The crypto-conductive community of Costa Rica is relatively underdeveloped The government has not articulated a clear regulatory stance regarding cryptocurrency, and data pertaining to BTC/CRC localbitcoin trade is unavailable. Despite such, many online gambling companies that accept bitcoin are based in Costa Rica, owing to the nation’s attractive taxation and legislation, including Breakout Gaming Group, Bitdice, and a subsidiary of Betking.
Cryptobuyer is not the first company to claim the title of “first bitcoin cashier” in Costa Rica. In 2014, Bitcoinmagazine reported that a Costa Rican company, MBTC Corporation, had announced that it would launch the country’s first bitcoin ATM. Despite the story, there is a lack of evidence confirming the installation. The website of MBTC’s alleged parent company, Mundo Bitcoin, states that it is under construction and features 2014-2015 copyrighting – suggesting that the company was not successful in its aims.
