逆天的节奏!在日本用支付宝和微信可以支付比特币啦

日本比特币交易所Bitpoint本周三宣布和Nippon Pay合作,为中国三大流行支付服务提供加密货币支付选项。

世界首例

本周三,Bitpoint通知他们的客户,该公司已经“接受与多支付方式服务商Nippon Pay建立商业合作关系,部署虚拟货币结算服务”。有了这次合作之后,中国三大主流支付商微信、支付宝和银联都能在这个新平台上开放比特币和以太币(ETH)支付选项。

Bitpoint写道:

除比特币结算之外,我们计划从2017年8月开始处理ETH商店结算服务。

Bitpoint将这项服务称为“世界首例”,因为这是比特币和ETH首次整合中国流行支付服务。该公司还表示,这是ETH首次进入日本成为一种支付选择。在接受采访时,Nippon Pay总裁进一步说明他们的这项服务是日本首次将微信支付和支付宝整合在一个应用中。

Nippon Pay位于东京,为专注中国移动支付的企业提供支付解决方案。该公司解释道:

除了在实体店的面对面移动支付之外,我们还提供中国三大主流结算服务商的多种支付服务:微信支付、支付宝和银联。

Nippon Pay用户可以通过智能手机app(安卓和iOS)进行不同类型的支付。目前计划在年底之前推出另外两家支付平台。一个是韩国顶尖的移动支付服务Kakao Pay,另一个是泰国和台湾用户群最大的移动支付平台Line Pay。

Nippon Pay平台将微信支付、支付宝和银联与加密货币支付整合是专为在日本的中国游客设计的。中国旅行服务商携程表示,日本是中国游客向往的第三大旅游胜地。日本旅游局收集的数据显示,去年日本接待的中国游客数量达到了637万人次,共花费了1.47万亿日元。

银联是世界上最大的卡片支付组织。他们在中国人民银行(PBOC)的许可下进行运作,还提供移动和线上支付。阿里巴巴集团的支付宝和腾讯集团的微信支付是中国两大主流智能手机支付服务商。支付技术平台Dlocal表示,这三大供应商占据了中国支付市场的70%,2016年间这几大平台的线上支付总额达到了约2.9万亿美元。

Bitpoint的比特币计划

近期与Nippon Pay的合作是Bitpoint比特币商户项目的一部分。今年5月,该公司因和乐桃航空合作,为其提供比特币服务的消息登上了头条。不久之后,这家公司透露,他们正在和潜在的合作伙伴交流,旨在为日本10万多家商店添加比特币支付。本月初,Bitpoint还宣布与日本最大的在线旅行社合作,在今年夏天为1400多家酒店带去比特币支付服务。

Japanese bitcoin exchange Bitpoint announced on Wednesday the partnership with Nippon Pay to offer cryptocurrency payment options alongside China’s three most popular payment services.

“The World’s First”

Bitpoint informed their customers on Wednesday that the company has “agreed to form a business tie-up on the deployment of virtual currency settlement services” with multi-payment service Nippon Pay. With this partnership, China’s three major payment services, Wechat Pay, Alipay, and Unionpay will be joined by bitcoin and ether payment options on the new platform. Bitpoint wrote:

We are planning to begin handling store settlement services by Ethereum from August 2017 in addition to Bitcoin settlement.

Bitpoint is calling this service “the world’s first,” because it is the first time Bitcoin and Ethereum will be offered alongside China’s most popular payment services. The company also claims that this is the first time ether will be offered as a payment option in Japan. In an interview with Payment News, the president of Nippon Pay further made the claim that his service is the first in Japan to offer Wechat Pay and Alipay all in one application.

Bitpoint Adds Bitcoin and Ether Payments to Platform with Unionpay, Wechat Pay and Alipay

The Tokyo-based Nippon Pay offers payment solutions for businesses with a focus on Chinese mobile payments. “In addition to face-to-face mobile payment at physical stores, we also offer a multi-payment service of China’s three major settlement services; Wechat Pay, Alipay, and UnionPay,” the company explained. Nippon Pay users make these different types of payments using a smartphone app, available for Android and iOS devices. Two additional payment platforms are planned for the end of the year. One is the top mobile payment service in South Korea, Kakao Pay. The other is the most used mobile payment platform in both Thailand and Taiwan, Line Pay.

Crypto Payments Alongside Wechat Pay, Alipay, and Unionpay

Bitpoint Adds Bitcoin and Ether Payments to Platform with Unionpay, Wechat Pay and AlipayNippon Pay’s platform is tailored for Chinese tourists visiting Japan. According to a Chinese travel service, Ctrip, Japan is the third most popular destination for the Chinese. The Japan Tourism Agency reported that 6.37 million Chinese visited Japan last year, spending 1.47 trillion yen in the land of the rising sun.

Unionpay is the largest card payment organization in the world. It also offers mobile and online payments and operates under the approval of the People’s Bank of China (PBOC). Alibaba Group’s Alipay and Tencent Group’s Wechat Pay are the two major smartphone payment services in China. These three providers collectively represent over 70 percent of the Chinese market, accounting for approximately $2.9 trillion USD worth of online payments during 2016, according to payments technology platform Dlocal.

Another Point for Bitpoint

This latest venture with Nippon Pay adds to Bitpoint’s list of impressive Bitcoin merchant projects. The company made headlines back in May when it partnered with Peach Aviation to introduce various Bitcoin services to the travel industry. Soon after, the company revealed that it was in talks with potential partners to add bitcoin payments to over 100,000 stores in Japan. Then earlier this month, it revealed a partnership with Japan’s largest online travel agent to bring bitcoin payments to over 1,400 hotels this summer.
