Aliant Payments Celebrates 17 Successful Years

The team at Aliant Payments is excited to be celebrating 17 years of business in the fintech industry this month! Since our launch in 2003, Aliant’s mission has been to position ourselves as an innovative leader in the payment processing industry, known for providing cutting-edge technology and outstanding customer service. We have grown into a company that serves over 8,000 merchants worldwide, processes over $1 billion in volume each year, and has partnered with over 100 agents, ISOs, and software developers across a variety of verticals. We’re proud to maintain a 5-star average from over 175 online reviews on websites including Better Business Bureau, Consumer Affairs, Card Payment Options, and Facebook.

This past year has been a busy but exciting one, as we worked to offer free cryptocurrency processing to any merchant that signs up for an account, make cryptocurrency a part of professional sports, develop a brand new website and CryptoBucks app, and do some nice things for our incredible employees.

Last March, we announced that Aliant had added Bob Moore Auto Group to our expanding roster of merchants accepting cryptocurrency payments. Within six months of working with Bob Moore Subaru, the first car was purchased in Bitcoin. There have since been at least three car purchases made with cryptocurrency, as well as numerous retail transactions.

In July, Litecoin became the “Official Cryptocurrency of the Miami Dolphins.” Launched for the 2019 NFL season, this partnership between Aliant, the Dolphins, and the Litecoin Foundation created a powerful alignment between cryptocurrency and one of the world’s most recognizable sports brands. This partnership gave sports fans, crypto enthusiasts, and those interested in doing a little bit of good the ability to pay with Litecoin and Bitcoin when purchasing tickets for the team’s 50/50 raffle, where half of the proceeds benefitted the Miami Dolphins Foundation and its charitable causes. As a result, the proceeds from the 50/50 raffle increased from an average of $72,000 per game up to $86,000!

In May, the Litecoin Foundation appointed Aliant CEO Eric Brown as an official Advisory Board Member.

In October, CEO Eric Brown attended and spoke at the second annual Litecoin Summit, discussing the future of crypto payments, how CryptoBucks works and how we’re incorporating it into traditional payments through our Titan platform. If you missed Eric’s talk, you can watch it here.

We did lots of great things in Year 16, but our favorite is what we did for our employees. For working so hard and being so amazing, we paid each of our employees part of their compensation package in cryptocurrency– a combination of Bitcoin and Litecoin. We saw it as the perfect way for our employees to be a part of Aliant’s involvement in the shift to digital currency, and provide them with a vested interest in cryptocurrency not just as something they work on in the office. The more our team utilizes digital currency, the better our customer user experience will be.

In addition to these milestones, Aliant also was mentioned in 75+ digital publications including Forbes, CoinTelegraph, TechCrunch, and Thrive Global, to name a few.
