Cielo, the largest payment processing provider in Brazil, has unveiled support for Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrency purchases on its point-of-sale (PoS) devices.

Crypto payments via QR codes

 According to the report, users can make crypto payments through Cielo PoS devices via QR codes. The PoS machines generate QR codes for payment, and the customer can then use a smartphone in order to scan a code and make a payment. The customer also reportedly needs to hold either an account with Uzzo or Criptohub — Cielo’s network partners — in order to complete payment. 

Cielo president Paulo Caffarelli remarked that its partner banks, including Bradesco, are backing the new crypto payments offering. Additionally, Cielo may begin supporting crypto payments that don’t require a PoS machine in October, per the report. Instead of a PoS device, this mode of payment would use a Cielo mobile app to generate the QR code instead.

According to company data, Cielo operates 1.4 million PoS devices, distributed across 5,500 municipalities in the country.
