Bulgaria’s finance minister says the country is exploring crypto payment options: Report By Cointelegraph



Assen Vassilev, Bulgaria’s deputy prime minister for EU Funds and minister of Finance, said the EU member nation is exploring options for rolling out a crypto payment mechanism.

According to a Friday Bloomberg report, Vassilev said the government was in discussion with the Bulgarian National Bank as well as industry players to explore crypto payments “in the short to medium term.” However, he added that Bulgaria was unlikely to become a major hub for crypto miners — many are reportedly considering leaving Kazakhstan amid political turmoil and disruptions to the internet.
