Tezos (XTZ) supporters from France will likely appreciate hearing that they can now buy this coin from 10,000 different mini-marts, gas stations, tobacco stores, and alike.

Crypto now available for purchase in French stores

This is a huge step for the crypto adoption in France, and it comes as a result of Digycode’s recent partnership. The firm partnered up with a Nomadic Labs’ research and development team, which also helps maintain Tezos’ core code.

Meanwhile, Digycode’s co-founder, Christopher Villegas, revealed his thoughts on XTZ. He said that this is one of the most promising crypto projects around. He also stressed that the listing did not come out of the blue — it is a result of many months of consideration, where the firm finally decided to go for Tezos.

Starting yesterday, May 19th, citizens of France gained the ability to buy XTZ from 10,000 different locations. As mentioned, this includes mini-markets, tobacco shops, gas stations, and alike. The funds can be bought in the form of coupons and various prepaid cards.

Technically, they are not limited to XTZ alone — Digycode’s network of stores includes five other coins too. Those are Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum(ETH), Litecoin (LTC), XRP; and Dash.

Users must create an account to buy crypto

Of course, in order to purchase crypto, users will first have to create a unique account on the company’s website and go through KYC verification.

The daily limit on crypto purchases will be €,1000, while the monthly cap sits at €10,000. And, of course, any user whose behaviour hints at illegal activities can have their account closed or limited.
