Visitors to Brisbane Airport can pay for goods using cryptocurrency! Individuals traveling to Brisbane or the South East Queensland area in Australia can spend various cryptocurrencies at the Brisbane International Airport. The airport is the third busiest airstrip in the country and you can use cryptocurrencies at over 30 retail stories.
The cryptocurrency acceptance is due to Brisbane Airport Corporations’ (BAC) partnership with the Australian payment provider Travelbybit. On May 29, the Youtube channel, Nugget’s News Australia, visited the Brisbane airport when the new system was implemented. The host of the video Alex talked detailed that Brisbane is the first international airport that’s entirely “crypto-friendly.”
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.
Congrats @BrisbaneAirport. World’s 1st #crypto friendly international airport! @TravelbyBit @roomofsatoshi #Brisbane #brisbaneairport #bitcoin #CryptoNews #ausbiz #auspol #toursim #travel pic.twitter.com/sIDWJvtBF8
