The US Postal Service has said it is working to upgrade its system for handling foreign exchange and that it will begin selling the coins as soon as possible.
The service said in a statement on Thursday that it is using the US Postal Money Service to manage the foreign exchange market and would soon begin to sell crypto currencies.
The USPS has also begun to offer a bitcoin-based bitcoin wallet service to its customers.
The Postal Service did not provide any further details on how the change would work.
The change could further drive up the value of the crypto currency, according to CoinDesk.
A bitcoin exchange is not the only cryptocurrency that has emerged as a potential source of demand for US post offices.
A bitcoin-traded fund, which tracks the price of a virtual currency, has also been gaining traction.
The fund has increased in value by around 300% in the last month.
The US Postal System said it was not aware of any new bitcoin purchases by customers.
The Postal Service said it had no reason to believe that its services would be impacted by any change in the value or demand for the currency.
The postal service has been struggling with increasing inflation as the number of postal workers has dwindled to about 20,000.
The US Post Office said on Thursday it would be looking for ways to boost revenue in the coming years.
The new service is the latest effort by the USPS to become more profitable in a market where the Postal Service’s revenues are down by a third over the last year.
The USPS has been trying to attract more customers by offering cheaper prices on the USPS’s products and services.
