Wow, Google Translate doesn't do a particularly great job at translating that article.

This part was clear:

Few e-merchants accept this virtual currency, but users sometimes use them to pay a restaurant, a taxi

I also was looking for a reference to "System D" as that is the country which defined the term, but it wasn't addressed.

In recent years, a free software (it does not belong to any company) alows sending Bitcoins that can be traded online with sites like Bitcoin-central.net,  at about $ 6 for one bitcoin. "Some 9 million bitcoins have already been created," notes Gonzague Grandval, from Paymium. Few e-merchants accept this virtual currency, but users sometimes use them in a peer-to-peer mode to share a restaurant or taxi..

To be honest, the article is about "mobile wallets" (whatever that means). I just thought that its probably the first time we see a link to an exchange in a mainstream newspaper (albeit only the electronic edition)
