Bitcoin Cash (BCH) adoption continues this week as there’s been a slew of announcements associated with BCH acceptance and activism. For instance, a massive electronic billboard in the middle of Tokyo displayed a huge BCH symbol indicating that Japan’s largest luxury watch and jewelry shop, Gem Castle Yukizaki, now accepts bitcoin cash at all 15 locations.
BCH proponents take pride in spreading adoption and during the third and fourth weeks of September, there’s been a bunch of new announcements. The Australian-based rewards platform Livenpay recently announced that bitcoin cash is now supported. The Liven ecosystem allows people to pay for food and beverages via the Liven app which is accepted at 1,000 restaurants, cafes, and bars in Australia.
Liven users can earn 10-30% rewards back from their bill which then can be stored or spent through Liven’s merchant network. The Livenpay app has more than 400,000 users and the platform has a native currency called LVN, an ERC20 token used for reward payouts. “With Livenpay as the ‘on-ramp’, we want to entice users and businesses around the world to enjoy the benefits of using frictionless, global cryptocurrency payments,” Liven CEO William Wong stated during the BCH announcement. The Liven executive continued:
With our future pipeline of cryptocurrency integrations, Bitcoin Cash is the next step to expanding cryptocurrency support and being truly blockchain and currency agnostic.
Four days ago, residents of Tokyo noticed a very large electronic billboard displaying the Bitcoin Cash symbol in the middle of Roppongi at the lavish jewelry shop Gem Castle Yukizaki. The owner of Yukizaki has disclosed the company has been accepting BCH for goods and services at the fine jeweler’s 15 locations throughout Japan. The founder Mr. Yukizaki first revealed accepting BCH back in June and told our news team that a few people had already made purchases using the cryptocurrency.
