Abine Launches Bitcoin Anywhere, a New Beta Service

Abine announced a new beta service designed to help Bitcoin users more fully participate in online commerce. The invite-only beta will enable Bitcoin to Abine Masked Card purchases at any merchant. As the Bitcoin economy goes mainstream, there is an increasing need to be able to use Bitcoin at more places – as long as that spending is ultimately compliant and is for legitimate e-commerce purposes. The beta program is limited to users of the popular Coinbase Bitcoin wallet and users must also use Abine's Blur premium service (Blur lets anyone control their passwords payments and privacy). By linking Blur together with a Bitcoin wallet, a more accepted and more contextual Bitcoin-based e-commerce experience is possible. Abine plans to share the results of the beta program with key Bitcoin companies, influencers, and regulators in order to inform the ecosystem about the potential for broadening the pace of Bitcoin acceptance – from beyond the 85,000 merchants who accept Bitcoin payments.
