Japan city Aizuwakamatsu is going to introduce a native, blockchain-based alternative for those who are practising an innovative virtual currency circulation protocol built by national crypto exchange Decurret. Customers can use the currency for dinner and at the same time earn interest.
Decurret also announced that it will present a blockchain wallet for the city calling it Aizu Wallet. The system will allow settings like exchanging, with stock open for digital coupons, bonus and award credits, “local ventures” and Aizuwakamatsu-established crowdfunding designs.
The company informed that visitors of the city can trade blockchain-supported virtual coupons and tokens before their arrival making the way of paying in the eating places simpler and contactless.
It's worth to mention that Aizuwakamatsu is one of the most attractive cities for tourists. The well-known Tsurugajo castle is there. It's also famous for sake (so-called Japanese rice wine) manufacturing. There are businesses who have been making the beverage over 400 years. 14 of sake producers agreed to enable buyers to pay with blockchain-operating assets at their shops.
