Prague City Tourism has joined forces with Global Payments to enable passengers of the symbolic Tram Line 42 to purchase tickets with digital assets. Passengers can now pay with cryptocurrencies for a city trip with one of the oldest trams through one of the most modern mobile terminals.
The historic tram line 42 transports tourists to Prague's popular tourist attractions. Passengers can now pay for the ticket through the Global Payments service provider's mobile payment card acceptance app. Petr Soukup, IT Director of Prague City Tourism, said:
“We see the introduction of mobile terminals as a big step forward. The terminals will significantly speed up the ticket purchasing process and will also offer tourists a more convenient payment alternative. Unlike cash, almost everyone has a credit card.”
However, in the previous days, Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Hublot also partnered with Bitcoin payment service provider BitPay, allowing its customers to purchase certain products with cryptocurrencies.
