Bitcoin-friendly mobile top-up platform Bitrefill announced support for eSIM purchases with a number of cryptocurrencies. The service will allow travelers to have access to fast internet in different countries around the world after buying prepaid data plans using their digital coins.
You Can Now Buy eSIM Cards From Bitrefill Using Your Crypto Wallet
Bitrefill, a popular website for buying gift cards and mobile top-ups with cryptocurrency, has introduced support for eSIM purchases. The new feature will allow crypto users to have instant mobile internet connection without the need to change SIM cards when they travel, the company highlighted in a blog post on Tuesday, stating:
In our quest to continually innovate and make the lives of our customers easier to live on crypto, you can now enjoy seamless global connectivity, no matter where you are, without the hassle of physical SIM cards.
An eSIM is a digital SIM card that allows you to activate a cellular plan from a carrier without using a physical SIM. That lets you keep your primary SIM card while purchasing and using an eSIM card, which is practical and saves time, Bitrefill explained.
The service can also save you unpleasant surprises in terms of unexpected roaming costs as you will be using prepaid data. “If you’re a traveler, no matter if frequent or occasional, an eSIM is the most flexible and practical solution to get internet access almost anywhere in the world,” the company added.
Bitrefill offers crypto enthusiasts a range of local, regional, and global eSIMs. To take advantage of the feature, you need to first make sure your mobile device supports this type of digital SIM card and then choose an eSIM plan. You need to provide an email address at checkout.
The eSIMs can be bought with bitcoin (BTC) and ethereum (ETH), among other cryptocurrencies and stablecoins like tether (USDT). Bitrefill also accepts major fiat currencies, including U.S. dollar, euro, British pound and more.
