В тысячах магазинах, продающих табачные изделия по всей Франции, с Нового года может появиться возможность приобрести биткоины, сообщает Europe 1.

Первоначально необходимым программным обеспечением будет оснащено от 3 до 4 тысяч магазинов. Это позволит с 1 января 2019 года покупать в них биткоин-ваучеры номиналом €50, €100 и €250. Поставщиком ПО стала компания Bimedia, преобразовать купоны на BTC в реальную криптовалюту можно будет на платформе KeplerK.

Официальное одобрение Федерация табачных магазинов получила у регулятора — Управления пруденциального надзора и разрешения прав (ACPR). Это независимый административный орган, который контролирует деятельность банков и страховых компаний.

Как заявили в ACPR, торговля биткоинами была одобрена, поскольку “криптовалюта становится глобальной валютой, и лучше сопровождать это неизбежное движение и рыночный спрос”.

Банк Франции дистанцировался от продажи BTC через участников Федерации табачных магазинов, заявив, что он никаких соглашений не подписывал.

Напомним, что Banque de France настороженно относится к криптовалютам, ранее глава Центробанка Франсуа Виллеруа де Гало (Francois Villeroy de Galhau) говорил, что биткоин — это не валюта и даже не криптовалюта, а спекулятивный актив. Он также является сторонником международного регулирования криптоактивов.

В свою очередь “полную и решительную поддержку” криптовалютной отрасли ранее высказывал Министр экономики и финансов Франции Бруно Ле Мер (Bruno LeMaire). Он также намеревался превратить страну в ICO-хаб, и в сентябре во Франции приняли собственные правила проведения токенсейлов.

French central bank states that any intermediary in a Bitcoin sale must be licensed

It means that if you plan to operate an exchange service in France, you must have an agreement from the central bank, or work with a registered company for holding funds.
Original communiqué Currently licensed
edit : Nothing really new here... The law already states that for any state-issued currency, so unless you planned on operating an exchange yourself, it does not change a thing.
Something useful that can be done here is guessing the direction they are taking: * Bitcoin is explicitely targeted here, nothing about the other 350+ altcoins * total lack of acceptance that it is easier to track bitcoins than cash * they obviously need education * is it the first step towards declaring Bitcoin as a form of money ?

TOBACCO SHOPS WILL SOON SELL CRYPTOCURRENCIES THROUGHOUT FRANCE 2018 will remain in the history books as the Annus Horribilis for Bitcoin (#BTC) $4564.38 -0.19%enthusiasts and investors. It is the year when the cryptocurrency plummeted from almost USD $20,000 to USD $4,060.
The good #news is that 2019 is quickly approaching and bringing good news for the #crypto #market. In effect, starting in 2019, thousands of points of sales will be selling Bitcoin throughout France.
Under the auspices of the Central Bank, the French Prudential Supervision and Resolution Authority (Autorité de contrôle prudentiel et de résolution – ACPR), is the institution charged with monitoring the transactions performed by banks and insurance companies in France.
ACPR has officially authorized the Federation of tobacco shops to begin selling bitcoin at the start of 2019.
At first, between 3,000 and 4,000 shops will be equipped with software to process direct purchases of “coupons” of bitcoins.
The amounts of Bitcoin that can be bought will be of the following values: 50, 100, or 250 euros. Subsequently, the other tobacconists will also be equipped to exchange the #cryptocurrency.
Antenna 1 reports that an agreement was signed recently by the company Bimedia, which provides terminals for collection at tobacco shops, allowing the sale of ‘dematerialized’ products, and KeplerK platform which offers cryptocurrencies.
Thanks to this agreement, tobacconists will be able next year to market coupons of 50, 100 or 250 euros convertible on the KeplerK website, bitcoins, ethereum, or another encrypted currency.
The Federation tobacconists explained to Europe 1:
Specifically, #people wanting to acquire bitcoins can do it in these tobacco shops. Buyers will receive a ticket that they can turn into bitcoins on the website KeplerK. KeplerK’s website boasts having over 27,000 operators and the highest numbers of point of sales in the world.
TOBACCONISTS WILL BE THE FIRST LINE OF BITCOIN #TRADE Phillipe Coy, President of the Confederation of Tobacco shops, told Europe 1 that authorizing tobacco shop owners is a way of modernizing their profession. He also added, “It brings us closer to modern times of consumption, and use.”
The Confederation of Tobacco shops (or, Fédération des Buralistes), comprises more than 25,000 points of sales in the French territory. These shops are open 13 hours a day, seven days a week. According to the Federation’s website,
This unparalleled network and this high availability make tobacconists the first network of local shops in France.
