Elipay partners with Bitcoin Cash, raising BCH adoption

The official maker of Elipay, Eligma, has said in a blog post that grocery purchases are now entering a ‘crypto dimension’ as Bitcoin Cash has come to Slovenia via Elipay.

The economy of Slovenia, as well as that of Croatia, which is located nearby, lives off tourists to an extensive degree, and this is one of the reasons why crypto adoption in these countries has been proceeding at a higher pace than in others.

Numerous bars, brick-and-mortar stores, event venues, etc, collaborate with Elipay, including the top food store chain Tuš, allowing customers to pay with BCH now.

The Bitcoin Cash community took this news eagerly, believing that this move may spur faster adoption for daily use of crypto in other regions on the globe.

Elipay works via the Point-of-Sale system and can be used at over 100 locations in Slovenia. Apart from Bitcoin Cash, the app uses BTC, ETH and its own ELI token.
