       航运业的数字化新纪元似乎已蔓延到各个领域,包括使用数字加密货币(cryptocurrency)支付。
 
       据彭博(Bloomberg)报道,乌克兰航运公司Varamar创始人Alexander Varvarenko称,公司正在与某客户协商首笔比特币交易。
 
       Varvarenko指出,这种去中心化电子货币价值在1万美元左右,将促进公司业务发展。
 
       他说,比特币将有助于与巴基斯坦、俄罗斯、也门、卡塔尔等受制裁国家和银行融资受限的客户做生意。同时,数字加密货币加快了交易速度,因为这意味着比通过商业银行付款更少的文书工作。
 
       尽管协商仍处于初级阶段,但此举推动了比特币更加广泛的国际影响力。
 
       航运公司Varamar创立于2009年,为海上货物提供半班轮(semi-liner)和不定期船运输服务。承载货物有重型和超大型装置,项目货和一般货物,滚装设备和集装箱,钢铁和散装货。半班轮航线把欧洲与南美、中美、非洲、中东、亚洲、远东和澳洲连接起来。

Ukrainian Shipping Company to Accept Bitcoin?
 
Digitalization seems to be ushering in a new era in all segments of the shipping industry, including payment in cryptocurrency.
 
Namely, a Ukrainian shipping company Varamar, is reportedly negotiating its first bitcoin deal with a client, Bloomberg writes citing Alexander Varvarenko, founder of the Odessa-based shipper.
 
According to Varvarenko, bitcoin, a decentralized digital currency, the value of which stands at around USD 10,000, will facilitate how the company does business.
 
This, in particular, relates to the countries affected by sanctions such as Pakistan, Russia, Yemen, and Qatar and clients with restricted access to bank financing. Furthermore, the cryptocurrency allows for faster transactions as it requires less paperwork when compared to doing business with commercial banks.
 
Even though the deal is still in its initial stage, the move points to the ever greater popularity of bitcoin across the board.
 
The company was created in 2009 to offer semi-liner and tramp services for transportation of cargo by sea. Among the cargo carried are heavy and oversized units, project cargo and general cargo, ro-ro equipment and containers, steel and bulk. Its semi-liner services connect Europe to South America, Central America, Africa, Middle East, Asia and Far East and Australia.
