Techspace - Following Bitcoin and Ethereum, ApeCoin is now available on the Gucci payment methods using BitPay. According to the tweet, ApeCoin can be used at selected offline Gucci stores in the US. The news was confirmed by Gucci via its official Twitter on Tuesday (8/2). Gucci said it is another step on its exploration of Web 3.0. 

This was possible because of the partnership deal between the brand and BitPay, which was announced in May. In addition, BitPay declared that it added ApeCoin and Euro Coin (EUROC) on its platform today. Through this partnership, Gucci has now accepted ten cryptocurrencies on its payment system. Within this news, Gucci will be the first store that accepts ApeCoin as a payment method.

Gucci Move Into Web 3.0

Gucci has been showing its interest towards the Web 3.0 ecosystem, which started from “SUPERGUCCI”, a collaborative NFT between Superplastic NFT and Gucci in January this year. After that, Gucci decided to move further into Web 3.0 by releasing its own virtual world on The Sandbox, part of the Ethereum metaverse game. Still related to NFT, Gucci held its digital exhibition to celebrate Gucci’s 100- year history with SuperRare, an NFT artwork platform.
