Japan is determined to spread the cryptocurrency payment in their country!
The bitcoin exchange Bitpoint has an announcement last month, they will provide the cryptocurrency payment platform to the Alipay, Wechat pay and Union Pay, with Nippon Pay. Chinese tourist will be the target customers of this platform.
Not only BTC, Bitpoint also supports ETH on this platform, they have already worked with Peach Aviation to facilitate customer to purchase air tickets with cryptocurrency, and there will soon be 10,000 shops support cryptocurrency payment as well.
In my city there is still only one shop or two that we can pay with Bitcoin. How about yours? It seems some countries would like to have their own digital currency. I think it is no doubt the blockchain will be the focus of the upcoming internet development.
Let's share how's the development of cryptocurrency in your place!
