Toronto Ontario – September 1, 2015 – Sync.com, the 100% private cloud storage and file sharing platform, today announced that they now accept Bitcoin as a method of payment, via BitPay.
“Sync offers a completely private alternative to consumer grade cloud storage services such as Dropbox, through the use of zero-knowledge encryption. Simply put, we can’t access the data stored on our servers.” said Thomas Savundra, CEO of Sync. “With Bitcoin, our customers can enjoy absolute privacy in the cloud for both their data and payments.”
Having launched as a proof of concept beta in July 2013, Sync’s zero-knowledge encrypted storage platform is now in use by over 100,000 individuals and businesses worldwide. Sync’s growth demonstrates significant awareness and demand for data privacy protection in the cloud. Bitcoin compliments Sync’s commitment to privacy by providing users with an encrypted payment option that does not require giving up personally identifiable information during signup.
“Protecting customer data is our number one priority here at Sync. As it should be for any business storing sensitive customer information in the cloud.” said Mr. Savundra. “And while we continue to offer traditional forms of payment such as credit card, Bitcoin is a win for our customers, and a win for privacy in general”.
