Over the course of two years, SBB has been testing whether there is a market in Switzerland for selling the digital currency Bitcoin. From 11 November 2016, custom-ers will be able to obtain Bitcoin at all SBB ticket machines. Until now, there have only been limited opportunities to purchase Bitcoin in Switzerland. With over 1,000 ticket machines, SBB has a dense distribution network that is available round the clock and is not only suitable for purchasing tickets, but also allows additional ser-vices to be obtained.
