One of the biggest no-coiner complaints about living on crypto is always something along the lines of “Can I pay my rent with it? Can I pay my bills?” Bitrefill is proud to finally lay this skepticism to rest with a resounding “YES!”. Now you can easily pay 20,000 bills in the US with crypto.
Crypto got a major usability upgrade with Bitrefill’s Bill Payments
Be one of the first Bitrefillers to get access to Crypto Bill Payments, here.
Creating a parallel circular crypto economy from the ground up is no simple task. Aside from the learning curve of onboarding new users, we are working very hard to bring new groundbreaking crypto payment options and services which give everyone from newbies to seasoned hodlers a way to truly exit currency devaluation, by making their crypto truly usable.
One of the most parroted criticisms of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other popular cryptocurrencies is that you can’t really spend them in the “real world” on things like rent, mortgages, light bills, water, cable, taxes, and other monthly expenses we all need to pay for.
Bitrefill has just completely destroyed this rebuttal by adding the option to pay 20,000 different kinds of bills with crypto, via our brand new crypto bill payments service, for US customers. You can now literally pay any bill in the US with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, Dogecoin, Litecoin, and USDT on Ethereum & Tron, and 50 additional altcoins and stablecoins with Binance Pay.
Starting today, users in the US will be able to pay their credit card bills, utilities, healthcare, mortgage payments and 20,000 other types of bills using crypto. Even taxes! With a few simple clicks people can start breaking up their dysfunctional reliance on traditional banks.
Pay Any Bill, From Nationwide Companies to Regional Utilities & Everything in Between
Use your coins to directly pay for everything from home & auto loans, social security, insurance, credit cards, property taxes, healthcare, funerals, and more. Pay with crypto at nationwide companies like Wells Fargo, Chase, Bank of America, American Express, Citi, and US Bank, United Healthcare, Anthem, USAA, Hartford, Progressive, Geico, Allstate, and thousands of others.
This service will be launched in collaboration with a regulated financial partner and will require users to have an ID-verified account with a US residency. The only thing you need to get started is getting your Bitrefill account verified. You can learn more about Bitrefill account verification, here.
Due to the overwhelming demand we expect to have for the option to pay bills with crypto from crypto users all over the US, we are rolling out bill payments with a waiting list, which will be first come, first served. We are working around the clock to scale our new service to every US Bitrefill customer, but it will take time.
Bill payments are a game changer for people who earn crypto by trading, working remotely, or offering their goods and services to others in exchange for crypto. You can now functionally pay for everything with crypto, without ever needing to touch a state-issued national currency.
The First of Many Things From El Salvador’s Bitcoin Experiment
Initially, we added crypto bill payments only for Bitrefill’s customers in El Salvador, since the Bitcoin legal tender law and crypto-friendly regulatory structure made this possible. We didn’t really know what to expect, since El Salvador is pioneering a circular Bitcoin economy, and there’s nothing else to compare it to.
The explosive growth we witnessed for bill payment services in El Salvador, has given us the empirical data to demonstrate that this is a service that crypto users want and need, all over the world. We have seen our bill payments volume in El Salvador increase at a jaw dropping 100%-200% per month, each and every month, since the Bitcoin law was launched last September.
We expect to see a tidal wave of innovative new crypto services, tested and proved in El Salvador, and then rolled out worldwide, not just by us, but by all the Bitcoin and crypto companies establishing a presence in the world’s first Bitcoin nation. Bill Payments are just the beginning!
As always, Pay with Bitcoin, Lightning Network, Ethereum, Dash, Dogecoin, Litecoin, USDT (ERC-20 & TRC-20), credit/debit via Wyre, and more than 50 additional altcoins and stablecoins with Binance Pay. Earn 1% bitcoin back on every purchase!
