Thousands of Australian restaurants are said to be getting ready to accept Bitcoin Cash (BCH) as a crypto payment method, owing to its association with crypto-payments gateway and wallet, LivenPay. LivenPay’s native token, LVN, is also getting listed on exchange.bitcoin.com soon and ZB.com today.
LivenPay Chooses BCH
This announcement was made by Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com, who updated his Twitter handle with the development. According to Roger, LivenPay has chosen BCH as the preferred cryptocurrency for making payment at thousands of real-world restaurants across Australia.
LivenPay Platform is an app which was designed to cater to the needs of customers that wish to make crypto payments at lifestyle and dining industry merchants. Platform users can choose to pay in crypto at the merchants that have been listed by the LivenPay team on the current application or they can participate in the invitations and celebrations arrangements created through the application.
Customers also receive between 10% to 30% of their transaction amount back in LVN, which they can use for making payments in the LVN network. Some of LivenPay’s existing customers include Ajisen Ramen, PappaRich Malaysian Delight, Nene Chicken,ChaTime, Lord of the Fries and Sumo Salad.

Now, LivenPay will reap the benefit of this collaboration with Ver through the listing of LVN on Bitcoin.com’s exchange. The token is also getting listed on ZB.com today.
