The company designs and assembles about 100–150 pieces a year in-house, which are all limited edition and high-end are available in boutiques in over 40 countries. MCT is the first major watchmaker to officially accept online Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash payments. The company connects to the world’s first borderless payment network by partnering with Bitpay, the pioneer and one of the most experienced company in Bitcoin and blockchain payments. ‘Now MCT can receive payments in any amount, from anywhere in the world, from any computer or mobile device opening up new markets and opportunities’, according to the official website details.
Steve Czech, a Bitpay user suggested:
“BitPay great job you should have a list of companies and businesses that accept crypto some type of search engine or such!”

This will simultaneously boost the sales and promote MCT watches while also popularising the pioneer and the senior most platform in BTC and blockchain payments.
