Digatrade/Securter’s focus is on the launch of patent-pending next generation credit card security and convenience features for online transactions to reduce staggering losses annually in the international card payments system that arise from unauthorized credit and debit card use or fraud. With this as its competitive foundation, Digatrade/Securter is also targeting provision of advanced automatic cryptocurrency conversion in credit card transactions that are easy for merchants and cardholders, regardless of the conventional or cryptocurrency denomination of merchant pricing.
Worldwide proliferation of cryptocurrency options for consumers has not yet resulted in standardized protocols by which conventional credit cards draw cryptocurrency holdings seamlessly, securely and affordably in terms of service fees – although a number of companies are making efforts in this space. It is considered by industry analysts to be a lucrative area for successful implementers in the future. Digatrade/Securter’s intended cross-platform integration of this cryptocurrency utility will increase both the user-friendliness of cryptocurrency and will perpetuate the relevance of conventional credit cards, simultaneously. This benefits all payment industry participants and consumers, worldwide. Digatrade/Securter is positioning itself to become one of the leaders in this field of expertise by delivering exceptionally practical and affordable solutions that are compliant with regulators in all points in the established payments system.
Digatrade’s business model is to make these solutions available to the global payments industry through implementation partnerships in return for fee-sharing derived from each transaction value. These nominal and affordable fees become large in aggregate because of the billions of transactions occurring annually. Online purchases by consumers and businesses are growing faster than other transaction categories because of the unmatched convenience that online provides. This is already the area of particular competitive strength for Digatrade/Securter, where its patented transaction security technology began.
