Switzerland: Online Shopping With Crypto
Digitec Galaxus, the biggest online retailer in the country, has started to accept crypto payments. Now, how cool is that? Instead of endless talks about strategies on crypto mass adoption, Digitec Galaxus just made crypto payment option available. That’s it, that’s how to promote crypto to the masses.
For starters, there are two online shops within Digitec Galaxus AG, which accept 10 most popular cryptocurrencies. According to the company’s website: “while shopping, if your purchase price exceeds 200 francs, you have the option to pay with cryptocurrencies. What arrives on Digitec’s end are Swiss francs”. Easy.
The transfer takes a few minutes and is fee-free on the Digitec’s side. Those two online stores which now accept crypto payments are Digitec and Galaxus. One specializes in consumer electronics and IT goods, while the other is the biggest online department store in Switzerland. Now, this is incredibly cool and exciting. Hopefully, more countries will follow Switzerland’s example and propel crypto to the masses for real.
