09:56Bitcoin just arrived on Apple Pay — here's how to use it
If you’re an Apple Pay user looking to cash out of your Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies after the recent surge, then BitPay just made it a whole lot easier.
The firm, which claims to be the world’s biggest cryptocurrency payment service provider, has just announced that its PrePaid Mastercard can now be added to your Apple Wallet for easy spending in stores and online via Apple Pay.

If you’re not in the Apple ecosystem, you haven’t been forgotten. The company says that it has plans to add the BitPay card to both Google Pay and Samsung Pay by the end of next month.
“We have thousands of BitPay Wallet app customers using the BitPay Card,” said BitPay CEO Stephen Pair. “Adding Apple Pay and soon Google and Samsung Pay makes it easy and convenient to use the BitPay Card in more places from day-to-day items to luxury purchases.”
It’s certainly appealing to people with plenty of cryptocurrency in their wallets, though with Bitcoin rising to a record high of over $48,000 yesterday, plenty of investors will be looking to hold on to their funds to see just how high it can go.
Still, it’s more good news for cryptocurrency, which is enjoying a new surge in interest thanks to Tesla’s big investment and CEO Elon Musk’s talking up of Dogecoin. Amazon could soon be getting in on the act, too, with the company seeking talent to launch a digital currency project.
