Česká spořitelna (ČS) is testing the option of buying the Bitcoin cryptocurrency in the Poketka mobile app.

The spokesperson for ČS, Filip Hrubý, has confirmed to ČIANEWS that the bank is testing the purchases as one of potential uses of the blockchain technology.

He has added that it is too early to predict whether the bank will begin testing Bitcoin purchases in Poketka with clients. According to him, the system is technically ready for cryptocurrency payments, but ČS perceives virtual currencies as risk assets.
