日本多家胶囊酒店开始接受比特币支付

自从日本政府开始承认比特币之后,该国越来越多的商户都接受了其为一种支付选项。其中也包括一些日本标志性的胶囊酒店。

胶囊酒店在日本遍地都是。《福布斯》曾经报道过:“它们不像其它的住所,每个房间都有十几个床位,在独立的空间里有床、灯,有时甚至有电视。”

日本比特币交易所Coincheck为两家胶囊酒店提供了商户支付方案。

今年3月,位于东京的Anshin Oyado成为了首家接受比特币支付的胶囊酒店。据Coincheck所说,这在日本酒店行业也是首例。目前东京地区有5家Anshin Oyado胶囊酒店。

而另一家酒店Comicap是从上周五开始提供这一服务的。Runsystem旗下的Comicap胶囊旅馆共有两家。

Comicap和Anshin Oyado的经营者同时都有其它的业务尚未开始接受比特币支付,Kawabata表示,这两家酒店集团应该是把Coincheck在胶囊酒店的支付服务作为一次试验,然后在未来将比特币支付扩展到其它服务中。

Coincheck曾表示该公司“持有99%的比特币支付市场份额”。这家公司的网站中提到,每笔比特币交易他们会收取1%的费用,不过这仅仅相当于信用卡交易费用的五分之一到三分之一。比特币支付随后会兑换成日元,并且存储到商户的账户中。

 

Since the Japanese government started recognizing bitcoin, an increasing number of merchants in the country have adopted it as a payment option. Among them are a couple of Japan’s iconic and popular capsule hotels.

Capsule Hotels Accepting Bitcoin

Capsule hotels, sometimes called pod hotels, are found all over Japan. “They’re unlike any other accommodation: Individual pods, sometimes dozens to a room, each a self-contained mini-hotel room, with a bed, lights, and sometimes even a TV,” Forbes contributor Geoffrey Morrison described.

The luxury capsule hotel Anshin Oyado started accepting bitcoin in March, while the Comics & Capsule Hotel Comicap began accepting it as of this Friday.

In an earlier interview, Coincheck told Bitcoin.com that the company “holds 99% of the bitcoin payment market share.” The company charges 1% fee per transaction on bitcoin payments, which is only “1/3 to 1/5 of the credit card transaction fee,” its website details. Payments are converted to yen and deposited in merchants accounts immediately.

Comics & Capsule Hotel Comicap

Opened in February, this 60-room accommodation in Kyoto describes itself as “a cosmopolitan relaxation space with tens of thousands of comic books, mainly in the form of capsule hotel style accommodation.” There are over 30,000 comic books on the premises and a room there can cost as low as ¥2,000 (approximately $18) per person when booked online.

Runsystem also operates another Comicap hotel of the same concept which is located in Sapporo, the largest city on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. The company also owns Jiyuukuukan, a “popular Manga cafe in Japan,” Coincheck Business Development Lead Kagayaki Kawabata told Bitcoin.com. These related businesses, however, have not yet decided to accept bitcoin. The Comics & Capsule Hotel Comicap announced this week:

From Friday June 16, guests can pay with bitcoin for hotel bookings at the facility in Kyoto Shin-Kyogoku. Bitcoin payments is facilitated by Coincheck.

Luxury Capsule Hotel Anshin Oyado

Popular Japanese Capsule Hotels That Embrace BitcoinIn March, the Tokyo-based Anshin Oyado, operated by the Sanza Group, became the first capsule hotel to accept bitcoin. It is also the very first in the hotel industry in Japan to do so, according to Coincheck, who facilitates the hotel’s bitcoin payments.

There are five Anshin Oyado capsule hotels in the Tokyo area. The one that accepts bitcoin is in front of Shinjuku station, which is the world’s busiest metro station based on the daily number of passengers passing through, according to the Guinness World Records. A room there costs between ¥4,980 and ¥6,180 (~$45-$55), according to its website.

“This company also operates the karaoke box chain Pasera which is pretty popular in Japan,” Kawabata shared with Bitcoin.com.

While operators of both Comicap and Anshin Oyado capsule hotels have other businesses that do not currently accept bitcoin, Kawabata noted:

They have decided to use Coincheck Payment experimentally for capsule hotels. They may expand the bitcoin payment to other services as well.
