Xiaomi smartphones in Portugal can now be officially purchased with cryptocurrency. Xiaomi’s official retailer in this country — Mi Store Portugal — has started accepting some cryptocurrencies for payment.
The list includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether and Dash. Interestingly, there is a Tether-cryptocurrency pegged to the dollar. That is, the pegging rate always corresponds to the dollar rate.
For cryptocurrency, you can buy smartphones, smart watches, electric scooters and other Xiaomi equipment. It is not reported if there are any restrictions.
To enable cryptocurrency transactions, Xiaomi has partnered with the Swiss company Utrust. Their own Utrust Token (UTK) is also accepted for payment. By the way, this token has risen by about 25% in the last hours, clearly against the backdrop of information about Xiaomi.
