  • PacSun will support 11 cryptocurrencies under BitPay, including bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH) and ether (ETH). The retailer will also accept five USD-pegged stablecoins. BitPay supports leading crypto wallets and exchanges such as Binance, Coinbase and MetaMask.

    “With digital sales doubling since last year, we understand the continued importance of creating an exceptional online shopping experience for our customers,” PacSun President Brie Olson said in a press release.

    PacSun and BitPay will roll out a social media marketing campaign that includes teaming up with TikTok and Instagram influencers for branded content and a branded livestream event with a guest influencer and a PacSun executive.

    The PacSun tie-up is the latest retail move for BitPay, which signed a deal with Verifone last week to roll out crypto payments to U.S. merchants that use Verifone’s payments software.
