Sapna Bookstore, a 50-year-old bookstore in Bangalore, has started accepting bitcoins for book purchases. The web store of Sapna, Sapna Online, has become the first online store in India to accept bitcoin payments.
Earlier the bookstore supported Credit Card, Debit Card, Net Banking, PayTM, PayU Money as a payments option. With bitcoins, both Indian and international buyers can make purchases, as the company provides international shipping facility as well.
Unocoin, an Indian cryptocurrency exchange, has developed the payment gateway for Sapna.
Askrypto reported earlier that the cryptocurrency ATM setup by Unocoin had been seized as the ATM violated the rules and regulations of Reserve Bank of India against the use of cryptos.
