Now passengers of public transport in 37 towns across Argentina can replenish credit score on their transport SUBE cards with bitcoin. This was made possible thanks to the cooperation of Alto Viaje, which is a framework for transit card, and FINTECH companies Bitex.
It is a small step for Bitcoin, a giant leap for kriptonyte. Integration payments in bitcoin and cryptocurrencies for goods and services is not something new. But such large-scale coverage of the population as commuters and buses. This is a serious promotion of digital assets.
“We believe that this project is important because it brings people such important technologies as Bitcoin and demonstrates the true value and its application in everyday life,” said Director of marketing Bitex Manuel Bodra.
The main task of the Alto Viaje – to make the process of recharge cards as affordable as possible. Prior to the adoption of bitcoin payments platform accept only PayPal, soon it will also handle payments through the local payment RapiPago operator.
