South Korea’s leading crypto exchange Bithumb and a mobile payment service provider Pay’s has made a partnership with the aim to make cryptocurrencies available at thousands of outlets in the country.

The two companies will work to make cryptocurrencies available at 6 000 outlets in the first half of the year and 8 000 by the end of the year.

About 200 franchise brands will allow customers to use the service to pay at 6 000 outlets across the country.
