PORDENONE, Italy, Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Launched in February 2018, Crypto Emporium is an online cryptocurrency-only luxury emporium. It offers luxury brands at a competitive cost, including electronics, vehicles, property, precious metals, and more. Crypto Emporium stands as one of the very first e-commerce businesses to exclusively accept cryptocurrency for purchases.
According to Crypto Emporium founder Stephen Travers, Dash was selected for integration due to its fast transaction times and low fees, and his faith in the project's long-term vision.
"A lot of thought goes into the cryptocurrencies that we accept on Crypto Emporium. Having only integrated 6 coins before Dash, it goes to show just how much of a stringent process it is. Most importantly, we have to believe in the project long-term This is important to both protect our business, but also as a responsibility to our customers/clients. Having heard the outreach from the Dash community, we conducted our own research into the project and eventually put the question to the Twitter community. The feedback was excellent."
Dash Core CEO Ryan Taylor believes that Dash will be a natural fit for Crypto Emporium's users due to low fees and fast confirmation times.
"I'm excited that Crypto Emporium has chosen to integrate Dash as a payments option. As a payments-focused network, Dash provides a payment experience that Crypto Emporium users will love, including rapid confirmation times and micro fees."
In addition to the low fees and fast confirmations offered by Dash as a payment network, the strong and motivated Dash community stands out as an asset. According to Travers, the degree and quality of engagement from the Dash community came as a surprise.
"Honestly we were quite taken aback by the response from the Dash community. After receiving a number of emails asking us to accept Dash on Crypto Emporium and conducting our own research, we put the question to the community on Twitter. What a brilliantly motivated, helpful, considerate and knowledgeable community Dash possesses. We've always felt the relationship between a project and their investors/holders says a lot about that project in general. It's something we've always been incredibly mindful of in the past and have managed to build great relationships with many of the cryptocurrencies that we support. We look forward to building this relationship with Dash and serving their community with distinction."
Dash is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies for payments, and is accepted at a large number and wide variety of merchants, with nearly 5,000 listed on Dash merchant listing site DiscoverDash. It has a rapidly growing global presence with strong merchant adoption in key areas such as Venezuela, Colombia, New Hampshire, and Germany. Dash's global growth as a currency has been covered by major news outlets such as CNN and MarketWatch.
