Crypto.com, an American cryptocurrency exchange, has partnered with Google Pay in the US to allow its users pay for crypto by using GPay. 

According to a press release, in order to use this feature, the user must click on the ‘trade’ option on the homepage and then select buy. After that, under the cash tab, they will find the Gpay button. On clicking that, there will be a checkbox and a disclaimer about the user’s respective card processing fees. Upon agreeing, the user must click continue and confirm, reported Cryptopotato.

In other news, Tim Sweeney, CEO, Epic Games (the maker of Fortnite), said that they are leaving game-centric decisions upon their respective developers and does not wish to impose its views on them. He was replying to a user’s comment about Minecraft banning the use of non-fungible-tokens (NFTs) on community-run Minecraft game servers and whether Epic will do the same or not.

He replied, “Developers should be free to decide how to build their games, and you are free to decide whether to play them. I believe stores and operating system makers shouldn’t interfere by forcing their views onto others. We definitely won’t.”
