ForumPay, the global cryptocurrency payments technology provider is partnering with Hancock Askew & Co. LLP to enable clients of the crypto friendly accounting firm to pay with their preferred crypto wallet and currency.
Hancock Askew will take advantage of ForumPay’s simple and easy to use payment link technology to invoice its clients via email. The recipient simply clicks on the link and scans the QR code with their preferred wallet. ForumPay instantly converts the crypto to fiat currency at the best execution rate available, settling to the merchant’s bank account on the next business day. The process is fully automated from end to end shielding the merchant from the risk of any potential volatility.
Josh Tate, CEO and co-founder of ForumPay said, “It is exciting to work with such an innovative company that is leading the market by adopting next generation payment technology in what many consider to be a traditional industry. Our payment link solution which requires no integration and where businesses only pay when they transact is ideally suited to connect the accounting and other professional services sectors to the exponential growth in crypto payments.”
Michael McCarthy, Managing Partner of Hancock Askew said, “As a digitally forward firm, the leadership team at Hancock Askew is dedicating time and resources to understand the quickly evolving world of cryptocurrencies and how businesses are utilizing them. Accepting Bitcoin and other well known, widely traded cryptocurrencies, not only offers clients a different method of payment but also expands the possibility for the firm to work with businesses and individuals who solely operate within this currency. In addition, we have a growing team of CPAs across the firm with experience in tax, audit and business advisory for companies working with cryptocurrency or in the crypto industry.”
