Argentine public transport IC card SUBE card supports bit coin charging.
SUBE cards are used in buses, subways and railways in Argentina. Altoviaje, a service provider for the USBE card charging platform, has partnered with Bitex, a block-chain financial services company, to charge SUBE cards with Bitcoin via AltoVia’s Web site.
The Vitex side has more than 7 million subscribers to 37 sub-regions in Argentina, which can be used for trains, buses and subways. Alto Via has so far been affiliated with PayPal, a payment service, and Raffi Fargo, an Argentine electronic payment system.
The two sides explained that providing broad public access to innovative technologies such as bit coin is a key objective of the alliance. This project is important in delivering true value in everyday life by handing out destructive technologies such as bit coin to the public.
