Glance Technologies rolls out Pay With Bitcoin feature

Glance Technologies has unveiled the new Pay With Bitcoin feature, which allows Glance Pay users to buy Glance Dollars with the cryptocurrency.

Glance Dollars is a credit to be spent at merchants within the Glance Pay ecosystem.

In order to avail the new feature, Glance Pay users need to pair their cryptocurrency wallet with their Glance Pay account.

In announcing the new feature, Glance cited Square data that revealed increasing demand for Bitcoin payments.

The data found Bitcoin transaction sales of $43m in its third quarter of 2018. The figure is said to be $6m more than the previous quarter.

Glance Technologies CEO Desmond Griffin said: “We are continually building out new payment features to ensure our platform is at the forefront of technology.

“Pay With Bitcoin allows Glance users to unlock the value of their crypto assets for use in their everyday lives while seamlessly opening up a new cutting-edge payment method for merchants.”

The latest functionality is said to complement Glance Technologies’ another offering Glance PayMe app.

Earlier this year, the firm upgraded its Glance PayMe app with new features including QR code, bluetooth, and digital invoice.
