Moreover, to exchange vouchers to bitcoins, customers do not need to verify their identity. It is enough to enter the email address and address of cryptocurrency wallet.
Vigantas Bartasiavičius, CEO of the company that manages Narvesen, Lietuvos spauda and Caffeine, commented:
“We have a network of 60 Narvesen stores in which we are constantly expanding the range of goods and services. We recently offered citizens a cash withdrawal service, and now we are launching the sale of Bitcoin vouchers for which you can pay in cash or by credit card. This service is aimed at young customers.”
Narvesen stores and Lietuvos spauda kiosks were chosen as distributors, because of its huge and well developed network while their customers meet the requirements of the cryptocurrency target audience.
