International cryptocurrency exchange CEX.IO, announces a new partnership with the prominent luxury jewelry and watch manufacturer Jacob & Co. As part of the two companies’ cooperation, Jacob & Co. will onboard digital asset payments for its products.

Cryptocurrency transactions will be powered by CEX.IO’s digital asset payment gateway solution — CEX.IO Pay. Initially, the luxury items creator will allow its customers to pay with Bitcoin and Ethereum, with more cryptocurrencies to follow.

This approach is close to us at CEX.IO, as we stand on the frontier of financial innovation, which also demands out-of-the-box thinking. This is in part why we decided to partner with Jacob & Co. And in doing so we intend to facilitate the transformation of the luxury industry and e-commerce at large,” says Konstantin Anissimov, Executive Director of CEX.IO.
