KUALA LUMPUR: Singapore-based payment transaction provider, Numoni Pte Ltd, today launched the bitcoin auto vending machines (AVMs) in Malaysia, catering to the fast-growing demand for the crypto-currency.
Numoni has installed its bitcoin AVMs in Bangsar Shopping Centre here and Gurney Plaza in Penang after launching it at the 2014 Mobile World Congress held in Spain last month.
Numoni chief executive officer, Norma Sit, said while different countries were deliberating over the acceptance of bitcoin, it remained in demand.
"The Numoni bitcoin AVMs enable the public to participate in buying small amounts of crypto-currency that is seen in many countries as an international voucher that can be used to barter for goods online," she said at a press conference on Friday. - Bernama
