Cryptocurrencies have advanced a lot in this area, but still lack the speed and trust that centralized payment processors offer, even with all the limitations and traits that they have.

ATPC comes from the consonants of the word ATIPICO, that in Italian means “not typical”, and this is the work that this company has been doing since their start in 1996.
