The choice of the country seemed quite logical given theloyalty of the Portuguese government to digital currencies. However, the news reached the head office of Xiaomi, and a company spokesman from Beijing promptly denied it. He stated that Mi Store Portugal is only an authorized partner of Xiaomi and sells equipment in Portugal.

After that, Mi Store Portugal deleted the message inFacebook and all mentions of accepting cryptocurrencies. At the same time, Utrust is still listed as a partner on the site, although the Swiss company removed all references to the Portuguese store on Twitter.
