South America is going through a currency crisis. Whereas Venezuelan inflation could reach 1 million this year because of economic mismanagement and corruption, over in Argentina the currency has slid 50% versus the dollar and inflation is skyrocketing.

That leaves you with Brazil who has also seen their currency weaken against the dollar as investors worry about an insecure election result (although Mr. Jair Bolsonaro is expected to make it into the second round, it is unsure who he will face) and the economic growth grinds to a halt.

This all means that Brazilians, the largest population of any nation in South America, are worried about their savings and many youngsters are, just like Asians have done in the past year, turning to cryptocurrencies.

And now, grocery shoppers in Brazil and Colombia believing that rampant Venezuelan or Argentinean inflation is headed their way may soon be able to pay for their groceries in cryptocurrency thanks to BitCapital which revealed plans to introduce point-of-sale devices to Brazilian and Colombian grocery stores.

The announcement stated that no less than 1,000 point of sales devices would be brought to the largest South American market, even though it remains unclear which of the major Brazilian grocery chains will allow them.

Mr. Zac Cheah, CEO and Co-founder of Pundi X: “In a region fast gaining a reputation as a center for cryptocurrency to enter, the Brazilian market is an ideal point of entry and the demand from merchants has validated our expansion strategy into South America.”

“BitCapital is the ideal partner for our debut in Brazil. Not content to be an OTC leader in a market of global significance they are looking to take on banks and deliver a new payments solution.”
