posted about 1 year ago
Two Brazilian bus companies, Viação Garcia and Brasil Sul, that are part of the GSB group have just became the first passenger transport companies in Brazil to accept cryptocurrency as a payment method.

The group initially opted to only use Bitcoin, but plans to add Litecoin by July.

“Many economic and commercial operations are migrating to the digital world, and the segment of road passenger transport is no different“ says GSB Group vice president Estefano Boiko Junior.

These transportation companies offer trips among cities as well as private trips for schools, clubs, companies and excursions.

The new payment method is available through the bus companies website, via online reservation only, and the ticket will be sent to the customer’s email as payment confirmation.
