A V.I.P. food market in the central area of Kiev now offers its customers to pay for products in virtual currencies. This place is especially popular with local rich people and foreign tourists since the prices there are higher than on other food markets.

Sellers there use the Estonian Paytomat payment processor. They let a customer scan a QR-code with the crypto of his/her choice and then the payment from the wallet is converted into the local fiat currency– hryvnia.

Paytomat works with almost 15 coins, including Bitcoin, EOS, Dash and ZenCash. It operates in several countries across Europe, including several former CIS republics.
