46 Tifon gas stations across Croatia have reportedly started accepting payments in cryptocurrency. The Paycek payment processor allows customers to pay with a range of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ether.
- Tifon gas stations in Croatia started accepting payments in cryptocurrency in early February. There are currently 46 Tifon filling stations in the country.
- Paycek, a service from Croatian fintech startup Electrocoin, will process crypto payments for Tifon. According to its website, Paycek supports Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), XRP, Stern (XLM) and EOS.
- Cryptocurrency payments are converted to fiat currency at the time of purchase. For example, if a customer buys gasoline for HRK 400 (USD 64) and pays with a cryptocurrency, Paycek processes the payment and pays Tifon in Croatian kuna. Tifon says it is at no point at risk from accepting crypto payments.
- Ana Lokas, Chief Finance Officer of Tifon, commented: “Although payments in cryptocurrencies are still in their infancy in Croatia, we expect their further development and growth with the introduction of this payment option at all Tifon sales outlets, especially during the tourist season given the far It is common practice to use this type of payment by foreign customers. “
