It is now possible that you can buy your favorite soft drink Coca Cola by paying Bitcoin but you need to be in Australia or New Zealand in order to do so because only the citizens of Australia and New Zealand can buy Coke with Bitcoin at the moment. This is possible only because of the recent partnership agreement signed up between Coca Cola Amatil and Centrapay, the digital asset integrator company.
Coca-Cola Amatil now accepts Bitcoin as a payment method
Coca-Cola Amatil is considered as the current major bottler and distribution company present in the Asia Pacific because it supports over 140 brands and more than 170 million customers. The major company is now accepting bitcoin as a payment method. Those who are residents of Australia and New Zealand can use bitcoin to buy Coca Cola.
Australians and Kiwis can buy Coke with bitcoin only through the vending machines of Coca-Cola Amatil. Currently, the company Coca-Cola Amatil has more than 2,000 Coca-Cola vending machines spread across Australia and New Zealand. Bitcoin as a payment method is accepted by all these vending machines.
Another thing that customers need to have is the Sylo Smart Wallet which will be used at the Coca-Cola vending machine while buying a soft drink or any other product via Bitcoin.
A great initiative during the COVID-19 crisis
During the current global pandemic situation, this is a great initiative taken by both companies Coca-Cola Amatil and Centrapay to offer users a contactless experience where users will need to make less physical contact and as a result, the physical interaction will get reduced. Jerome Faury, the CEO at Centrapay, said:
“And it comes with the added benefit of reducing physical contact and addressing the hygiene concerns we’ve all become acutely aware of due to COVID-19.”
Centrapay CEO further stated that they have brought this business only in Australia and New Zealand at the moment but both of the companies want to grow their business all around the whole world. However, their next target is the United States market where they are looking at the moment.
