Cryptocurrency can grant users many things that fiat money cannot. But for it to be a viable alternative to fiat money, it must also offer users the same utilities. One of these utilities is the redeemable voucher. With modern life leaving many people with little time for shopping of any kind, many turn to gift cards for those special occasions. This is also true for holders of cryptocurrency.
Keen to make sure BTCV provides users with all traditional utilities, Bitcoin Vault is always looking for new partnerships and initiatives. Now, thanks to a partnership with Freewallet, BTCV users have access to a wide range of gift cards.
Freewallet is primarily a multi-currency crypto wallet. It provides users with a safe place to store their funds. But it also offers a wide variety of products and services, such as in-wallet exchanges and purchases with fiat. More importantly, it offers users a selection of gift cards from many popular brands from different sectors.
Brands and Availability
Thanks to this partnership, BTCV users now have even more ways to convert cryptocurrency into real-world goods and services. Users can purchase gift cards from their favorite brands using BTCV on Freewallet. Adidas, Nike, Decathlon, The Body Shop, Topshop, AppStore, Google Play, iTunes, Ikea, eBay, Burger King, Starbucks, Ticketmaster, Global Hotel Card, and Uber are just some of the brands users can choose from. This ever-increasing list of e-commerce and local stores covers Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Spending and Expiration Limits
Gift cards start as low as USD 1 and go as high as USD 1,000. But BTCV’s enhanced security solutions could lead to the upper limit being increased. Moreover, the expiration dates are reassuringly long. Many of these gift cards can stay in your wallet for much longer than is usually necessary.
Freewallet offers mobile users a user-friendly application, available on both Android and iOS. This is great for those who prefer to do their shopping on the move or during breaks. But Freewallet is also available as a web application for desktop browsing.
