BHB Network CEO Giacomo Zucco publicly urged Latvian airline airBaltic to replace BitPay as its Bitcoin payment processor September 5, claiming the company’s product “doesn’t work.”
Zucco to airBaltic: Go Open Source
In a tweet, Zucco — who has become known for his support of open source alternatives to overly-centralized services both within cryptocurrency and beyond — called on airBaltic to look at switching from BitPay to open-source BTCPay and Globee.
“Many users are trying to buy tickets (with) bitcoins and failing. You should get rid of BitPay (doesn’t work),” he wrote. “(BTCPay is an) open and free alternative. If you want fiat conversion, you can try (Globee).”
