Simple and quick exchange of cryptocurrencies for HRK in 55 post offices
Zagreb, 11th of December 2019 – Following a successful implementation and positive results of the pilot project for cryptocurrency exchange in post offices in Zadar, Croatian Post is extending this service to a total of 55 post offices in all Croatian counties.
Starting December 11, all Croatian and foreign service users will be able to convert their cryptocurrencies to HRK in just a few simple steps. After you submit a request, a QR code will be scanned and you will receive cash at a post office. Exchange is available for the five most commonly used cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Stellar, Ripple and EOS. Detailed information about all services is available at crypto.posta.hr.
The pilot-project has shown that there is an interest for this type of service, which is why Croatian Post will introduce the service of cryptocurrency exchange at post offices across the country. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of cryptocurrency users, who very often plan to travel to those places where they can convert their digital money to the national currency. Due to a wide range of possibilities this service offers, the numerous guests visiting Croatia will find our cities even more interesting.
A list of all post offices providing this service can be found at the Crypto Center portal (crypto.posta.hr), which also includes a calculator. You can use the calculator to find out the amount of HRK you will receive by Croatian Post for your cryptocurrencies in a simple and quick way. Cryptocurrency exchange is carried out in cooperation with Electrocoin, a Croatian company that has been successfully running bitcoin-mjenjacnica.hr service for 5 years.
In the future, we also plan to introduce the option to buy cryptocurrencies at Croatian Post’s offices, thus making them the central points for cryptocurrency transactions across Croatia.
