As Coindesk reports, more than 2,000 vending machines in Australia and New Zealand will let customers buy a Coke with bitcoin.

Purportedly, it is the result of co-operation between Coca-Cola Amatil, the Asia-Pacific bottling giant, and the digital assets platform Centrapay.

How to Buy It?

Transactions go through New Zealand-based Centrapay and Sylo Smart Wallet, which currently has about 250,000 users. Apparently, newcomers can download the Sylo app on their smartphones. Next step is to add bitcoin to their wallets. Lastly, scan a QR code and purchase Amatil products.

Sylo co-founder and business manager Dorian Johannink said the digital wallet can typically store, send and receive cryptocurrencies including bitcoin and ERC20-compatible tokens. This includes their own SYLO listed on Hong Kong exchange KuCoin.

But for the Coke scenario, it’s just supported for bitcoin initially for the trial run, but we may extend the functionality,” Johannink said for the Coindesk.

Connecting Crypto to the World

Buying a Coca-Cola with Bitcoin sounds catchy but isn’t easy. However, Sylo’s main focus is not on bitcoin as a payment form. They have the vision of connecting crypto to the real world.

Let’s see how this initial run goes,” Johannink said. “People are testing it out now. If it goes smoothly, we can roll it out pretty quickly.”
