LONDON and AMSTERDAM, Nov. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Blockmate Ventures inc (TSX.V: MATE) (FSE: 8MH1) (“Blockmate” or the “Company”) announces that it has launched new cryptocurrency instant-buy websites on the premium domains: blockchain.com.au (Australia) and blockchain.eu (Europe).
The websites facilitate purchasing of cryptocurrencies through a user-friendly interface where purchases can be funded by a credit card or local payment methods. These payment gateways are tailored to simplify onboarding experiences and are anticipated to generate targeted internet traffic based on the simplicity of their domains. Both domains are owned by Blockmate subsidiary Blockchain World Ltd which owns a wider portfolio of registered domains for the blockchain and cryptocurrency sectors.
Upon arrival at the websites, customers are invited to select a cryptocurrency that they wish to purchase, and then nominate a digital wallet to receive the currency upon checkout. Future website updates are expected to also include the option to create a digital wallet address within the website. New cryptocurrencies will also be regularly added to websites. Revenue for Blockmate will be dependent on uptake and transaction volumes.
Andrew Smith, CEO of Blockchain World commented, “The launch of blockchain.com.au and blockchain.eu are examples of how Blockmate can monetise a deep portfolio of digital assets suitable for the blockchain and crypto sectors. Onboarding from fiat to crypto is one of the biggest challenges for customers new to the crypto space so addressing these issues with our premium domains enables Blockmate to monetise ownership while the domains appreciate in value as interest in the blockchain space grows.”
“Although the sector is currently undergoing a Crypto Winter, we anticipate higher website traffic and demand for crypto onboarding as the sector cycles, similar to previous downturns.”
In 2021 there were 239.3 million crypto users globally. This number is forecasted to reach 347.7 million by 2027 with the industry growing at an annual growth rate of 16.4% . The industry growth rate further projects annual revenue from the cryptocurrencies segment to reach USD $74.30 billion by 2027.
