Union Bank of the Philippines is launching the country’s first two-way virtual currency ATM that complies with rules set by central bank, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).
This is part of the Philippine government’s regulatory sandbox. “In the bank’s continued quest to cater to the evolving needs and tastes of customers, including clients who use virtual currency, the ATM will provide these clients an alternative channel to convert their pesos to virtual currency and vice versa,” Union Bank of the Philippines, one of the largest banks in the country with over 300 branches, said in a statement.
No mention of the coins involved.
