Bitpay Cardholders Can Now Use Apple Pay

The announcement states:

The company explained that while new Bitpay customers wait for their plastic card to arrive, they can add virtual cards to Apple Wallet via the Bitpay Wallet app to start using Apple Pay immediately.

Moreover, Bitpay announced that “Support for Google Pay and Samsung Pay is planned for later this quarter.†CEO Stephen Pair commented, “We have thousands of Bitpay Wallet app customers using the Bitpay card who are always looking for new places and ways to spend their crypto.â€

He elaborated:

The Bitpay card converts cryptocurrency into fiat currency, which can be used to pay for purchases. Its wallet app supports funding from bitcoin, bitcoin cash, and ether, as well as four dollar-pegged stablecoins, USDC, GUSD, PAX, and BUSD.
