Mexican University coffee shop to accept bitcoin payments

Now Accepting | August 31, 2015 By:

Mexico’s Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLAP) announced it is now accepting bitcoin for purchases in the university’s coffee shop.

With the announcement, the 8,000-student university becomes the latest to host opportunities for young people to use and learn about the emerging technology.

The bitcoin processing integration was provided Bitso. The company expressed its belief that by accepting bitcoin payments, the Café Punta del Cielo location will expose more students to the technology while potentially encouraging other local franchises to accept the payment option.

Universidad de las Américas Puebla is a Mexican private university located in San Andrés Cholula, Puebla, a suburb of Puebla.
