Privacy-focused cryptocurrency Zcoin is now available for spending in Thailand at any merchant registered with the Thai QR code system through Satang App.

According to an announcement published by Zcoin on August 15th, over 50 million users of Satang App can now use Zcoin at local merchants both in-store and online by scanning a QR code. As reported by Cointelegraph, the system instantly settles transactions and allows merchants to be paid in Thai Baht via regulated exchange Satang Pro.
