According to a series of announcements made by Bitrefill, people can now use cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Lightning Network, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, and Dogecoin to buy the products of Netflix, Airbnb and Fortnite.
More specifically, cryptocurrency users can now purchase subscriptions for Netflix (USA & EU). Netflix is a VOD (Video-on-Demand) service that allows people to watch a wide variety of award-winning TV shows, movies, documentaries, and more on their streaming network. Their library is comprised of thousands of selections, and has easily turned into one of the most necessary and welcome additions to households around the globe.
Airbnb is an online marketplace which lets people rent out their properties or spare rooms to guests. Its members can use the service to arrange or offer lodging, primarily homestays, or tourism experiences. Airbnb’s customers can now use Bitrefill to purchase Airbnb giftcards, but this service is available only for U.S citizens for the moment.
Gamers can now purchase Fortnite V-Bucks by using cryptocurrencies as a payment method. Fortnite is one of the most popular titles in the history of video games, with its users exceeding 250 million in the first quarter of 2019. Users can buy Fortnite skins, Battle Passes, weapons, tools, or other cosmetics, as Bitrefill allows them to unlock in-game purchases with crypto. They can buy a prepaid Mastercard or an iTunes gift card directly from the website.
With these additions, Bitrefill pushes for the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies as a method of payment for major companies and also makes coins, like Ethereum and Dogecoin, known to a wider range of people worldwide.
