Gucci is now selling stuff for SHIB and other cryptos
As reported by U.Today earlier, global fashion brand Gucci has started accepting cryptocurrencies, including meme coins, for its products at select outlets in North America.
In order to pay for fashion items, customers will need to scan a QR code. According to the company’s CEO, Marco Bizzarri, Gucci is always open to new technologies. This wasn’t the first time that Gucci dipped its toes into blockchain technology. Last May, he ventured to issue an NFT, which was later sold for $25,000.
Last summer, news broke that German fashion house Philipp Plein has also started accepting cryptocurrencies after striking a partnership deal with crypto payments processor Coinfy.
The fashion industry around the world seems eager to start introducing payments.
In winter this year, the Italian John Richmond also started collaborating with Shiba Inu.
