Bitcoin and Lightning accepted here!

The Bangkok investment law firm accepts cryptocurrencies

PUGNATORIUS Ltd. has pioneered in recent years the establishment of cryptocurrencies in Thailand and has assisted a number of companies in entering the digital asset business markets. This includes accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment even though it is not legal tender. 

All professional fees, governmental costs, and other expenses paid to PUGNATORIUS Ltd. can be made in Bitcoin (and stablecoins).  No surcharges or transaction fees are charged. A regular receipt and tax invoice will be provided for each and every payment, without a reference to Bitcoin or another alternative currency or token. The QR Code, Bitcoin key, or Lightning Invoice for digital transfers to PUGNATORIUS are available on request.

Bitcoin’s Lightning network

While Bitcoin has been established itself as a store of value, its capabilities as a day-to-day payment system are limited. However, the new Lightning Network adds another layer to Bitcoin’s blockchain and enables users to create payment channels between any parties on that extra layer. 

Bitcoin payments through the Lightning network are accomplished within milliseconds and not shown on the blockchain. Therefore, they remain private and anonymous. While Bitcoin payments on the blockchain have a capability of seven transactions per second (tps), lightning is capable of millions to billions of tps across the network. The Lightning channel can be opened with any amount of bitcoin, and for a prolonged amount of time, theoretically forever. 

Fees: Due to its exceptionally low fees, Lightning payments allow instant micropayments. However, its anonymity and speed can be utilized for high-value payments as well. This will result soon in a fully-fledged alternative to currently existing payment systems,

PUGNATORIUS Ltd. accepts payments by Lightning. Details are available on request.
