Countr POS, a Dutch company based in Amsterdam providing point of sale software for more than 3,000 merchants in Europe, has announced a strategic partnership with Coinify, a blockchain payment service provider (bPSP), to allow customer payments in 14 cryptocurrencies including bitcoin, ether, litecoin, dogecoin, and others.
