Australian cryptocurrency exchange Bitcoin.com.au launched a new service through which residents can purchase bitcoins and Ether in Fiat. From 1 March, this service became available at over 1200 newsstands, according to 9Finance.

“The fact that you can now purchase bitcoin and Ether there, where do you usually buy Newspapers, drinks and stationery speaks volumes about how legitimate was the cryptocurrency industry. For anyone who procrastinated with buying bitcoins, because the process seemed too complicated, this is the perfect offer that allows you to invest in a cryptocurrency without fear”, — said the Executive Director of the Bitcoin.com.au Rupert Hackett.

Note, Bitcoin.com.au that has been running for a year and a half, describes the site as “one of the first independent bitcoin exchanges in Australia”. On March 1, the site also began to support operations with Ethereum.

To purchase cryptocurrency in the booths participating in the program, users only need to self-register a personal e-wallet. At the time of purchase, the seller scans the QR code, after which appropriate amount of coins will be transferred within 20 minutes, added Hackett. The minimum purchase amount is 50 Australian dollars (about $39). The Commission Bitcoin.com.au is 5%.

We will remind, earlier cryptocurrency processing LitePal received a green light from Australian regulators.
