Brisbane Airport was reported to have made an unprecedented move when it announced that it will soon be accepting cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum as payments.

BNE, Australia’s third-busiest airport, partnered with Queensland-based cryptocurrency startup TravelbyBit to implement point-of-sale payment systems across retail stores at two of the airport’s terminals.

Roel Hellemons, Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) general manager of strategic planning and development, said that it made sense to accept cryptocurrencies as payments since a lot of travelers who use the airport make money off trading such currencies.
