Keplerk launched its service first in January and suspended the service in less than two months of starting with operations with about 6 vendors. This expansion drive to 5200 though welcomed by many crypto enthusiasts is not endorsed by The Central Bank, one major factor in the business’ slow progress.


According to the report, Keplerk's customers will be able to purchase tobacco in coupons of 50, 100 and 250 Euros.


This payment system is made available through Keplerk's partner Bimedia that will be responsible for providing the payment channel.
