Digitec Galaxus has a billion-franc turnover and will accept crypto currencies for any purchase worth over CHF 200.

Some have already taken advantage of the offer, but the company says its too early to judge how popular it will be.

There are already around 100 businesses in the country that accept bitcoin – but Digitec Galaxus is by far the biggest.

The online company’s largest shareholder is Migros.
