Speaking at the Bitcoin 2022 conference in Miami on Thursday, Strike CEO Jack Mallers, said his ‘King’s Gambit’ is bringing Bitcoin back to its payments roots as he announced a number of eye-catching partnerships.
Mallers revealed that Strike is now partners with NCR (NCR), the globe’s largest point-of-sale (POS) supplier, and payments firm Blackhawk. The CEO also informed the public of a Strike integration with ecommerce giant Shopify, something he hinted at in February of this year.
“If we can help make the Bitcoin network more accessible and usable we believe we can change the world.
There’s not been since 1949 a superior payments network that allows us to innovate for consumers. Let’s build the superior payments network from scratch.”
A Strike press release stated about the Shopify integration:
“Strike’s integration enables Shopify merchants to diversify their existing payment options and reach untapped global markets and purchasing power. Strike’s integration also allows Shopify merchants to generate savings through low-cost payment processing. By instantly converting bitcoin (BTC) payments to dollars, Strike removes certain complexities merchants face in holding bitcoin.”
Mallers also told the Miami crowd that the United States’ competitiveness is at stake and that Bitcoin has an important role to play in it:
“This is about America and we need to protect our ability to innovate.”
He added that he has been involved with Wyoming’s bitcoin-loving Sen. Cynthia Lummis, working on legislation:
“I’ve also been working with policymakers to ensure that we have the right to build freely in this country.”
