Brisbane International Airport is now accepting Dash, ETH, Bitcoin, Monero, and Doge as a form of payment billing itself as the first airport to proudly accept cryptocurrency. Every store inside the airport is now accepting cryptocurrency. One can also see the live transaction on their website and travelers from all over the world are testing the same.
Payments are made easy with the use of an app with no hardware requirement, and payments are done by just scanning the QR code from this app.
Caleb Yeoh, CEO of Travelbybit said to Nugget’s news channel:
” blockchain technology has the ability to make transactions and global commerce a lot more efficient and a lot more transparent, the payments are close to instant and there are no exchange rate fees and there are no bank fees”.
A representative from Brisbane International said:
“for us its really important passengers choice and how they want to interact with an agent about their journey, as well as helping our retailers maintain relevance and resilience against the threat of online shopping. Supporting local startup talent and reinvesting into the big community is big for us and then finally what we can learn from it.”
The third busiest airstrip in the country now encourages individuals traveling to Brisbane or South East Queensland in Australia to spend cryptocurrency at the airport. This comes as a result of the partnership between Brisbane Airport Corporations [BAC] and Australian payment provider ‘travelbybit’. BAC also aims to learn about the cryptocurrency and blockchain solutions so it can possibly help further operations within the international airport.
The BAC representative also said:
“we’re happy to partner with Caleb and help our retailers explore this brave new world of cryptocurrency. A lot of businesses have come to us asking how do we accept crypto and this has in turn attracted a lot of businesses for us.”
A Twitter user commenting about the display board at counters said:
“Good job. But too small icon.”
Brisbane Airport had revealed its plans to be a cryptocurrency friendly airport four months earlier when the Caleb Yeoh had given out a statement telling:
“We are building a genuine use case for cryptocurrencies in the tourism industry. The application of digital currencies in this sector makes a lot of sense. Here at TravelbyBit we are promoting the Bitcoin travel movement. It’s simple, safe, and there are no bank fees.”
