Australia Post teams up with Bitcoin

Australians can now pay for bitcoin at more than 3,500 national post offices. The new service launched by Bitcoin.com.au is aimed at promoting cryptocurrencies to mainstream audiences, alongside established businesses and organisations.

On June 24, 2020, the firm Bitcoin.com.au announced a partnership with the local Australia Post.

Essentially, each branch member will accept EFTPOS payments and Australian dollars for crypto-asset purchases stemming from Bitcoin.com.au and the Post Billpay service.

Purchases will be facilitated by Bitcoin.com.au, a firm that is already working with 1,500 retail stores in the country. This collaboration is due to a partnership with Blueshyft and it also gives Australians the ability to acquire BTC.

“This is a major milestone for digital currency in Australia and around the world. It proves that there are established businesses and organisations that want to learn about new technologies by doing, and not by blocking,” Holger Arians, CEO of Bitcoin.com.au said during the announcement.

Adding BTC support to over 3,500 Australia Post stores across the country will add more accessibility to those living in the country.

“Australia Post has for a long time played an important role in the community to make services accessible to all,” Susan Nicholson, Australia Post’s Head of Business & Government Financial Services stressed. Nicholson further said:

Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have been becoming quite popular in Australia, as the Australia Post stores’ latest service follows the recent partnership between Coca-Cola Amatil and Centrapay. Thanks to this collaboration over 2,000 Coca-Cola brand vending machines in Australia and New Zealand accept bitcoin (BTC) for purchases.
