In an effort to gain adoption, Tron cryptocurrency vouchers can now be purchased in more than 20,000 stores across Spain and Italy.
Some of the largest retailers in Spain and Italy are now selling TRX vouchers, including FNAC, Carrefour, and Game.
The Tron (TRX) facility is being provided by the Spanish cryptocurrency platform, Bitnova. In 2016, Bitnovo launched new payment options, one of which was a ‘Bitcoin charged’ debit card, which is available to use at all retailers and ATMs that accept MasterCard.
Asides bitcoin, Bitnovo facilitates a range of cryptocurrencies, including Dash, Cardano, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin.
The Tron Foundation’s founder and CEO announced the news that Tron cryptocurrency vouchers are available at thousands of retail stores in the two European countries on Twitter, tweeting:
“Thanks for the support to #TRON. Now you can buy $TRX at over 20000 stores in Spain and Italy or at bitnovo.com.”
This is not the first time Tron has forged alliances with other big firms. Last month, the France-based hardware wallet and custody startup Ledger announced that its hardware wallet Ledger Nano S will sport the Tron cryptocurrency.
TRX listed on Atomic Wallet
More recently still, Justin Sun took to Twitter to announce the TRX currency will be listed on Atomic Wallet, the multi-OS, decentralized wallet and exchange service. By featuring more than 300 cryptocurrencies and altcoins, Atomic Wallet is one of the most varied crypto exchanges available today.
The Tron Foundation also launched Tron Wallet, which was developed in partnership with the software firm Getty/IO, on the Google Play Store. It is expected an iOS version will be released shortly.
The world’s largest decentralized internet ecosystem
Tron’s acquisition of the cryptocurrency ecosystem doesn’t stop there, as the platform also recently purchased BitTorrent, an attainment that Sun was quick to deem as meaning Tron has become “the largest decentralized internet ecosystem in the world.”
By making Tron cryptocurrency vouchers available in more than 20,000 stores across Spain and Italy, Tron is taking significant steps in making crypto more mainstream and helping it achieve mass adaptation.
