Coin transactions are processed through the Binance Pay payment system, developed by the world’s largest digital asset exchange by trading volume. It allows users and businesses around the world to spend, send and receive over 70 digital currencies such as bitcoin.
To take advantage of the service, customers must download and install the Binance app, go to the ANC website, place an order and cover the bill with Binance Pay. Then they can receive the products or pick them up at any store in the chain.
ANC maintains a network of pharmacies under its brand name and connects several other Ukrainian chains such as Blagodiya, Kopiyka and Shar@. It has stores in more than 130 cities of Ukraine and has more than 7 million customers annually. Crypto payments will initially be available in the capital, Kyiv.
Over the past few years, Ukraine has established itself as a regional leader in crypto adoption. Since Russia launched its offensive in late February, the country’s government and volunteer organizations have relied on cryptocurrency donations for defense and humanitarian initiatives that have also been supported by industry.
Binance Pay has used other Ukrainian companies to enable crypto payments. In September of this year, Varus, a supermarket chain with more than 100 stores in Ukraine, integrated a payment system to offer its customers in Kyiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia and other cities the opportunity to use coins for groceries.
And in August, Ukrainian tech shops Tehnoezh and Stylus introduced crypto payments through Whitepay, a similar payment platform developed by Whitebit, a Ukrainian cryptocurrency exchange.
