Caricoin has partnered with airtime merchant Bitrefill Bitrefill to seamlessly integrate mobile top up functionality into its mobile wallet. Caricoin users at home and abroad can now use bitcoin to quickly and easily top up their mobile phones or send credit to anyone in the Caribbean at great rates, directly from within the Caricoin app.
Networks supported in the region include Digicel, Flow, bMobile and Claro, among others.
The mobile top-up market in the Caribbean currently stands at over US$300 million annually. With lower fees an integral part of using bitcoin as the currency of choice for online transactions, the region could potentially save millions of dollars per year in add-on charges with Caricoin’s bitcoin-based mobile wallet.
Since over 50% of the Caribbean’s population remains unbanked and without access to credit cards, these persons can easily use Caricoin’s wallet to instantly send, share and re-distribute bitcoin which can then be used to purchase mobile credit at any time.
Bitrefill’s online service facilitates easy top-up of mobile plans around the world using bitcoin and other digital currencies. They are partnered with many major mobile operators around the world including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Vodafone and Orange.
Bitrefill lets you top up any prepaid mobile phone using bitcoin. They support prepaid SIM cards from over 700 operators in 150 countries.
