Australians can deposit money for a local Bitcoin exchange at the country’s different post office because of a new collaboration. According to a recent announcement, customers of the local cryptocurrency exchange Bitcoin.com.au will be able to pay for Bitcoin at more than 3,500 Australian Post offices. The exchange’s C.E.O. Holger Arians said that he believes the new payment option will make some people more comfortable buying crypto.
“Paying for Bitcoin at a Post office feels safer than transferring funds online.”
The C.E.O. of the crypto exchange Holger Arians said that for many people, paying for Bitcoin at an Australia Post office feels safer than transferring funds online, particularly for new buyers. “We’re proud of this partnership and would like to thank Australia Post for their continued openness to new technologies,” he added. The users of the exchange were already able to pay for Bitcoin at 1500 retail outlets in the Blueshyft payment network. Bitcoin automated teller machines recently crossed the milestone of 8,000 units installed around the world.

The vending machines in New Zealand and Australia display Q.R. codes, and customers can scan them with their smartphones when using the crypto payments and messenger app called Sylo.
