Since the launch, Bitmart has seen ample amount of activity. Chris Dawson, Bitmart’s founder commented,
“The sheer volume of orders and positive feedback received in the short time since launch genuinely blew away all my expectations.”
Dawson believes in Bitcoin’s staying power, he continued,
“The enthusiasm of the growing Bitcoin community and their eagerness to help establish a thriving digital currency economy in New Zealand really solidifies my belief that Bitcoin is here to stay.”
Bitmart also accepts Dogecoin, a digital currency that began as a joke, as payment for its goods. Dogecoin has an enthusiastic and strong community that is both laid back and striving for the betterment of the digital currency.
By becoming New Zealand’s first online digital currency store, Bitmart aims to build the country’s digital currency economy. The store also hopes to become the first choice when shopping online.
According to a press release, Bitmart is based in Christchurch, New Zealand, and has become the first online store to accept digital currency in the country. It mentions that,
“Stocking a wide inventory of household consumables, snacks, tools and electronics, Bitmart is proud to serve customers with the highest customer service and great prices.”
