星巴克或将在今年内开始接受比特币支付

Emily Price 2018年08月08日

这项服务推出后,消费者可以使用数字钱包,把比特币和其它货币转化为能在星巴克消费的美元。

星巴克正在与微软开展技术合作,以后你买三份浓度的超大杯拿铁时,不再需要现金,用比特币就能结账了。

这两家公司同时还与美国第二大期货交易所——洲际交易所、以及波士顿咨询集团合作,四方联手成立了一家名为Bakkt的公司,目标是让个人和企业都能购买、出售、存储及使用加密数字货币。预计该服务将于今年11月推出。

星巴克的合作与支付副总裁玛丽亚·史密斯在一份声明中称:“作为零售行业的旗舰企业,星巴克将为开发实用、规范、受信任的APP发挥重要力量,使顾客能把数字资产转化为美元并在星巴克消费。星巴克有1500多万星享俱乐部会员,作为移动支付领域的领袖之一,我们为了给顾客提供更多的支付方式而不断创新。”

这项服务推出后,消费者可以使用数字钱包,把比特币和其它货币转化为能在星巴克和其它零售商处用来购物的美元。

这步棋将让星巴克加入不断扩大的、接受比特币作为支付方式的企业阵营中。然而有几家此前接受比特币付款的公司,后来决定不再支持数字加密货币。例如,在线旅游网站Expedia今年4月停止接受比特币,部分原因是比特币等数字货币的价值波动过于剧烈。(财富中文网)

Starbucks is working with Microsoft on technology that would allow you to pay for triple venti lattes with Bitcoin rather than cash.

The two companies, along with Intercontinental Exchange and BCG, are partnering on a new company called Bakkt that would let both individuals and institutions buy, sell, store, and spend cryptocurrencies. The service is expected to launch in November.

“As the flagship retailer, Starbucks will play a pivotal role in developing practical, trusted and regulated applications for consumers to convert their digital assets into US dollars for use at Starbucks,” Maria Smith, vice president of partnerships and payments for Starbucks, said in a statement. “As a leader in Mobile Pay to our more than 15 million Starbucks Rewards members, Starbucks is committed to innovation for expanding payment options for our customers.”

The service would allow customers to use a digital wallet and convert Bitcoin and other currencies into dollars that can be used to make purchases at Starbucks as well as other retailers.

The move would add Starbucks to a growing list of businesses that accept Bitcoin as a form of payment. Several companies that have previously accepted Bitcoin have since decided to stop supporting the cryptocurrency. In April, for example, Expedia dropped support for cryptocurrency in partly due to the volatility in value for digital currencies like Bitcoin.
