Croatian post offices trial crypto exchange service

posted 3 months ago
The main Croatian post office is piloting a cryptocurrency exchange service. Croatian Post (Hrvatska Pošta) is now offering crypto-to-fiat exchanges in three post offices in the coastal town of Zadar – a tourist hot spot. The trial run will allow it to gauge the market interest for such a service and, if successful, it may roll out crypto exchanges “in all major towns and tourist centers in Croatia.”

“Over the past few years, cryptocurrencies have developed more and more users, and Croatia will, with its network of 1,016 post offices, surely contribute to their popularity. Digitalization is one of the Croatian postal development strategies and a driver of numerous business projects.” The pilot – which allows users to convert cryptos into the Croatian national currency, the kuna (HRK) – comes via a collaboration with Croatian crypto brokerage and payments firm Electrocoin.
