MEXICO CITY, MEXICO, Dec. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — QPAGOS (OTCQB: QPAG), a U.S.-based provider of digital payment services in Mexico, announced it has completed development of an application to allow consumers to purchase cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, through its self-service kiosks and mobile application.Self-Service Electronic Payments Pioneer Expanding Consumer Access to Cryptocurrencies
In fact, QPAGOS completed this week an agreement with one of Mexico’s largest Bitcoin exchanges and very soon thousands of their clients will be able to deposit funds into their Bitcoin accounts through QPAGO’s growing self-service Kiosk network.
There is heightened awareness of cryptocurrencies in the Mexican market. In fact, a broadly discussed initiative proposed by the government to modernize Mexico’s fintech sector includes a section about Bitcoin. It is expected that QPAGOS kiosks could thus facilitate customers of the several local cryptocurrency exchanges to purchase these currencies through its over 700 kiosks network. In a subsequent phase QPAGOS kiosks would also be expected to accept deposits into its mobile QPAGOS wallet in Bitcoins initially, and other currencies eventually.
“We are very excited with the prospect of adding cryptocurrencies to our expanding menu of payment services. Our growing kiosk network in Mexico we believe is ideally deployed to connect customers with the leading Bitcoin Exchanges in the country,” said Gastón Pereira, CEO and President of QPAGOS.
United States based QPAGOS offers cutting edge digital payment services for consumers and service providers in Mexico where 60% of the adult population does not have a bank account and where 95% of consumer purchases are made in cash. It operates a network of self-service kiosks and applications offering alternative payment more convenient for consumers and a more efficient billing platform for service providers. (www.qpagos.com )
