the Caribbean to buy and sell products and services across borders immediately and with the lowest transaction fees of any institution. bi.tt is closing the gap between vendors and customers by delivering the Caribbean's first Bitcoin Digital Exchange using the AlphaPoint Exchange platform.
“Caribbean people and businesses need access to digital payments, just like everywhere else in the world,” said Oliver Gale, chief financial officer of bi.tt. “In delivering a digital currency service we selected the proven AlphaPoint Exchange platform which is designed from the ground up to deliver extreme uptime, robustness, extensibility and manageability.”
“With the bi.tt Caribbean Digital Exchange there is little need for traditional electronic payment providers like PayPal in the region,” he continued.
“Demand for digital currency investments is growing exponentially in the region and bi.tt is the first to fulfill this demand using AlphaPoint’s Exchange platform,” said Rick “Henri” Chan, COO of AlphaPoint.
