South African Fintech Supports Essential Purchases Using Bitcoin

South African fintech, Centbee has launched a new feature in its Bitcoin wallet that allows users to purchase prepaid electricity, airtime and data.

How to use Centbee to buy essential services with Bitcoin:

South African Centbee users will find a new ‘buy’ button in the Centbee app menu where they can purchase prepaid electricity, airtime and data from mobile networks.

“This is the reason I built the Centbee app. To make bitcoin useful, convenient and accessible so that anyone with a mobile phone can use it like cash, which was always bitcoin’s vision. Now, with a way to buy everyday products and services with Bitcoin, we’re one step closer to making Bitcoin the everyday electronic cash that millions of people can use,” says Lorien Gamaroff, Centbee co-founder.

Making Bitcoin useful for consumers has always been a priority for Centbee and the Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (SV) blockchain is the obvious choice for large transaction volumes at the lowest cost.

BitcoinSV is the only blockchain that can scale exponentially and its industry players are known for their unyielding commitment to regulatory compliance and supporting traceable and legal transactions.

The BitcoinSV blockchain restores the original protocol described in the Bitcoin Whitepaper in 2009 by bitcoin creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, and fulfils the vision for bitcoin as peer-to-peer electronic cash.

Download the Centbee app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
