Luxury Brands and BTC

Hublot surely is noty the first luxury brand to accept crypto and BTC payments. Most renowned luxury brands have started adopting crypto payments, specifically BTC way long back. This includes Gucci, Balenciaga, Farfetch, and much more.

Accordingly, Hublot’s competitor from the same stables of Switzerland, Tag Heuer has also announced that it will also commence the acceptance of BTC payments upon its online platform.

The main stream for all such brands to accept BTC payments goes to the numerous crypto and BTC payment firms and platforms like BitPay. Seems, they strike upon a deal with such luxury brands, promoting their payment system, as well as BTC.
