In Sweden, to pay the debts of the state is possible with bitcoin

The compulsory enforcement service of Sweden has already received its first payment in bitcoin


One of the Swedish companies transferred to the account of the compulsory enforcement Service of Sweden (SEA) of 0.6 bitcoin ($3100). It is reported ЛІГА.net with reference to SvD Näringsliv.

“We are used to working with the banking system. It is an asset of a different kind, which allows us to conduct operations in new ways,” – said the representative of the SEA John Paulson.

The authorities do not plan to keep the bitcoins and immediately held an auction for the sale.

However, the SEA claimed that the sale of bitcoins on the auction house a necessary measure, as at the state level there is no Agency that would provide services for opening accounts in bitcoins.

Recall, bitcoin exchange rate regained rapid growth and for the first time exceeded $ 5,100.
