Cryptocurrency Adoption Soars in Slovenia

The number of locations accepting cryptocurrencies through the Gocrypto payment system has surpassed 1,000, Gocrypto announced last week.

Noting that “you can just use your crypto wallet when getting around your daily life,” Gocrypto remarked:

Slovenia [is] taking the global lead as the country with the highest number of physical locations accepting cryptocurrencies.

According to its website, Gocrypto is currently present in 15 countries and more than 150,000 products can be bought using its system. The countries are Argentina, Austria, Bulgaria, Colombia, Croatia, Czechia, Hungary, Japan, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, the U.K., and Venezuela. In some countries, the system is operated by Gocrypto’s partner Xpay.

At the time of this writing, the Gocrypto website is showing 1,416 merchants using its system, only 95 of which are online stores.

The Gocrypto system consists of one or more point-of-sale (POS) terminals connected to the Gocrypto payment network. Customers can use bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ether, the euro token, and Gocrypto’s native token GOC to pay for goods and services. Merchants receive payments in their local currency. Currently, Gocrypto is compatible with the Elly wallet app and the Bitcoin.com Wallet.

The first version of Gocrypto, Elipay, was tested at BTC City Ljubljana, one of Europe’s biggest shopping centers, which has about 21 million visitors a year.
