Restoration to Accelerate Cryptocurrency Payment Adoption
LYZI is a great app around Blockchain services, based on Tezos technology, a public and energy-efficient blockchain. The application includes a wallet for managing and buying/selling crypto-assets, a crypto payment functionality as well as loyalty and cashback offers.
If it is currently complex for a merchant or restaurateur to accept payments in cryptocurrencies given the volatility of the prices, LYZI responds to this problem by offering a reversion in local currency directly to the professional’s account free of charge, daily way. Thus, the customer indicates the amount in euros on the application and the equivalent in cryptocurrency is displayed on the screen generating a QR Code. The restaurateur only has to scan the QR Code to validate the transaction and be paid in euros.

Both Retail and catering are sectors that are part of French daily life and are tending to accelerate the adoption of this method of payment. Through these two test projects, we aim to demonstrate the simplicity of payment in crypto and allow these brands to capture new customers. »
