Crypto Industry News:
By early 2020, Bitcoin payment support will be launched at more than 25,000 sales outlets for 30 French retailers, including the sports giant Decathlon and the Sephora cosmetics store. The French cryptocurrency news portal Cryptoglobe announced the progress announced during the Paris Retail Week.
The new cryptocurrency payment system is launched as part of a partnership between the Global POS point of sale technology provider, the EasyWallet application and the Easy2Play payment platform. While payments will be made in Bitcoin, the funds will be automatically converted into euros at the time of sale.
Conversion services are to be provided by two partners, Deskoin and Savitar, who are currently applying for the accreditation of a digital service provider under the French PACTE Act.
In addition to Decathlon and Sephora, well-known companies joining the initiative include Boulanger, Foot Locker, World House, Intersport, Cultura, Maisons du Monde and Norauto.
“This is an important symbolic step in the evolution of payment methods in France. However, it is also more than a symbol, because what we provide for 25,000 sales points is the possibility of entering the world of Economy 3.0 safely,” said Stephane Djiane, CEO and founder of Global POS.
