Liechtensteinische Post offers cryptocurrencies
Liechtensteinische Post, the government-owned post office in Liechtenstein, announced on Friday that it would offer cryptocurrencies through its post offices. The Post will provide such services in a partnership with Värdex Suisse which is the largest cryptocurrency ATMs provider in Switzerland. Initially, crypto services will include only Bitcoin, but the Post plans to expand its cryptocurrency offer in the future, as the Post’s release reports. Let us recall that Liechtenstein is one of the most crypto-friendly countries in the world.
Over the weekend Ethereum (ETHEREUM on xStation5) bulls stole the show as the cryptocurrency rose to nearly the $133 mark. Let us remind that the last time Ethereum was hovering around this level was the first half of January. Source: xStation5
13% of surveyed online customers have used virtual currencies
According to Kaspersky Lab’s study, 13% of surveyed online customers have used cryptocurrencies. More precisely, the cybersecurity company Kaspersky Lab surveyed nearly 12.5 thousand customers from over 20 countries. Kaspersky Lab asked surveyees about payments methods used by them. No one should be surprised the most popular answers concerned mainstream payments methods (eg. pay with a credit or debit card), but popularity of crypto payments seems to be interesting as digital currencies have significantly fallen in recent months.
Ripple (RIPPLE on xStation5), like its bigger peers, ended the weekend in green. Moreover, the bullish moods seem to be extended for Monday trading. The cryptocurrency is situated a notch below $0.31 at press time. Source: xStation5
