Apple To Create New Feature That Integrates Crypto Payments

10th Feb, 2022

Apple is set to allow users of its Apple Pay platform to transact with cryptocurrencies.

This will arrive with “Tap-to-pay,” a new feature that will allow iPhone users to make contactless payments.

Tap-to-pay will essentially integrate third-party digital wallets to allow payments with crypto.

Tap to pay will also allow merchants to accept payments made with contactless credit and debit cards without requiring any additional hardware or payment terminal.

The feature will level on near-field communication (NFC) to make contactless payments possible.

Apple Pay is only the latest payments platform to show interest in integrating crypto. Visa, PayPal, and MasterCard have rolled out their crypto payments integrations.
