Purchasing Bitcoin in six tobacco shops in Paris

January 11, 2019 15:49:28 - Digital currencies are gradually spreading among the general population. With each day it is becoming easier to purchase coins even for the people with superficial knowledge on this topic. Fresh news from France are a sound example of it. Keplerk, a crypto-processing service started selling Bitcoins for real money in six stores in Paris that sell tobacco products. At the moment, it can be considered pretty much as an experiment. If it ends up as a success, an increase in the number of places for buying bitcoins in this way is expected.

A person only needs to carry cash on him (50, 100 or 250 euros). For his cash payment the client will receive a piece of paper with a special code (it will contain letters and numbers) and a QR code. Then this information he will be entering on the Keplerk website. By performing simple actions, the client will be able immediately transfer Bitcoins to his cryptocurrency wallet. But there is one small nuance that makes this method of purchasing Bitcoins imperfect: high fee rates (7%).

If the service turns out to be in demand for people, then already in next month it will be possible to buy “digital gold” in more than 6 thousand tobacco shops located throughout the country.

It is worth mentioning that Keplerk does not have a license from local authorities for selling digital assets. However, at the moment the regulatory authorities have pretty lenient attitude towards this kind of activity not issuing any comply notices.
