Buy gift cards at Bitcoin.com Store with Bitcoin BCH
The Bitcoin.com Store went through a major facelift last week that saw the inclusion of additional products, such as new merchandise, art, hardware devices and paraphernalia. Since then, it has continued to add new products in an effort to expand its large line of offerings, and has now gone one step further. The store has partnered with Egifter, a gift card service, and customers can now purchase gift cards for any of more than 300 retailers.
The Egifter Marketplace has been integrated, in a way, into the Bitcoin.com Store. The store will provide an interface to the marketplace to browse and purchase any of the available cards. Among the retail options are Best Buy, AutoZone, Dunkin Donuts, Banana Republic, Applebees, the California Pizza Kitchen and many more.
After making the card selections, users proceed to the checkout page on the store’s site and can make payments with Bitcoin BCH. The store uses Bitpay to process payments and, as such, payments must be made through a crypto wallet that is compatible with the Bitpay Payment Protocol. Once the purchase is complete, the customers will receive a virtual gift card corresponding to their store, or stores, of choice.
According to Bitcoin.com’s eCommerce Manager, Blake Moore, Bitcoin BCH enthusiasts now have hundreds of more reasons to appreciate the digital currency. He said, “Well over 300 cards from the world’s top brands are now available to our valued users which adds a great deal of accessibility.”
Bitcoin.com isn’t just the name behind a store. It offers a range of products, including a mining operation, a news service and a wallet. The wallet has been downloaded more than a million times from the Google Play Store and reportedly has more than 3 million users worldwide. The company is owned by Roger Ver, who recently announced that the company could be considering the launch of a cryptocurrency exchange.
The continued dedication of Bitcoin BCH enthusiasts is showing why the cryptocurrency is the world’s number one digital currency alternative to fiat. It is the only crypto that still adheres to the original design of digital currency as set forth by Satoshi Nakamoto. It continues to receive global merchant adoption and is now used by millions of retailers around the world.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.
Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
