With the integration of BitPay on Georgia Tech’s campus, students can now purchase concessions with bitcoin at home football games. Georgia Tech is the first university in the world to accept BitPay. Saturday’s #GTWhiteOut game vs. Miami kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Concessions locations accepting Bitpay point-of-sale transactions are located behind sections 113, 115 and 132 in the North stands.
The BuzzCard Center, located at Barnes & Noble in Technology Square, will be home to a Bitcoin-enabled point purchase terminal, which will allow for declining balance account deposits using bitcoin as a method of payment. BuzzCard holders, who chose to use bitcoin, will now be able to purchase food and goods at almost all locations on the Tech campus.
Students can also download their own “Jacket Wallet”, created by bitcoin wallet provider Pheeva. Click here to download “Jacket Wallet” from the iTunes Store.
