About BitPay’s BIP 70 Payment Protocol

BitPay aimed to eliminate all the payment errors that arose from their invoices. These payment errors occurred when someone paid too little, too much or too late. Furthermore, it also resulted when some forgot to add the miners’ fee.

Before BitPay introduced Payment Protocol (BIP 70), these errors piled up to thousands every week. BIP 70 eradicates all of these payment errors.

BIP 70 locks the payment amount, and Bitcoin address, thus preventing it from any manual mistakes. Furthermore, it registers the transaction first on BitPay servers, to check for errors, before registering it on Bitcoin Network.

BitPay witnessed an astonishing 90.24% decrease in payment errors after BIP 70 was implemented.
