Spanish speakers are benefitting from improved cryptocurrency access as Spanish bitcoin payment platform Bitnovo launches a new service that allows customers from across the world to purchase bitcoin by making payments through debit cards. Currently bitnovo offers a selection of payment methods including card payments, Skrill, Sofort and bank transfers and now will implement the new debit card purchase option.
Bitnovo´s prepaid debit cards are already available in euro denomination; these prepaid debit cards can be instantly charged with a bitcoin transaction. The funds will be available for use as soon as the transaction is validated by the blockchain. The process allows the card owners to spend Bitcoin at any physical shop or online commerce portal in real-time. These cards work with online services like PayPal, Amazon etc. It also allows withdrawals from any MasterCard ATM across the world.
The Bitnovo team commented: “For us, as Bitcoin enthusiasts, it is still very difficult to use Bitcoin in our daily life. We cannot spend Bitcoin when we go to the supermarket, when we go to the dentist or when we go for a haircut. With our solution, you can instantly convert Bitcoin to euros and spend them anywhere, or even withdraw them for cash at any ATM. With our card you do not have to keep the Bitcoin with us, you can have them in your favourite wallet and just convert them when necessary. It’s a very quick process, with no logins or registrations, as simple as it gets.”
Bitcoin adoption is rapidly increasing in Spanish speaking countries. Many potential customers in these regions face problems while accessing customer support in languages other than their native tongue. Bitnovo uses a completely Spanish website, and provides customer support by telephone or by email in both Spanish and English.
