April 12th marks a new chapter in the history of leading cryptocurrencies payments solutions provider, CoinPayments. CoinPayments is best known for their robust selection of supported altcoins (well over three dozen).

They also provide a wide array of popular e-commerce solutions, including a handy online Payment Request and Invoice Maker, as well as a hearty Point of Sale Interface.

As if the sheer number of altcoins they already support wasn’t impressive enough, they are now opening the polls for another exciting round of voting to determine which cryptocurrencies they will be integrated next.

An Industry Leader In Cryptocurrencies Payment Acceptance

CoinPayments already accepts many of the highly popular altcoins and cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Peercoin, and Devcoin.

However, they also support numerous smaller altcoins such as CryptogenicBullion, BBQcoin and Sexcoin, as well. In addition to the impressive number of cryptocurrencies supported, CoinPayments has also blazed a trail in altcoin payment acceptance for Merchants and Charities since their inception.

For example, they offer Merchants an extremely modest 0.5% transaction fee, as well as provide an online checkout button maker and shopping cart button maker. They even provide an online donation button maker for Developers and Charities. Additionally, they support a wide range of popular shopping cart systems and e-commerce solutions including:

  • Blesta
  • BoxBilling
  • Drupal Commerce
  • Easy Digital Downloads
  • OpenCart
  • osCommerce
  • WHMCS
  • WooCommerce
  • Ubercart
  • Zen Cart
  • Plus several more.

CoinPayments’ Latest Cryptocurrencies Poll Has A New Twist

What makes this particular event truly remarkable, is the way that they’re going about it. In the past, registration was required to cast a coin vote. With their newest poll, they’ve added a couple of nifty twists. For one thing, registration is not required to vote. Moreover, they’ve decided to take it to the next level of excellence and help save lives.

CoinPayments has managed to deftly integrate a life-saving charitable fundraiser by way of a fully transparent and provably fair voting system; whereby 100% of all proceeds generated goes to benefit The Water Project.

The Water Project is a non-profit organization provides sustainable water projects to sub-Saharan African communities suffering from lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation.

From The Water Project website:

“These essential, life-sustaining water projects speak to what loving one’s neighbor truly means. We exist to see the world changed through this love. It is a simple message of hope in an increasingly desperate and hostile world. ”

Interestingly, in the true spirit of the Bitcoin Protocol, The Water Project adheres to full transparency and accountability by being honest about every cost.

Over 100 Cryptocurrencies Included In New Poll

Of the over 100 cryptocurrencies and altcoins included in this unique poll / fundraiser combination, some of the more interesting altcoins on the ballot include:

  • DarkCoin
  • FCK Banks Coin
  • SlothCoin
  • Gold Pressed Latinum
  • Kittehcoin
  • DopeCoin
  • Grumpycoin
  • Lovecoin
  • RonPaulCoin
  • And yes, even TittieCoin

There’s also a few heavy weight contenders on the ballot, including Ripple and Auroracoin.

Cryptocurrencies Poll Open From April 12th Through April 19th

Polls officially opened up to the public on April 12th at 12:00 pm and will remain open through April 19th. For a modest one mBTC, you can cast your vote for your favorite coin and feel good knowing that you also helped out a truly great cause at the same time.
