European retailer Alza is now accepting Bitcoin payments online, with the help of merchant payment gateway BitcoinPay, and installing Bitcoin ATMs in its outlets in Prague and Bratislava. The machines will enable buying and selling into euros and Slovakian crowns and vice-versa.
“Prague is already one of Bitcoin's most important centres in Europe today. By introducing trading in Bitcoins, we are supporting the growing popularity of this form of payment and the potential of new technology,” says Jan Sadílek, Alza’s Head of Internet Marketing.
He adds that altcoins such as Ethereum or Litecoin could be coming next.
