An app by Eligma, a Slovenian blockchain-centric startup formed in 2017, allows more than 240 locations in Slovenia accept cryptocurrency payments.
Shoppers can use Elipay, Eligma’s mobile application, to pay with cryptocurrency at either online or brick-and-mortar stores. Locations vary from grocery stores to shopping centers, from restaurants to night clubs. Elipay payment option is available at over a dozen shopping areas of Tuš, a prominent Slovenian supermarket.
“Elipay users now have the possibility of buying daily fresh fruit and vegetables, along with 20,000 other products. Grocery shopping has just acquired a crypto dimension — with Elipay,” we read on Eligma’s blog.
The mobile wallet app features immediate payments with select cryptocurrencies, free transfers worldwide, balance and transaction history, and loyalty rewards. The recent app overhaul made the app more convenient and finding new places where shoppers can spend crypto much easier. The discovery feature lets users search for stores and service providers in their vicinity, or browse them by category. Elipay allows saving favorite locations that will be just a click away.
The cryptocurrencies accepted are Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Eligma’s very own ELI token.
Eligma’s objective is to usher crypto into the mainstream and raise awareness about blockchain among public. In time, Elipay plans to add credit and debit card integration into the app, which will enable buyers with fiat currencies to make purchases with their smartphones.
Eligma made global headlines with the launch of Bitcoin City, a joint project of Eligma and BTC d.d., a BTC City shopping and business center.
Many other blockchain and crypto projects have sprung up in the country. As a result, Slovenia boasts one of the world’s highest concentrations of crypto-friendly locations per capita.
The Elipay wallet app is available for Android and iOS devices.
