AirBnB, Netflix can be purchased with crypto
Bitrefill now offers gift cards for AirBnB and Netflix
Cryptocurrency enthusiasts now have more flexibility if they want to spend their crypto holdings. After all, that was what digital currency was designed for – to be used as a currency. Bitrefill, a company that offers gift card purchases to a large number of retailers across the world, has now added AirBnB and Netflix to its growing list.
Bitrefill is available in 170 countries and offers gift cards for more than 1,800 companies. Among some of its offerings are Amazon, BestBuy, WalMart, Target, Chili’s, Chipotle and too many others to list here. Adding AirBnB now gives crypto fans the possibility to take a little getaway thanks to their holdings.
The AirBnB gift cards can be purchased in denominations of $25, $50 and $100 and are only valid in the U.S. They also cannot be used to cover the entirety of a 28-night or more stay.
Netflix gift cards are available for purchase in both the U.S. and Europe. Denominations for U.S. subscriptions are $25, $30 and $50, and for European customers, €15, €25, and €50.
According to a company blog post about the Netflix inclusion, Bitrefill stated, “Great news — We’re excited to roll out support for a highly requested service: Netflix! Subscriptions with the world’s largest streaming service can now be purchased and renewed with Bitcoin, Lightning, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, and Dogecoin.”
It may not seem like the ideal solution to use crypto assets – sell holdings to purchase a gift card and then use that gift card to go shopping. However, it is still a step in the right direction for crypto adoption and shows how easy it is to conduct transactions. It took over 100 years for the U.S. to decide on its currency, yet crypto has only been around for a couple of years. Despite its new-ish status, it is already garnering a significant amount of global support.
