Consumers may now buy bitcoins at all FamilyMart convenience stores in Taiwan.

“Following the existing 3000+ FamilyMart convenience stores, BitoEX has signed agreements with two other mega convenience store enterprises (OK Mart and Hi-Life), making it now a total number of more than 5,000 locations in Taiwan available for purchasing bitcoins in late 2014,” Cheng Kuang Tai, CEO of BitoEX explained. “We have chartered KBBEX as our supplier of Bitcoin to BitoEX. We are confident that in collaboration with KBBEX and the associated companies, the recognition of bitcoins will grow and general public would cast their vote of trust to bitcoins.”
KBBEX currently supports 11 kinds of the world’s major trading currencies, namely USD, CNH (Offshore RMB), EUR, HKD, GBP, AUD, CAD, CHF, JPY, SGD and NZD for bitcoin trading.

“Bitcoins global markets have entered into a brand new financial era. Bitcoin-related financial tools and its derivatives have attracted billions of investment funds from Wall Street and Silicon Valley. The existing offline transactions (OTC) markets are insufficient to cope with the demand of our worldwide customers,” stated Patrick Lam, CEO of KBBEX. “It drives us to open a bitcoin exchange platform. KBBEX plans to launch its China platform whenever users can use onshore Renminbi to perform transactions in early 2015. Beside the business in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, we also have our business partners in Switzerland and Japan. We will keep working hard for expanding our network. We strongly believe that globalization is one of the keys to enhancing the development of bitcoin industry. “
