October 11, 2019

Alchemy, a payments and technology service provider announced recently that it is launching a hybrid payment solution to connect cryptocurrency with retailers worldwide.

It will be integrated with Qfpay, a well known third-party payment company providing payment services for more than 1.2 million affiliated merchants.

Bitcoin Cash Popularity in Asia

Alchemy’s point-of-sale (PoS) has been implemented in Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong so far.

It hopes to cover retailers throughout Asia and Europe. The payment provider includes 30 digital assets including bitcoin cash (BCH).

The company made the announcement that the digital payments will be settled in local fiat to mitigate crypto volatility.

Just recently, the @Bitcoincashcity Twitter account shared a video clip of someone making a purchase using BCH with the Alchemy PoS system.

Alchemy’s Expansion

The firm plans to expand over the next few years to Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey, the UAE, South Korea, and the Philippines.

Alchemy is attempting to make headway in the Middle East, specifically in Dubai. “Currently, businesses in most parts of Dubai are able to be paid by Qfpay’s POS or QR code,” Alchemy’s press release details. “Besides, the technology of Burj Khalifa’s ticket payment is also provided by Qfpay.”

“This is a game-changer for the global cryptocurrency market as it propels cryptocurrencies towards truly becoming a global currency. It creates real-life use cases for cryptocurrencies as crypto holders can now spend their cryptocurrencies to purchase goods and services in addition to their investment functions,” said Patrick Ngan, co-founder, and CEO of Alchemy.

“We will continue to integrate new and popular cryptocurrencies such as Facebook’s Libra to drive usage and liquidity for cryptocurrencies.”
