As announced in a recent tweet published by Digycode, a company that has been working in the crypto sector since 2017, it will now be possible to buy the Tezos (XTZ) crypto in over 10 thousand tobacco shops in France.
Through the coupon and gift card service offered by Digycode, the company has made it possible to propagate the crypto throughout the country. Moreover, it is already possible to buy Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP) and Dash.
Tezos in tobacco shops but with KYC
Unfortunately, the Digycode system is not flawless since in order to be able to buy these cryptocurrencies in the various tobacconists in France it is necessary to go through a KYC (Know Your Customer) verification and so there is this kind of limitation, which could affect the diffusion of digital currencies.
Nevertheless, Tezos has been added today among the already available assets and has been praised by Christopher Villegas, co-founder of Digital Broker:
“The Tezos project is one of the most promising currently, it is one of those we have been monitoring for many months. Integrating Tezos (XTZ) into our services is part of a broader strategy dedicated to this protocol, with such a French accent. I would also like to thank Nomadic Labs, the research and development laboratory dedicated to the Tezos protocol. Our collaborative work with their technical support has enabled rapid integration into our services”.
Latest news at Tezos
Certainly great news for Tezos after the update to the Carthage protocol and the close partnership with Chainlink in order to implement its oracle service.
This blockchain also makes it possible to do staking and passively earn money by putting XTZ holdings to good use.
