Crypto will reportedly be added to the list of accepted payment options across 2,500 Austria-based vendors for local crypto users, via A1 Payment – a major mobile network operator in the nation.
Specifically, local fintech startup Salamantex has reportedly disclosed the details of its Crypto Payment Service Software finalized integration into the A1 Payment platform, enabling Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) or Dash to become payment methods, in place of cash or credit cards, in summer this year.
Salamantex reportedly also spoke highly of the nation’s recent attitude, regarding changing to cashless payment transactions “as far as possible.”
“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 reportedly has a target to facilitate the release of the crypto payment service in other nations too.
