Digycode, a French start-up operating in the cryptocurrency sector, has introduced the possibility to purchase Tezos (XTZ) via prepaid cards and gift vouchers.
This integration is the result of a partnership between Digycode and Nomadic Labs, the research and development team that maintains the Tezos code.
Christopher Villegas, co-founder of Digycode, said that Tezos is „one of the most promising crypto projects“, stressing that this initiative required several months of reflection and consideration.
XTZ in 10,000 French stores
Starting this week, French citizens will be able to buy Tezos in 10,000 tobacconists, petrol stations and mini-markets across the country using prepaid cards and gift vouchers.
Digycode’s network of shops now allows you to buy six different types of cryptocurrency: not only Tezos, but also Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP) and Dash.
To purchase cryptocurrency in stores supported by Digycode, users must first complete the registration on the company’s website: a process that also requires a Know Your Customer check.
With this initiative, Digycode is aimed primarily at small investors: cryptocurrency can be purchased in denominations of €20, €50 and €200. There is also a daily purchase retail users accrue bitcoin – second quarter of 2020 – went live last week – purchase property with bitcoin – 13% rally this week – worth nearly $200 million – watch: chainlink ceo talks data oracles – an earlier post – actually launching two cryptocurrencies – announced the closure limit of €1,000 and a monthly limit of €10,000.
A French entrepreneur would like to token the Mona Lisa
Digycode was launched in August 2017, in order to make cryptocurrency more easily accessible for French investors.
The company is a subsidiary of Toulouse Digital Service, a group that also manages the Zebitex and ZeBitcoin cryptocurrency trading services. In 2018, Digycode distributed 65,000 vouchers nationwide.
Stephane Distinguin, founder and CEO of Fabernovel, recently recommended the tokenisation and sale of the Mona Lisa for €50 billion to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the economy.
