iPayYou, a Seattle-based Bitcoin wallet, has launched Bitcoin Direct to Starbucks, a new way for addicts of the coffee chain to use Bitcoin. This feature allows users to seamlessly transfer bitcoin from their existing iPayYou wallet to their Starbucks mobile app in USD.
To unlock the Asian market, register now to the iFX EXPO in Hong Kong.
“Bitcoin Direct is the quickest way for a busy iPayYou user to transfer funds to their Starbucks mobile app. After you initiate the transactions, your funds will be ready in seconds,” said Gene Kavner, iPayYou founder and CEO.
“iPayYou is revolutionizing the way consumers spend their bitcoins by focusing on how to integrate bitcoin with the normal habits of our users. Integrating with Starbucks was a no-brainer, as the company currently boasts 24,000 stores and with over one million customers using the Starbucks Mobile Order and Pay program per month. All of those customers can now use bitcoin to easily buy coffee, pastries, and so much more.”
“We want to put bitcoin in the hands of everyone; our goal is a future where bitcoin is the default currency. The best way to get there is to give consumers the ability to incorporate this new form of currency into their everyday lives. The team at iPayYou works tirelessly to achieve this every single day,” said Kavner.
