Bitmart Launches NZ’s First Online Digital Currency Store

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bitmart Launches New Zealand’s First Online Digital Currency Store

May 19, 2014 – Kiwi Bitcoin users are now able to enjoy the first online store in New Zealand dedicated to digital currency. The store, Bitmart.co.nz, is committed to stocking a huge variety of snacks, electronics and household consumables previously unobtainable through Bitcoin in NZ.

A highly-anticipated launch, New Zealand residents have had great things to say about Bitmart so far. One user notes, “Good to finally see somewhere to spend my BTC (bitcoins) in New Zealand.” Another says, “It is awesome to see this starting up, will definitely be buying a thing or two!”

“The sheer volume of orders and positive feedback received in the short time since launch genuinely blew away all my expectations.” Store founder Chris Dawson states, “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.”

Along with Bitcoin, Bitmart also accepts as payment the new and weirdly fascinating digital currency Dogecoin. Originally starting out as a joke Dogecoin's active user base have crowd funded a Nascar driver sponsorship, sent the Jamaican bobsled team to the Sochi Olympics, built wells for people in Kenya and raised money for countless other charities.

The store’s goal is to help build a thriving digital currency economy in New Zealand and to be everyone's first choice for all online purchases. Aside from offering treats such as gummy bears, Twinkies, jam, and pork crackle, Bitmart.co.nz is currently the only New Zealand based company to offer electronics, computer supplies, and household goods payable by digital currency.
