In an update, Blockchain Wallet confirmed its new partnership with BitPay, which will allow for the direct spending of user bitcoin in an effort to increase the ease of cryptocurrency-based payments.

The press release states that BitPay has been “seamlessly” integrated into the existing Blockchain Wallet framework, which clients can use to make payments directly from their application. 

According to the announcement,

"As the largest global crypto payments provider, BitPay and has processed more than $2.8 billion from merchants and B2B customers since 2011."

They added:-

We’re excited to see this new addition connect our Wallet users to the world of merchants that accept Bitcoin (and soon other cryptos) as a payment method — one of the key ways to interact with and grow the digital asset ecosystem.

BitPay is  one of the successful payment platforms in cryptocurerncy space. Bitpay's partnership with Blockchain Wallet could go a long way in spurring greater use for bitcoin outside of a store of value asset or token for price speculation.
