Prismm makes “first ever” Bitcoin paper trade. The Kent-based recycling specialist bought 40 loads of mixed recycled paper from North Wales-based recycling service provider Parry & Evans in the deal using Bitcoin as the only form of payment.According to managing director Mike Jackson, the decision to use Bitcoin came about as a “great way to collaborate with a customer and solidify our relationship”. “The greatest benefit so far for the customer is that Bitcoin does not incur a transaction fee,” said Jackson. “Its value continues to go up significantly each day. Bitcoin is a virtual currency that has seen a sudden surge in value this year. It is not legal tender, but exists on the internet with about 3,600 new Bitcoins being generated each day and around 16.5 million in circulation currently.
