The latter is building a cryptocurrency exchange and has sought out Active Smart Contract and its company president Tim Berfield "to consider adding specific pieces to their project", ZoomAway said.
Active Smart is planned as a service provider, which helps merchants to accept both credit card and cryptocurrency payments on a single platform.
Mainly, Windsor is looking for a technology partner with the payment processing and customer relationship management (CRM) experience that "ASC and Berfield can bring to the table".
"At this time, we are in talks to discuss the depth of the relationship going forward, whether it be a simple working relationship with ASC as a subcontractor or whether the two companies explore a deeper relationship, including either a joint venture or revenue-share arrangement," said Tim Berfield, president of Active Smart Contract and the chief technology officer at ZoomAway Travel Inc.
"We are conducting due diligence at this time and are confident that we will be able to get to a letter of intent (LOI) very soon," he added.
