VANCOUVER, BC – January 18 th, 2018 – ZoomAway Travel Inc. (TSXV: ZMA) (the “Company”) www.zoomawaytravel.com announced today the formation of Active Smart Contract Inc., a Nevada Corporation, wholly owned by Zoomaway Travel Inc.
The new company will be a payment processing platform offering a simple set of common APIs that will enable merchants to bill customers by credit card, ACH or cryptocurrency. Once implemented, the modular, plugin-in design will enable merchants to easily integrate new gateways and cryptocurrencies without additional work or rebuilding their applications.
The Company is building this to work in conjunction with its existing business and has seen the opportunity to create additional sources of revenue by making this product available to other businesses looking to capitalize on alternative payment methods. This new effort is borne out of the Company’s core competencies and previously announced blockchain strategies.
Tim Berfield, CTO of ZoomAway Inc. will head this new endeavor, serving as President. Mr. Berfield possesses an extensive background in merchant processing and has created payment gateway systems responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in transactions.
“While enabling our own e-commerce sites to accept cryptocurrencies, we were able to identify a real need for merchants that haven’t been adequately addressed. The crypto space lacks accountability, customer service, and clarity. We want to make accepting crypto as seamless as possible for our clients and allow them to see all of their transactions in one place.” Said Tim Berfield, CTO of ZoomAway, Inc.
“As we are adding to our Zoomaway infrastructure, we are continuing to identify new potential revenue streams. All the companies that we are forming will operate from the same central toolset. Each of our new entities provides integral pieces to the whole and hopefully will become their own profit centers.” Stated Sean Schaeffer, CEO of Zoomaway Travel Inc.
