IKEA Iceland has allowed a commercial transaction on Ethereum blockchain to simplify the settlement of an order from local retailer Nordic Store.

The transaction was carried out on a platform from supply chain payments firm Tradeshift. It used an Ethereum-based version of the Icelandic króna created by ConsenSys-backed startup Monerium.

“As the first company authorized to issue e-money on blockchains, we are delighted to demonstrate the benefits of blockchains for mainstream B2B transactions using a legal form of digital money,” said Monerium CEO Sveinn Valfells.

Settling invoices in digital fiat with smart contracts is something new for Europe. It’s hoped this will accelerate cross-border payments across multiple jurisdictions.
