可口可乐Amatil X投资了数字资产和支付平台Centrapay

2020年9月3日,在新西兰初创公司的种子融资阶段,可口可乐Amatil X投资了数字资产和支付平台Centrapay。


Amatil X公司成立于2018年,是为大型瓶装公司可口可乐公司(Coca-Cola Amatil)创建的,旨在与初创科技公司合作并投资。它的目的是寻找新的解决方案和商业模式,在未来可能的工作。可口可乐公司拥有该灌装公司30%的股份。


Amatil X的总裁Alix Rimington透露,他们已经与Centrapay合作,允许客户通过Sylo智能钱包使用数字资产或加密货币支付他们的产品。在这个项目中,顾客可以在任何一台带有二维码支付标签的自动售货机使用这款钱包。


Centrapay的目标是让数字资产大众化,最初构建的API是为了直接连接消费者应用程序和商家系统。


Centrapay的一个关键方面是它对价值交换的看法。该公司首席执行长福里(Jerome Faury)说,我们今天所知的全球货币供应正在“迅速演变”。未来10年,价值交换的方式极有可能发生巨大变化。Centrapay致力于“数字资产的创造、分发和支付”,在这个过程中取代中介的角色。


福里还谈到了两家公司之间的“强大战略结盟”。Faury说:“Centrapay和Coca-Cola Amatil都致力于保护消费者的隐私和数据所有权,同时增加商业价值。”在这项投资中,Amatil X确实对更多地参与最新的价值交换方式表现出了浓厚的兴趣。


可口可乐Amatil并不是第一个采用区块链的可乐瓶装商。在美国,可口可乐北美服务公司(CONA)正在尝试使用公共以太坊来提高供应链透明度。


过去几年,越来越多的大品牌开始接受加密货币支付。虽然像Square这样的初创公司已经是早期的采收者,但Paypal在几个月前就证实了它正在开发数字资产和加密货币的能力。

 

On 3 September 2020, Coca-Cola Amatil X invested in digital asset and payment platform Centrapay, during the New Zealand startup’s seed funding round. 

Established in 2018, Amatil X was created for the major bottling firm Coca-Cola Amatil to collaborate and invest in technology startups. It aims to find new solutions and business models to work with in the future potentially. Coca-Cola owns a 30% stake in the bottling company. 

Head of Amatil X, Alix Rimington, revealed they’ve already been working with Centrapay, allowing customers to pay for their products using digital assets or cryptocurrencies via the Sylo Smart Wallet. In this project, customers could use the Wallet at any of Amatil’s vending machines ‘with a QR code payment sticker.’

Centrapay’s goal is to democratize digital assets, initially building the API’s to connect consumer apps and merchant systems directly.

A key aspect of Centrapay is its vision of value exchange. CEO Jerome Faury remarks how ‘the global money supply’ as we know it today is ‘evolving rapidly.’ The way value is exchanged is most likely going to change dramatically in the next ten years. Centrapay dedicates themselves to the ‘creation, distribution, and payment of digital assets,’ replacing intermediaries’ roles in this process. 

Faury also spoke of the ‘strong strategic alignment’ between the two firms. “Both Centrapay and Coca-Cola Amatil are committed to preserving consumers’ privacy and data ownership rights, whilst increasing business value,” said Faury. Amatil X has indeed demonstrated a keen interest in becoming more involved in the newest ways of value exchange in this investment. 

Coca-Cola Amatil isn’t the first Coke bottler to explore blockchain. In the U.S., Coke One North America Services (CONA) is trialing using public ethereum for supply chain transparency. 

Over the past few years, more large brands have been accepting cryptocurrency payments. While startups like Square have been early adopters, Paypal confirmed it was developing digital asset and cryptocurrency capabilities just a couple of months ago.
