What can you buy with Bitcoin? Luxury. At least in Switzerland, at least a hint of it. For example, the Swiss luxury hotel "The Dolder Grand" announces that it will soon accept payments in crypto currencies. In cooperation with the app "inapay" you can pay for the services there with the leading crypto currency according to market capitalization.
Crypto currencies sneak slowly into the middle of society. Here and there - at least outside of Germany - more and more Bitcoin-ATM are appearing. Beyond that the Blockchain technology is to help now to put Whiskyfälschern the handicraft. Also the introduction of futures for the crypto currency Ripples, namely XRP, could provide in the last days for attention.
The Dolder Grand accepts Bitcoin
Now there are news about adaptation from Switzerland. From now on it is possible to pay with Bitcoin in the noble hotel "The Dolder Grand". The leading crypto currency by market capitalization can be transferred to the hotel via the mobile app "inapay". The app serves as an intermediary and converts the crypto currencies directly into Swiss francs so that there is no risk of exchange rate fluctuations for the hotel itself.
André Meier, Director of Finance of Dolder AG, is pleased about the introduction of the new payment option in a press release available to BTC-ECHO:
We are always on the lookout for ways to offer our guests more. And many improvements in recent years have only been made possible by new developments in technology. Crypto currencies will be indispensable in the future and it is therefore a matter of course for us to expand the range of possibilities in the payment process.
As you can see from the press release, the payment option will go live on May 1st. Furthermore, the payment option has been developed within the framework of a pilot project with inacta AG. Plans for the future include carrying payments with crypto currencies into the middle of society. Roger Darin, Head of Crypto Assets at inacta AG, comments accordingly:
Bitcoin will increasingly establish itself internationally and in Switzerland as a means of payment. With inapay, restaurants, hotels and retail outlets can now also accept Bitcoin payments.
The Dolder Hotel is the first step in this direction. Anyone who wants to pay for overnight stays, food, drinks or spa treatments in the future can do so with Bitcoin.
