Real Hodler must now be very strong: In Australia and New Zealand, Coca-Cola machines can now be used to pay with Bitcoin.While Bitcoin acceptance is still sluggish in this country, Bitcoiners on the other side of the world can at least use BTC to quench their thirst. In the future, digital gold can be exchanged for the capitalist shower at over 2,000 Coca-Cola machines in Australia and New Zealand. This is made possible by a cooperation between the Australian payment service provider Centrapay and none other than the company Coca-Cola Amatil. Coca-Cola Amatil is the largest beverage bottler and distributor in the Asia-Pacific region.
However, owning Bitcoin alone is not enough to make use of the new payment option. Thirsty antipodes with crypto-affinity have to use the Sylo Smart Wallet, a product from Centrapay. Then the Coca Cola paid for with Bitcoin is only a QR code scan away after the beverage selection.Centrapay CEO Jerome Faury does not miss the chance to construct a bonus from this in view of the coronavirus pandemic. Paying by QR code has the additional advantage that it reduces physical contact and addresses the hygiene problems that we all became aware of due to COVID-19. That contact transfers at Covid-19 apparently hardly play a role, at least according to data from the Robert Koch Institute. Mysophobic cola buyers should still appeal to the offer.
