We're excited to announce our new partnership with FastBitcoins.com, allowing us to offer Bitcoin voucher redemption codes as a way to purchase and gift Bitcoin to anyone, anywhere, without needing to use a traditional exchange or ATM. For the first time ever, these vouchers enable you to redeem Bitcoin directly into your Lighting Network wallet, or you can choose to send them directly to any regular Bitcoin address.
A Bitcoin voucher, or "BV", is a way to buy Bitcoin without initiating an on-chain transaction until a special gift code is redeemed with the provider at FastBitcoins.com. It’s fast and easy.
These gift cards allow you to gift Bitcoin to anyone, even if they do not have a wallet yet, or if they do not have an account at a traditional Bitcoin exchange. You control when and where to redeem your BTC.
After you have purchased your voucher, you will need to visit the FastBitcoins.com website and provide an email address along with your redemption code and Bitcoin address to receive your Bitcoin. Once you redeem your code, the Bitcoin transaction will be broadcast instantly. Redemptions are limited to $1000 worth of Bitcoin per day, with additional amounts requiring ID verification with FastBitcoins.com.
You can redeem your Bitcoin voucher directly onto the Lighting Network!
