Coca-Cola Amatil Ltd. (CCA) has teamed up with New Zealand-based blockchain payment platform Centrapay to enable customers in Australia and New Zealand to buy Coke using cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

Products across CCA's Coca-Cola vending machine network can be purchased using their Sylo Smart Wallet linked to the Centrapay digital asset platform. This will also make touchless payments possible amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Customers only need to touch the vending machine once to take their purchase.

CCA's customers can use their Sylo Smart Wallet at any one of Coca-Cola's more than 2000 vending machines with a QR code payment sticker. It will accept payments in cryptocurrency or other digital assets with a scan of one's phone's camera when Sylo Smart Wallet is installed.

The Sylo Smart Wallet is a next-generation app that combines a private messenger with a digital wallet.

CCA, one of the world's largest bottlers of Coca-Cola, is the largest bottler and distributor of alcoholic and non-alcoholic ready-to-drink beverages in Asia Pacific, supporting 140 brands and 270 million consumers.

In September 2018, Sylo and Centrapay teamed up to provide an "Uber-style" pay experience at restaurants, public transport, events, parking meters, retail stores, and more across Australasia. It was designed to give new digital payment experiences for consumers.
