Crypto holders in Austria will soon be able to spend their coins at more than 2,500 points of acceptance using A1 Payment.
A1 Payment is one of the largest mobile network operators in Austria.
On July 2 fintech firm Salamantex announced that its Crypto Payment Service Software is now integrated into the A1 Payment platform.
Merchants will start accepting cryptocurrencies such as :
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- Ether (ETH)
Instead of cash or credit cards, in summer 2020.
Salamantex also praised Austria’s recent stance towards switching to cashless payment transactions “as far as possible.”
Markus Pejacsevich, chief operating officer of Salamantex, said:
“Our goal is to make paying with digital currencies at the checkout as easy and natural as we have been used to with credit cards for decades. With A1, we have a partner for the Austria-wide roll-out who, just like us, is convinced of this payment system of the future and works towards making payment with digital assets accessible to the broad masses.”
Salamantex’s Crypto Payment Service Software aims to enable a rollout of the crypto payment service in its neighboring countries as well.
In 2019, A1 started accepting cryptocurrencies as a means of payment in seven selected shops in Austria. This enabled A1 customers to pay for its services using the Chinese payment operators, Alipay and WeChatPay.
