Remixpoint to Start Crypto Payments for Tokyo Limousines, Sources Say

  • Trial service begins this month for Tokyo airport rides
  • Payments may be expanded beyond limos to include taxis

Remixpoint Inc. is working with Hinomaru Limousine Co. to let passengers use digital currencies to pay for rides between Tokyo and the Japanese capital’s two major airports, people familiar with the matter said.

A trial service will start this month and initially cover rides between Tokyo’s 23 wards and either Haneda or Narita airports, according to the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private information. A formal announcement is planned for Tuesday with the service to accept payments in Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum, the people said.
