SAMSUNG accepts now S T E E M

in steem •  2 months ago

Seven cryptos been honored

Today I came across an interesting message in several crypto-news portals, that SAMSUNG is starting to accept Bitcoin (and other cryptos) in three Baltic Republic markets, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. I found it very interesting, and start looking into our local media channels, first of all - on Internet. However not even one word on this could be found anywhere.
I checked local payment processor COPPAY, and indeed 3 Samsung stores in Vilnius are already listed as their clients
https://coppay.io/merchants_map

Then I went to samsung.lt, their Lithuanian site, and again - not even one word. This made the intrique even higher. False rumor, or true?
Several international portals however were quite certain on this:
trustnodes.com
coinspeaker.com
bitcoin.com

Next (even today is Sunday), I have made personally a phone calls to local Samsung shops in Vilnius, and was able to get a verbal confirmation, that all is true, I can come any moment, and they will accept my payment for any possible product in Bitcoin. Woo-hoooo!
Not only Bitcoin core (BTC) is honored, but also Dash (DASH), NEM (XEM), Steem (STEEM) ( !!!), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum (ETH).

Did you hear it? Even STEEM !

In Vilnius Samsung stores are located in major shopping malls:

  • Prekybos centras "Akropolis", Ozo g. 25/I aukštas,LT-08217 Vilnius

  • Prekybos centras "Ozas", Ozo g. 18/II aukštas, LT-08243 Vilnius

  • Prekybos centras "Panorama", Saltoniškių g. 9/II aukštas, LT-08105 Vilnius

    Probably a bit more wait is needed for those living in Kaunas, but most likelly they will accept cryptos there too
  • Prekybos centras "Akropolis", Karaliaus Mindaugo pr. 49/I aukštas, LT-44333 Kaunas
  • Prekybos centras "Mega", Islandijos pl. 32/I aukštas, LV-44001 Kaunas

So as final line, I thing this is quite a good sign to see a global giant like Samsung stepping into crypto markets.

Finally, with help of bitcointalk.org, I have found that Samsung has a message out as well , but obviously not yet in localized interned sites.
bitcointalk.org
I cant wait to see them extending this initiative to their online-shops and to other, much bigger markets.

Well, looks like you are right. This is what I got in the mail this morning:

Dear Viktoras,
Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, today in media published articles wasn’t official Samsung announcement and the rumor is not true as we currently do not have any crypto and blockchain payments methods in our stores. As soon as it will be possible, we definitely will inform our clients.
If you have more questions, feel free to call or write us an email.
Have a nice day!
