ARGENTINA AND PARAGUAY HAD THEIR FIRST TRANSACTION WITH THE PAYMENT IN BITCOINS
Argentina announced the completion of the first transaction to export products to Paraguay using Bitcoin as a means of payment.
The load of pesticides and fumigation of products has become the first batch of orders paid with Bitcoin. The deal shows that cryptocurrency can act as a trustworthy form of a payment at the level of international trade as well as a payment between individuals. Note that, despite the small amount of the party paid by Bitcoin, the very fact of such a transaction is remarkable.
Argentina used the services of Bitex to carry out the transaction. Payment was made under the terms of the program Esporta Simple, which allows you to make small payments not exceeding $15 thousands.
Earlier this month, it became known that the Argentine smart card Cube (Sistema Único de Boleto Electrónico), which is used to pay for public transport, can now be replenished with Bitcoins. These maps are used for bus, train, metro and motor boat trips in 37 cities, including the capital, Buenos Aires.
