New Zealand Opens Online Grocery Store Accepting Bitcoin Payments

New Zealand likes cryptocurrencies and that clearly shows as the country has opened an online grocery store where Bitcoin payments are accepted, along with the New Zealand Dollar. The store was set up by Chris Dawson, a guy who believes that cryptocurrency and Bitcoin is the future of trading and can be found on Bitmart.co.nz.

“The enthusiasm of the growing Bitcoin community and their eagerness to help establish a thriving digital currency economy in New Zealand really solidifies my belief that Bitcoin is here to stay,” Dawson said to Stuff.co.nz

When you visit Bitmart’s website you will be able to see prices listed in both NZD and in Bitcoin, making it easy for you to see at all times what it will cost you in fiat money and in cryptocurrency values. The site offers all the needed groceries and things for the home that you can imagine and the selection continues to grow every week as more and more orders starts to get in.

With the community being very happy about the store opening, Bitmart has received lots of support right from the start and has already had some large orders coming in. For now the store is only for citizens of New Zealand, but it wouldn’t surprise us to see other online grocery stores opening up locally around the world and accepting Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies in the near future.
