Shells, a new virtual cloud desktop startup, has announced accepting cryptocurrency payments using blockchain payment technology provider BitPay.
The ability to accept cryptocurrency enables Shells to attract new customers and sales by tapping the massive crypto marketplace, which is a perfect fit for the secure, personal cloud computers that are offered by Shells. BitPay enables the startup to accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment without having to buy, own or manage crypto.

We’re thrilled to partner with BitPay as they manage the entire process, making it easy to receive crypto from our customers and convert and deposit U.S. dollars into our account,” said Alex Lee, CEO of Shells.
“We strive to provide the highest level of privacy and security when it comes to our cloud desktop workspaces. In addition to owning our server hardware, we have developed and optimized our product to provide customers with a secure and isolated environment on any web-enabled device,” added Lee.
Shells by accepting BTC, BCH, DAI, DOGE, ETH, WBTC and stablecoins USDC, GUSD, PAX and BUSD payments through BitPay, is broadening its customer base while being protected from the price volatility of crypto transactions. It benefits by adding cryptocurrency to its payment options while reducing high fees increasing payment transparency and efficiency.
