Bitfinex Pay has announced that its payment technology will be integrated onto ODEM, an on-demand education and employment marketplace that directly connects employers, students and educators.

Bitfinex Pay, a payment technology providing online merchants with a means of receiving contactless and borderless digital token payments, said that the integration will give ODEM users access to the payment widget for the purchase of programs and verifying and placing job candidates. The widget will enable ODEM users to purchase courses and programs using cryptocurrency, including bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and ODEM (ODE). Employers can also use these payment methods to place job candidates through ODEM’s employment network and stake ODE to verify their skills, employment and education experience.

“We are gratified that ODEM has chosen to implement Bitfinex Pay, as our technology for enabling contactless and borderless digital token payment increases in popularity,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex Pay. “I feel confident that the rich features available through the implementation of Bitfinex Pay will find a ready uptake among ODEM’s user base.”

As part of its collaboration with Bitfinex Pay, ODEM will also be launching educational programs that will help other developers understand the power and functionality of Bitfinex Pay and streamline the implementation, testing and deployment of this powerful financial toolset. ODEM understands the importance of furthering the mission of cryptocurrency and blockchain as means of real financial transactions and expects to see Bitfinex Pay as a leader in financial platforms in the cryptocurrency space.

“We’re excited to bring the ODEM token to life on our platform and fulfill our original promise of making education more affordable and accessible,” said Richard Maaghul, CEO at ODEM. “With 94 percent of people worldwide having never stepped through the doors of higher education, we understand that providing financial access to education and meaningful work opens many new doors for people to participate in the modern workforce through access to the right training and skills.”
