Leading bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox has decided to celebrate the holidays and the fact that it recently reached one million customers by offering special fee discounts. The company also announced a partnership with Mayzus Financial Services.
says it now has over a million customers and it is still growing. To mark the occasion, Mt. Gox will be applying a 25% fee discount to all transactions made between 20th December and 20th January next year.
The second part of the announcement is a bit more interesting, as it has long-term implications. Mt. Gox is partnering with Mayzus Financial Services and the deal will enable customers outside the United States to make quicker deposits by cutting processing times.
“Now that we are working with Mayzus, a leading financial company that is in-tune with the future of bitcoin, anyone with a verified account will be able to quickly send money to their Mt. Gox account via 126 global currencies,” Mt. Gox said in a statement.
Mayzus provides a wide range of electronic payment methods and the full list is available on its website.
However, the service has not been fully deployed yet. In phase one, MtGox will enable deposits via Mayzus, while phase two will bring deeper integrations and support for withdrawals as well. Users in the US will also benefit from the service, as it will improve the withdrawal process.
To get started, users need to have a verified Mayzus account. They will then be able to make deposits using Mayzus simply by choosing it in the Funding Options menu. Of course, additional information is available on Mt. Gox, but the process sounds very simple even without it.
