Liechtenstein post office now offers crypto exchange

The small European nation of Liechtenstein has made a major move towards crypto adoption. The country's national post office, Liechtenstein Post, is now offering to exchange cryptocurrencies for customers.

According to, the crypto exchange service will function the same as regular money exchange services. A post office counter in Vaduz will be the site of the introductory trial, offering exchange of Bitcoin (BTC) into fiat currency.

If this trial is successful, the service should be expanded to include more crypto tokens: Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Ripple (XRP).

This initiative is the result of a business partnership between Liechtenstein Post AG and Vardex Suisse. Vardex Suisse is the largest blockchain payments provider for large-scale businesses in Switzerland. It is also a member of the Crypto Valley Zug Community, an influential co-operative group of crypto firms in one of the main business regions in Switzerland, a country known for its low-tax, business-friendly environment.
