Gucci to Accept Crypto Payments in Select US Stores
Gucci will accept cryptocurrency payments in some select US stores.
Gucci will accept cryptocurrencies in five stores in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta and Las Vegas from later this month. Customers will receive an email with a QR code to pay via their digital asset wallet, an app used to store their cryptocurrencies.
According to Vogue Business, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Wrapped Bitcoin, Litecoin, Shiba Inu and five stable coins pegged to the US dollar will be accepted, as well as Dogecoin, the famous “meme” cryptocurrency originally created as a joke in 2013.
Retailers who accept cryptocurrencies can convert them into government-issued currency or keep them in the original form. The luxury fashion house plans to expand the new policy to other stores in the near future.
Besides retail stores, Gucci has high-end restaurants with celebrity chefs in its portfolio. In March, it opened an Osteria da Massimo Bottura restaurant in Seoul, Korea, marking the luxury brand’s third location outside of Italy following Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and Tokyo.
