Grab has announced that its services will now offer the option of topping up GrabPay ewallets in cryptocurrencies powered by Triple-A

From arranging deliveries to booking rides or paying for coffee at their nearest shop, digital currency owners in Singapore would not be able to use digital currencies for everyday transactions. Triple-A, which is licensed in US, EU and Singapore, handles the conversion of digital currencies into dollars with bank settlements instantly. 

Various companies have been moving to add crypto as a payment option as digital assets and blockchain are viewed as having a role to play in the future of transactions. Grab said it believes that digital money has the potential to help consumers, driver- and delivery-partners, and small businesses in its ecosystem by lowering the cost of transactions and improving security and fraud controls. While it’s still in nascent stages of adoption, Grab has been conducting pilots to explore the potential benefits of digital payment tokens, through collaborative efforts with industry partners including Amazon, Circle, StraitsX, Triple-A and UOB. 

In late January, the payment firm teamed up with bills payment platform AXS to allow people to use four digital currencies for 550 of the 600 AXS payment services. It means that members of the public can make top-ups or pay their recurring bills, such as road tax and enrichment class fees, in four cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin, Ether, USDT or USDC.
