As the digital asset industry continues its rapid growth, Freewallet, one of the most popular crypto wallet platforms, has continued to transform itself into a one-stop-shop for all of its users’ crypto needs. The latest changes to the platform consist of the full-rollout of a gift card feature and the integration of MoonPay, which has improved users’ capability of purchasing crypto with fiat-based bank cards.
After a trial run started late last year, Freewallet has now fully launched a gift card feature aimed at making its users’ lives easier from an e-commerce perspective. With the new feature, users can now buy gift cards for online and brick and mortar businesses with any cryptocurrency supported by the platform. The process is simple and can be completed in just a few minutes.
To make the feature possible Freewallet has partnered with over 800+ brands from around the world, including Amazon, eBay, iTunes, and many more. The feature comes with a search tool that allows users to organize their options according to popularity or alphabetical order and includes offerings from a wide variety of stores covering a whole spectrum of consumer needs, including beauty & lifestyle, booksellers, department stores, electronics, entertainment, food & drink, home & DIY, jewelers, leisure & sports, men’s fashion, supermarkets, toys & games, travel, and women’s fashion.
These gift cards make the perfect gift option for crypto enthusiasts looking to do something special for their friends and loved ones, and even a great way to treat themselves without having to use fiat. Each gift card can range in value from $1-1,000, depending on the user’s preference.
The gift card feature is just one of the recent changes to be introduced to the platform. Another significant development has been the integration of MoonPay, one of the industry’s premier fiat to crypto transaction facilitators. By bringing in MoonPay, Freewallet has enhanced its purchase with card function. Now users can use any of the 42 major fiat currencies supported by MoonPay to purchase Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), BitcoinCash (BCH), Chiliz (CHZ), Litecoin (LTC), Stellar (XLM), USD coin (USDC), EOS, TRON (TRX), NEO, DAI, VeChain (VET), Zilliqa (ZIL), TrueUSD (TUSD), 0x (ZRX), Paxos Standard Token (PAX), Decentraland (MANA), Civic (CVC), EOSDT, and USDT20.
These changes are the result of the continuous dialogue between the Freewallet development team and its community. As the platform continues to grow it has made it a priority to become an all-inclusive crypto hub for its users. Freewallet prides itself on pairing groundbreaking technology with intuitive simplicity.
Solomon Brown, Head of PR at Freewallet, had this to say about the changes,
“We are really pleased that we can introduce more useful features for our users. We have been quite lucky in that we have been able to gather a large community around our platform and listen to the feedback they provide us with. It is amazing to see both the strides that we have taken as a service and the progress being made in the industry as a whole. We hope that our users will enjoy the new gift card feature as well as the retooled exchange.”
