The Bergère pharmacy, located in the 10 th arrondissement of Paris, is causing a stir by becoming the first to allow payment for medicines in cryptocurrencies. Part of the Ipharm group, this brand is paving the way for a new trend in the medical sector.

To ensure the security of transactions, the Bergère pharmacy announced a partnership with the start-up Lyzi, which had already developed a cryptocurrency payment solution for the Beaugrenelle center.

Lizy is a mobile application that allows you to make your daily purchases in cryptocurrency without having first converted to euros. You can then pay directly in Bitcoin for your shopping for example or any other purchase as you wish.

The owner of the Parisian pharmacy said that all health products without exception will be able to be purchased in cryptocurrency.

“It’s 2023, cryptocurrencies are increasingly common on the web and it was important for me to offer this physical payment service to my customers, whether they are French or international.”
