Visitors to Brisbane Airport can now pay for goods using cryptocurrency, as a new service was formally rolled out over the weekend…
A new collaboration between Brisbane Airport and TravelByBit came into force over the weekend. The upshot of it? You can now use cryptocurrencies at over 30 retail stories on the Brisbane Airport complex, with more on the way.
A multitude of currencies are being accepted, and the formal rollout follows testing and trials over the past couple of weeks. Now, visitors to the airport can use special payment systems to quickly and easily pay for goods whilst on their travels.
Here’s a video released by TravelByBit that demonstrates how the payment system works…
Stores in Brisbane Airport have started displaying signs confirming that they accept crypto. Thus, even if travellers don’t use it as of yet, they’ll be aware that Brisbane Airport is crypto-friendly.
