One of the highly-sought Crypto gift cards – Bitrefill – has just heralded the inception of Airbnb support. This, of course, implies that users will now be in a position to purchase gift cards for this online home and apartment rental giant in exchange for Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dash or Dogecoin.
These vouchers will be paid in denominations of $50, $100 and $25. It will be possible to apply these gift cards to any short-term reservation as long as its under 28 nights, at least for US citizens.
Speaking of which, Bitrefill already supports more than 1800 business and private entities scattered across a wide range of different sectors. Thanks to this, Crypto holders can conveniently spend altcoins or bitcoin in popular retailers and brands such as REI, Nike, Petco, GameStop and mainstream online e-commerce portals, the likes of Amazon, eBay, Steam and Hotels.com.

This startup, which has its roots in Stockholm, also allows digital currency users and crypto holders to top up the credit on their phones from nearly 1000 supported mobile network operators.
And this is typically as easy as typing in a phone number followed by the amount that a person wishes to refill and the payment is loaded instantly and confirmed within less than a minute.
The service is available in more than 160 different countries. What's more, Bitrefill says that its platform can give consumers access to more than a million different retail products across a huge number of different categories such as travel, retail or tech.
In other words, it is simply empowering people to ‘live wholly on crypto' by giving them a means of purchasing everyday items through digital currency.
