Reservations on Airbnb could be paid with crypto gift cards
Digital gift cards provider Bitrefill announced on its Twitter profile two days ago that it had added a possibility to pay for reservations on Airbnb using crypto gift cards. Customers could buy such crypto gift cards using some major cryptos including Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. However, this announcement does not mean that Airbnb accepts or handles cryptocurrencies. Crypto gift cards provided by Bitrefill could be bought using cryptocurrencies (currently, this possiblity is available for only American residents), but clients receive a US dollar equivalent (it’s a voucher product), that could be used for reservations. Nevertheless, this step may be another one popularising cryptocurrencies in daily life.
