Cryptocurrency payment services provider BitPay announced Wednesday (Aug. 11) in a press release that U.S. BitPay Prepaid Mastercard holders can add their cards to Google Wallet and spend their Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency on contactless purchases in the app, online and in person with Android phones, tablets and watches using Google Pay.
Support for BitPay will come to Apple Pay and Samsung Pay soon, the release stated.
“Consumers are seeking more new places and ways to spend their crypto, and we want to make their experience fast, easy and secure,” said BitPay CEO Stephen Pair. “Adding Google Pay makes it easy and convenient for customers to live life on crypto and benefit from the increased value crypto provides from day-to-day items to luxury purchases.”
The BitPay Wallet app allows customers to manage, protect, track and spend 12 forms of cryptocurrency, including Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum as well as several stablecoins. Customers can turn cryptocurrency into dollars, and then load the money onto their cards to spend wherever Mastercard debit cards are accepted, make purchases online or withdraw cash from ATMs.
