Changing Bitcoins to Kuna? It’s Now Possible with Croatian Post

Lauren Simmonds

Remember all the bitcoin range from not so long ago? While the subject might have died down a little over the last few years, it’s still relevant to many. While Croatian Post often gets little other than rather negative press, it seems they’ve taken a rather unexpected leap into the modern world.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 25th of July, 2019, there have been an increasing number of users of bitcoin and other crypto-currencies over the last several years, and Croatian Post (Hrvatska Pošta), with its current national network of 1,016 postal offices, wants to further contribute to bitcoin’s overall popularity.

Owners of crypto-currencies who want to replace their virtual money for cold hard cash, more specifically the Croatian kuna, no longer need to seek out a crypto-currency cash machine or bank. As of July the 15th, 2019, they have been able to switch their bitcoins for kuna thanks to Croatian Post.

As they reported themselves from Croatian Post, all domestic and foreign users of crypto-currencies can change it to the Croatian kuna in Zadar post offices. You’re probably envisioning a lengthy, ridiculous process and unjustifiable waiting times, just as with almost everything else in Croatia, right? You’d be wrong, at least this time. According to Croatian Post, the process can be completed in just a few very simple steps.

After the application is filed, the QR code is scanned and in the post office can then raise the cash. It is currently possible to switch the five most commonly used crypto-currencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Stellar, Ripple and EOS), to the kuna.

This interesting and surprisingly modern pilot project, in cooperation with another Croatian company, Electrocoin, which has been running for five whole years now, has been implemented in three post offices in Zadar (Škožići Benje 1, Josip Juraj Strossmayera 8, and Maslenica Street 1), and at these locations, the level of interest for this type of service will be showcased.
