Epik.com, a full-service, all-inclusive domain name and operator of a commission-free marketplace announced effective immediately, customers may pay for domain registrations, marketplace purchases, escrow, SSL certificates, web development, hosting and other services using Bitcoin, in addition to credit card, Paypal, Masterbucks and bank transfer.

“Bitcoin, also known as the “frictionless currency”, allows instantaneous payments globally without payment processing fees. It eliminates intermediaries such as banks, which charge a fee on every transaction, and makes it easy to send funds in any denomination. All you need is a digital wallet and the cryptographic payment address. There are no forms to fill, no sharing of sensitive data, and no risk of unauthorized charges through a saved payment method. For the merchant, there is the added assurance of no chargebacks, e.g. due to a purchase being made using a stolen credit card.
“In the last seven years Bitcoin has evolved from a geek experiment to a reliable alternative to traditional systems. As the world changes, Epik must stay up to date with new trends to satisfy its highly demanding customer base. Epik is a bank for digital names. And now we have a digital coin,” elaborated Matheus Leite, Director of Product Management, who led and managed the implementation.”
