TOKYO, Oct. 31, 2018 Bitcoin Cash (BCH) just became more usable with the launch of a partnership between Bitcoin.com and eGifter, a gift card marketplace offering 300+ top-branded eGift cards to US and global brands. Customers will be able to shop for eGift cards directly from the Bitcoin.com store at launch, and in the coming weeks, straight from the Bitcoin.com wallet.
The partnership between eGifter and Bitcoin.com will allow existing BCH users to use cryptocurrency in a new way. The seamless user experience will give users many new options on how to spend their BCH, buying eGift cards for themselves or giving them as gifts. The choices include premium food, entertainment and retail brands, all with the security and freedom of cryptocurrency.
The solution is an extension of the eGifter Marketplace, where eGifter serves as the merchant of record and provides level-one support for all users. "Bitcoin.com has a large and growing user base, so eGifter is excited about this new partnership as we are always looking for ways to drive more traffic to the eGifter platform, and more business for our brand partners," said Tyler Roye, eGifter CEO. The eGifter platform is designed to meet all of the brand partners' requirements, ensuring the consumer is presented with the proper terms, redemption instruction, seasonal faceplates, and both printable and mobile gift certs.
"Creating new ways for our users to spend their Bitcoin Cash on goods and services has been a top priority for us at Bitcoin.com," says Blake Moore, Bitcoin.com eCommerce Manager. "By partnering with eGifter, we have made 300+ eGift cards from leading brands available to our valued users. Our development team has created some real magic in the wallet integration, where it will be possible to spend your existing Bitcoin Cash balance on eGift cards in just a few clicks."
The eGifter/Bitcoin.com collaboration is all about streamlining the consumer experience. Users will be able to go into their Bitcoin.com wallet and use the balance to choose from a wide variety of eGift cards. eGift cards from top global retailers, as well as premium region-specific brands and favorite dining spots, can be sent virtually by email or text--or even printed right away at home.
Just as eGifter aims to revolutionize gift cards with easier transactions, a smoother customer experience, and the simplest gifting process possible, BCH is poised to revolutionize the way we think about money. With low network fees and virtually immediate transactions, BCH is a fast, secure form of digital peer-to-peer electronic cash. And with an increasing number of partnerships with innovative brands like eGifter, it can easily be used by anyone, anywhere, across the globe.
