Coinzone has gone live with its website, which highlights the upcoming launch of their payment gateway for Bitcoin. Coinzone focuses on eliminating geographic boundaries while simultaneously creating the best user experience for Bitcoin and other digital currencies.

The Coinzone team has been working with some of the industry’s top legal and professional advisors to build a solution that is fully compliant with various international markets. The goal is to set up a workable approach in the current regulatory environment that will ultimately serve as a long-term solution.
Manuel Heilmann, Coinzone CEO and co-founder, explained why the company is so passionate about assisting international customers with payments.
“Bitcoin will fundamentally change the way people pay in markets where traditional payment systems are less developed,” Heilmann said “Small and medium sized businesses in Europe and emerging markets often have specific needs. We will address these specific needs, going far beyond just processing payments.”
Heilmann has extensive international experience and has worked in e-commerce for 13 years. Prior to Coinzone, he served as VP and GM of the MyCommerce Division at Digital River. Other Coinzone co-founders include Radu Georgescu and Diwaker Singh, both of whom possess decades of experience with e-commerce, software and payment companies.
“When I traveled to Africa fifteen years ago, many people didn’t have phone lines. Instead of wiring everyone up, they went straight to mobile,” Heilmann said. “As a result, Africa and other emerging markets ended up spearheading innovations like mobile payments. Bitcoin and other digital currencies offer ways to pay or transfer money with a mobile phone or computer.”
Heilmann said that due to the fact that these solutions circumvent traditional payment systems, they are friction-less, border-free and accessible to everyone.
“We’re excited to be involved with these technologies, which are more innovative and cutting-edge than most current banking products,” Heilmann said.
