Westminster Security Ltd becomes first private security company to accept cryptocurrency

November 12, 2021

Westminster Security Ltd becomes the first private security company in the UK to accept Bitcoin payments. Private security firm Westminster Security Ltd is the first private security company in the UK to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as a form of payment.

The London-based firm is a trusted name in the security services industry. The company has a team of experienced ex-police and military personnel providing its clients with the highest quality of services, including close protection, private investigation and surveillance.

It was the first security company in London to join the London Living Wage Scheme and the first to sign a pledge to the Armed Forces Covenant. Once again, it is innovating by accepting cryptocurrency payments from its clients.

Bitcoin is an established and respected digital or virtual form of currency called cryptocurrency. High-level cryptography secures Bitcoin. Only the intended recipient of the data can read and process it, making it impossible to counterfeit or double-spend.

Cryptocurrency is secure, efficient, accessible, divisible, inflation resistant and transparent. Westminster Security Ltd identified an opportunity to enhance its reputation as a fearless market leader by accepting cryptocurrency.

John Moore, Managing Director of Westminster Security Ltd, explained: “My continued vision for Westminster Security is that we are constantly evolving, innovating and future proofing. We find ways to add value and ensure that we continue to deliver an exceptional client experience with continuous improvement. Accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies demonstrates that we are ahead of the curve as the first private security company in the UK, perhaps globally, to do this.

We already have many clients who use and invest in cryptocurrency and we are happy to offer them this option to pay for our services with the method they prefer. It will give our clients greater choice and peace of mind. Our ethos is to protect people, their assets and interests. In this respect, cryptocurrency certainly meets that criteria to us as a business and to the individuals that we protect.”
