Can you believe it?
We, the Croatian Bitcoin community, are really shocked with this information and we did not expect this.
It seems that right now Croatian post office will offer this service as pilot project only in one city in Croatia- Zadar, but hopefullythis service will be extended soon to all post offices in the Republic of Croatia!
It's great step for bitcoin acceptance in Croatia.
So, what are you waiting for, come in Croatia and spend your bitcoin and other crypto here  Grin Grin Grin



Original info about it came from user Branko in this topic :
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5167858.0
 and also from FB page "Bitcoin mjenjacnica " and Croatian magazine Bug. I also contacted directly Croatian postal service and will post here their official answer about future plans with this crypto exchange.

So, you could now send a letter with some satoshis? Or do you mean a full exchange like the online exchanges? Its good to see adoption. I'd like clarification, Is this (postal) service private or state owned?

No, we can't send a letter and pay with bitcoin but we can exchange bitcoin to local currency.
This is state owned postal service.

Nice,
but why in earth are they using XRP ?  Roll Eyes

Could be in partnership because you know, RippleLabs is a company so..

Anyway, this is good, though with that kind of premium I don't think a lot of people would be willing to use the service. This is a one step closer towards the big boom in crypto but I think it's best if exchanges are held by private entities and not government entities. I might just be paranoid but seriously, it's a nice strategy to get/snoop into people's crypto profiles/spendings and keep tabs on them and make sure that they are still spied on.

This is good but I'd like my DEX/private exchanges more.

That's a good move for a state owned postal office accepting the use of Bitcoin for payment. Even though its not a full complete exchange, its still make more publication to the global community. We are going towards the global adoption and when it happen, things will change around us ppssitivel.

That's cool. Good for you. It's good that they in addition to bitcoin accept as many as 4 other crypto. I think it's a really big achievement. In this way, other States will follow suit.

This is a great news to everyone in the crypto world. Governments are starting to see the good in crypto and all indications favor btc adoption soon. Indeed, great times are ahead

Right now I could just find out that they offering this exchange service in partnership with "Bitcoin mjenjacnica " first officially registered btc exchange in Croatia.
It seems they created special application for the postal service.
I contacted Croatian postal service and asked more info.
When they answer I will post it here.
Don't forget that this is pilot project and available only in one city in Croatia.  I believe that soon this service will be available in whole Croatia.
I think they chose Zadar as first city to accept crypto because it's tourist city with a lot tourists from all the world.

Really a good news for the cryptocurrency users of Croatia. Following the same maybe more countries will analyze the need for such services. At the initial stage making it reach the common people partnering with the leading cryptocurrency exchange of Croatia is the right way of service implementation. I would like to know about the stand of Croatian Government on bitcoin usage,from the service provided through post office it seems Croatian government is crypto friendly. Is there legal support from government for Cryptocurrency usage.

I don't know about Croatian government but Croatian tax office recently shared their official opinion how to report and pay taxes on crypto earnings.
Also,  we already have legally registered company for crypto exchange, a few Bitcoin ATM etc.
So,  yes,  it seems that Croatian government is crypto friendly. 😀

This seems very cool. I wanted to ask a few things, though. Like, what are the fees for this exchange? Are they typical, like in any other place in general? And if not the fees, the rate (price) at which they exchange Bitcoin. If it were in my country, I would choose the post office over another place if the fees in total did not exceed, say, 7%. Another question, which is not a big matter for me but is for some other people, is KYC. You're probably required to give your passport to people in the post office, right?
Oh, and my final question, which is of interest specifically to me about this whole thing. In my country, we have both public (governmental) and private post office. Is this on the main official post office of the country, or a private one?

Wow guys, that's actually really quite cool. And in English too, is that because all the tourists are coming to see Game of Thrones locations maybe?Wink I personally know 2 people booking holidays there JUST for that!

Anyone tried it out yet? Curious to know what the rates will be, or if KYC is asked for, and if so what the limits are for that;) @kryptnick, they shouldn't ask for passport if it's below a certain threshold, I guess. I'm not sure now the post office will be using its remittance licence or money transfer licence?

They should do a crypto stamp like Austrian Post recently did!

Here https://bitcoin-mjenjacnica.hr/?fbclid=IwAR1n4ws9iZAtexYKDXpF8s9U-rVPI3EOwdnEJOXuRxs2hbANrtSygag1IZw#exchange
you can see fees from their partner in this project, ''Bitcoin mjenjacnica'' but maybe they have some special deal with post office.
On the FB page of the company is explained that for crypto exchange users will need only wallet and ID.
We are talking here about 3 post offices in Zadar, which participated in pilot project and in future they have plan to include post offices in whole country.
There is no private post offices in Croatia.

buwaytress, all the tourists are coming to see Game of Thrones locations in Dubrovnik, not Zadar but any way Zadar is also very famous tourist city and on the way to Dubrovnik.
I don't live in Zadar so I didn't try this crypto exchange and don't know about others because this service just started, a few days ago.
OK, I just find out answer about fees on the FB page from ''Bitcoin mjenjacnica'', it's only 4 % but ID is required.
Nolimitz84 , ''bitcoin mjenjacnica'' also have crypto exchange office in Zagreb but, as you can imagine, it's expensive to open directly such offices so such deal with big state company, which have many offices around Croatia, is great deal for them but also for postal service as well because they will get more customers and increase profit eventually.
It's win- win I guess.
Yes, Croatian post offices are multi functional, and you can buy there baby toys, watches, books, send money with Western Union, open a life or health insurance, open a TV subscription and many other things.

This is good news for crypto enthusiast especially for european area. They can spend crypto to get service. But i would like to know how much spread for the exchange, and how about croatian's goverment statement regarding this offering.

One correction, ''Bitcoin mjenjacnica'' don't have crypto exchange office in Zagreb, it's from another company, my mistake, sorry.
I don't know yet about spread for the exchange.
I didn't see any statement from Croatian government about this project but the state owns the Croatian Post, so if they allowed this deal, it means they accept crypto.
