ElenPAY in BTC Prague

The main goal of BTC Prague is to foster a community of Bitcoin enthusiasts, provide a platform for knowledge sharing and promote the adoption of this cryptocurrency.

To support the conference organizers, ElenPAY had a prominent presence. We offered payment processing solutions for 15 merchants in a simple, fast and efficient way.

In addition, we had our own space in the exhibition area. From there, we provided information and education on payment processing with Bitcoin Lightning – but we also provided entertainment! Attendees were able to participate in a race of electric-powered miniature cars powered by Bitcoin Lightning. Winners of the races could win prizes in a spinning game, in partnership with BitMaker and Jolt Rewards.

Finally, ElenPAY was represented at a panel discussion where our Lead Lightning Engineer, José Antonio Pérez Jiménez, discussed the advantages of the Lightning Network. This is the second layer Bitcoin network that ElenPAY uses to process fast and inexpensive transactions.

Collaboration results

This year we were able to surpass last year’s number of transactions and sales volume. This is a clear sign of the growing adoption of Lightning Network solutions among attendees and participants.

Let’s take a closer look at the results of payment processing at this edition of BTC Prague:

📈 Increased BTC volume processed: during the conference, ElenPAY processed 0.62 BTC (€38,946) compared to 1.37 BTC (€32,653) last year. Although the volume of BTC was higher in 2023, the higher exchange rate this year increased the value in euros.

Fast and numerous transactions: the payment platform facilitated almost 6,000 transactions, 40% more than last year. This figure highlights the ease and efficiency of ElenPAY’s infrastructure to handle a large volume of transactions smoothly and efficiently.

🗣️ Positive Feedback: Both attendees and merchants who used our POS gave us very positive feedback. They emphasized that it “just works” and that it “worked at the speed of light”. This demonstrates the technical soundness of ElenPAY and the Lightning Network as a payment system.
