Neteller Avoiding Digital Currencie
recently revised their customer terms of service agreement to ban
the use of digital currencies. The revision was definitely due to
the rising popularity of bitcoin. The official revision says that
customers cannot use Neteller to “facilitate the trade, exchange,
purchase or sale of bitcoins, or any other virtual currency.”
Neteller is a leader in online payment processing
but they have avoided taking any risks after what happened some
years ago when they were forced out of the U.S. market. Neteller
is now getting back into the U.S. market and they want to avoid
anything that could cause them problems. Neteller processes billions
of dollars in transactions each year and they have been a very popular
payment processor for online gaming customers and businesses.
Neteller will likely be waiting on governments
around the world to accept bitcoin. That may take some time but
bitcoin continues to grow in popularity around the world. Neteller
would have been a popular option for players who wanted to use bitcoin
but for now that option is unavailable.
Neteller is now used in more than 200 countries.
The company was founded in 1999 and is operated by Optimal Payments
Limited which is a subsidiary of Optimal Payments Plc. Millions
of people around the world use the Neteller e-wallet to send and
receive money and make purchases.
