Argentina’s State Public Transport Card SUBE Accepts Bitcoin
Argentinian state public transport card SUBE can now be topped up using Bitcoin, Cointelegraph in Spanish reported Friday, Feb. 8.
Alto Viaje, a platform for adding money to SUBE cards, has partnered with Bitex, which provides blockchain-driven financial services to businesses.
As a result of the partnership, the SUBE card can now be funded using BTC, via Alto Viaje’s website.
Cointelegraph spoke to Manuel Beaudroit, CMO at Bitex, who said that SUBE – that can be used to travel by train, bus and subway – is used by over seven million people in 37 locations in Argentina.
He explained that Alto Viaje has previously worked with PayPal and Rapipago, an Argentinian digital payments system.
The technology provider behind SUBE is Argentina’s Nacion Servicios S.A., a subsidiary of Banco de la Nación Argentina, the country’s national bank.
