Miguel Palencia, Chief Information Officer at Qtum Foundation said:
“We’re excited that Zeux has added QTUM to its app. This adds a tremendous amount of additional utility for our valued community who can now use QTUM for all point-of-sale payments with merchants that accept Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay […]”
