Vending machines operated by major Asia-Pacific soft-drink bottler and distributor Coca-Cola Amatil will now be accepting payments in crypto.

The development follows a new deal with digital asset platform Centrapay announced on Monday.

Coca-Cola Amatil’s network of 2,000-plus vending machines in Australia and New Zealand will enable consumers to spend their crypto by using their smartphone cameras to scan a QR code payment sticker, provided they have the Sylo Smart Wallet installed.

Centrapay’s CEO Jerome Faury has pointed to greater awareness of the need to reduce physical contact in retail locations due to the global COVID-19 public health crisis.

The company’s deal with Coca-Cola Amatil — ostensibly one of the world’s largest bottlers of the Coca-Cola range, serving 270 million consumers — has been presented as a first step in bringing easier access to crypto for global consumers.

“Now we’ve shown how it can work in Australia and New Zealand, we’re looking to grow the business globally. We’ve established a presence in North America and will be targeting the U.S. market next,” Faury said.

Now this is some real innovation. Might actually make me start drinking Coke again!
