I haven’t had a chance to talk about some of the new projects that I’ve been up to. NewsBTC reported first, that I’ve joined Payza.com as a business development consultant.
This opportunity is really excited because I’m used to working only with startups, having started 2 myself. For the first time, I’m working for a very large multi national corporation with 300+ employees thats been in business over 10 years.
Payza specializes in underbanked countries. I’m really excited to be working with a large team that can help me take Bitcoin to the people who need it the most. I am responsible for consulting on the development, integration and incorporation of Bitcoin and Digital Currency into the Payza Global Platform.
This is what Payza had to say via The Wall Street Journal:
“Clearly, Mr. Shrem has an exceptional knowledge of the bitcoin market that we felt would be beneficial,” Payza said in a written statement. The company added that it has set “specific parameters on his role which is based on a limited engagement” and that it is considering his input along with other consultants.
Payza released a blog post a few days later outlining their plans:
Payza has started actively exploring different possibilities of integrating the Bitcoin cryptocurrency into its online payment platform. “We have a distinct vision of how we would like to incorporate Bitcoins into our platform,” said Ali Nizameddine, Executive VP of Product and Technology at Payza.
“The option that is most appealing is to allow our members to purchase Bitcoins with funds in their secure Payza accounts and to allow them to store their Bitcoins in their Payza ewallets or to transfer them to another wallet service. Also, merchants that process payments using Payza would be able to easily add the option to accept Bitcoin payments without the need to incorporate other payment gateways” Nizameddine added. “That is what we are currently trying to achieve, but the actual service offered will depend on the partnerships we forge and the regulations of the countries in which we operate.”
