Canada: Simon Fraser University Students Can Buy Books with Bitcoins as New ATMs Come to Campus Bookstores
From Business Vancouver:
Students at Simon Fraser University (SFU) looking to buy books for the summer semester have one more payment option available to them.
Students are then able to purchase products at the bookstore using their bitcoins, just as they would with a debit card or cash.
SFU Ancillary Services executive director Mark MacLachlan told Business in Vancouver he wants to take a “phased approach” to expanding Bitcoin Hoje on campus.
“Our plan at this point is to expand it to other retail locations on campus, namely dining services, the restaurants, over the course of the next year,” he said.
