Peach to ac­cept bit­coin as pay­ment

New Straits Times - - Business | World -

TOKYO: Peach Avi­a­tion Ltd will be­come the first Ja­panese car­rier to ac­cept bit­coin as pay­ment for air­line tick­ets as the dis­count air­line aims to at­tract more tourists from other parts of Asia. The cryp­tocur­rency could be used to book seats start­ing at the end of the year, said Peach yes­ter­day, adding that a change in Ja­pan’s law on fund set­tle­ments last month helped fa­cil­i­tate the move. The car­rier also aimed to in­crease tie-ups with lo­cal gov­ern­ments and re­gional firms to help spread us­age of the cur­rency, said the air­line. Agen­cies
