TKO Home Inspections Bitpay Press Release

TKO Home Inspections Accepts Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash for Payments through BitPay

Accepting Cryptocurrency Expands New Customer Acquisition Opportunity

Groveport, OH 7/4/2018 – TKO Home Inspections (www.tkohi.com), a home inspection company, today announced the company is accepting Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash for payment for goods and services from BitPay, the largest global blockchain payments provider. TKO Home Inspections benefits by adding Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash to the payment options while reducing high fees and increasing payment transparency and efficiency.

“We decided to accept Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash because it will give our customers more options,“ said Todd Kirk, Owner/Inspector at TKO Home Inspections. “We chose BitPay to manage our merchant processing because they make it easy and handle the entire process of getting the Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash from the customer and depositing cash into our account.”

Using BitPay, TKO Home Inspections receives settlement within three business days directly to its bank account in US Dollars. There is no price volatility or risk to the company. As a push transaction, the user sends the exact amount of Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash needed to pay the bill. This eliminates traditional credit card fraud and identity theft risks associated with credit cards. Unlike the high cost of credit cards, BitPay charges 1% to process the Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash transaction and settlement. BitPay enables transactions from any computer or mobile device making it convenient for TKO Home Inspections’ customers.

“TKO Home Inspections realizes the potential for cryptocurrency to transform the property inspection industry, making payments faster, more secure, and less expensive on a global scale,” said Sean Rolland, Director of Product at BitPay. “Our goal is to make accepting cryptocurrency a seamless process.”

Bitcoin blockchain uses distributed ledger technology which is essentially an open, online spreadsheet. A major advantage is that blockchain provides incredible transactional transparency and it’s impossible to use the blockchain for fraud as every transaction is verified, recorded and stored. One of the most critical elements about the blockchain technology is that when the transaction that’s been reported in the ledger, it cannot be changed. This process creates highly efficient services and an overall better experience for TKO Home Inspections’ customers.
