Gucci now sells stuff for SHIB and other crypto

As reported by U.Today earlier, global fashion brand Gucci has started accepting cryptocurrencies—including meme coins—for its goods at selected outlets in North America.

In order to pay for fashion goods, customers will have to scan a QR code. According to company CEO Marco Bizzarri, Gucci is always open to embrace new technologies. It was not the first time that Gucci had dipped its toes into the blockchain tech. Last May, it ventured to issue an NFT, which was later sold for $25,000.

Last summer, news came out that German-based fashion house Philipp Plein also began to accept cryptocurrencies after striking a partnership deal with crypto payments processor Coinfy.

The fashion industry around the world seems to be eager to start introducing payments.

In winter this year, Italian John Richmond also began collaborating with Shiba Inu.
