Japanese online retail giant Rakuten is currently believed to be working on a cryptocurrency payment solution that will be integrated into its upcoming app upgrade. Speculation mounted after the company’s recently released financial report highlighted several key features that will be available on its new app version.
Notable features include credit card integration as well as QR code payments. Details reveal that the app’s Rakuten Payment feature will have two major options, Rakuten Edy, which is the firm’s credit card processing service, and Everybody’s Bitcoin.
The company’s communiqué states that one platform will include “all payment solutions.” This statement, together with the Everybody’s Bitcoin payment service inclusion, seems to affirm that a crypto payment option is on the horizon.
