But, wait how will the system work?

While entering the crypto mode can feel like entering troubled waters to some, the virtual currency has spread its wings for wider exchange. According to the system designed by Gucci for such transactions, one can attempt to make crypto payments in-store, through an email generated by the label to the customer. Scanning the QR code enveloped in the email sent,  customers can easily access their crypto wallet for transactions.
