Bitcoin gift card apps let you pay with Bitcoin at places which otherwise wouldn’t accept cryptocurrency. CoinTelegraph compares the top three.
While Bitcoin is growing everyday and is accepted in thousands of businesses worldwide, the vast majority of retailers around the world still only accept payment through cash or card.
However, luckily for Bitcoin users, several apps allow gift cards to be purchased with cryptocurrency, acting as a proxy between the customer and the business. This allows the privacy-conscious and cryptocurrency diehards to use Bitcoin wherever they go. Several gift card apps make purchasing gift cards with Bitcoin on the go very simple and convenient. CoinTelegraph compares three major Bitcoin gift card apps: Gyft, eGifter, and Fold.
Unless you’re never going back to a Starbucks or Target ever again, or are really short on Bitcoin, Fold is the best option for the two stores available.
For everything else possible, use eGifter because of its zero-confirmation transactions and reward points while using Gyft for all cards available only through that platform.
Bonus: Buy with eGifter and load into Gyft. If you know what you're getting and how much it is before ordering, you can get it all set up and have Gyft's streamlined checkout experience and offline capabilities, while still profiting from eGifter's precise amounts and reward points.
