Hot sauce enthusiasts can now use Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) to purchase PexPeppers Hot Sauce products to satisfy their spicy cravings. PexPeppers Hot Sauce's online store is one of the many ecommerce merchants that are adopting payments in BCD, a popular digital currency designed for speed and accessibility.
PexPeppers, based out of Colorado, has a simple mission: to create delicious hot sauces with passion and respect for family tradition. After the company successfully raised more than $11,000 from 283 backers on Kickstarter, it launched its very own brand of high-quality hot sauces, made with all-natural ingredients. Its product catalogue features five unique hot sauces that are guaranteed to excite the taste buds of hot sauce connoisseurs.
"I created PexPeppers Hot Sauce because I was tired of bland, mass-market hot sauce. I developed all my recipes using the honey that my grandfather has passed down," said Garrett Peck, PexPepper Hot Sauces' creator and hot sauce connoisseur.
"I am excited that my family's legacy can be shared with the world by allowing our customers to purchase with cryptocurrency, specifically BCD."
Cryptocurrency payments benefit small merchants like PexPeppers Hot Sauce as well as their customers. With Bitcoin Diamond, transactions can be verified in a matter of seconds at a fraction of the fees charged by credit card processors. The secure nature of BCD also protects merchants from costly chargebacks and increases accessibility for digital currency-holding shoppers.
Over the past several years, cryptocurrency has emerged as the next evolution of money, thanks to its convenience, cost-effectiveness and decentralisation. Designed as a means of transaction as peer-to-peer electronic cash, it matches the functionality of traditional fiat currency and goes beyond in efficiency, accessibility and security. Bitcoin launched in 2009 as the first cryptocurrency, and hundreds of others have since followed.
