Partnership with Cantaloupe
Last month, Bakkt partnered with digital payments firm Cantaloupe, enabling users to pay for items at vending machines via Bitcoin. Following the partnership, Bakkt has also integrated into Cantaloupe’s consumer app as a preferred payment option. Users have “Pay with Crypto” and “Pay with Points” features on the application.
Bakkt was founded in 2018 by Intercontinental Exchange, owner of the New York Stock Exchange.
