Australian Airport will Allow You to Shop in its Terminal using Bitcoin, Dash & Ethereum

When travellers arrive at or depart from Brisbane Airport (BNE), they will soon experience an unprecedented digital currency airport experience.

BNE in partnership with a number of terminal retailers is combining its community vision with innovation by working with TravelbyBit to bring decentralised Blockchain-enabled payments into its terminal shopping.

Travellers will soon be able to use TravelbyBit’s cryptocurrency payment system, including Bitcoin, Dash, Ethereum and other digital currencies, to dine and shop at stores such as Botanist, Spoon, Windmill & Co., and Forte Espresso, as well as nine awpl stores including Australian Way, Merino Collection, Carry On, Dreamtime Journey and multiple News Travels across both terminals.

Digital currency payments keep the user’s personal identity private and eliminate third-party interference, allowing for very low transaction fees, exchange rates, and transfer time.

The partnership reinforces Brisbane Airport’s aim to promote community projects, support local businesses, improve the passenger experience, and become a leader in the airport digital innovation space. Source
