Title: Coinbase Launches Crypto Gift Card Service in Europe
Post by: Crypto Deep on July 28, 2018, 11:07:37 AM
Coinbase has integrated its wallet services with WeGift, a London-based online gift card platform, and now allows users to purchase gift cards with cryptocurrency stored in their Coinbase wallets. Currently, the exchange supports bitcoin, bitcoin cash, litecoin and ethereum, with more likely to be added soon. Based on information provided by WeGift's website, gift cards purchased by cryptocurrencies can be used in over 120 retailers that accept WeGift, including Tesco, M&S, Uber, Carrefour, Google Play and Costa.

Now it is understood that the way to spend are prepaid cards, gift cards, cards for various markets. Conbase is seeing all the ways to establish itself as a leader.

Gift cards are the best replcament of paper money,I guess. ;D
It would be easier for the people to adopt cryptocurrenices if they combine them with something they are already familiar with-giftcards.This is a pretty clever idea by Wegift and Coinbase.I`m not a big Coinbase fan,but they have a good expansion strategy.

So finally bitcoin adaption is going slowly slowly. with this kind gift cards peoples can buy products i hope Amazon and other E commerce websites will sell  their Gifts cards via Coinbase also accept payment directly as a bitcoin or other cryptocurrency. i will be happy when Indian websites Amazon,flipkart will accept payment via crypto, in all wallets Coinbase is best because of this reason many companies are doing tie-up with coinbase.
coinbase has reliable security, so far I have not heard the news of the coinbase being exposed to the problem of rampant hackers in many reputable exchanges, perhaps this is the reason many companies choose coinbase

Wow! This is great! I can now send cryptocurrencies as gift via gift cards :) I hope that it will expand faster not only in Europe but also here in Asia. I love it if my favorite coins will be added also on their list. Crypto is really being accepted now worldwide. More projects like this in the future ;)

I don't use Coinbase, but it might be actually useful for people who don't want to bother with selling their bitcoins and withdrawing fiat. However, it is not a solution to lack of shops which accept cryptocurrencies.

Personally, I would rather print a paper wallet which I would put in an envelope and teach the other person how to move bitcoins associated with the private key of that wallet instead of buying e-gift card.

Few years from now there will be a lot of people that will be adopting crypto. With this kind of strategy that coinbase and Wegift is exhibiting, they are also promoting the name of crypto by tying it up into gift cards. This will surely have huge impact on the performance of crypto market.

Copinbase is trying to make their appearance more stable and clear to people by offering various services and Gifts. With this, It will gain more popularity though it has a leading Benchmark in the market. Gift offers would be really appreciated by American and European  crypto enthusiasts as well as us. It must give us such kind of gifts also.

Yeah this is a clear move into the mainstream. I've seen a few projects around that center around giftcards in an attempt to give people an easier way to spend their money. It's a good concept for sure. Certainly would make more people think that they can use bitcoin.

I wonder what the tax obligations would be on that? How do they handle reporting? Or maybe coinbase is just reporting everything in your account anyway, and it doesn't matter if it goes out through the gift cards or not.

Stunning! This is awesome! I would now be able to send digital forms of money as blessing by means of gift vouchers. I trust that it will extend quicker in Europe as well as here in Asia. I cherish it if my most loved coins will be included likewise their rundown. Crypto is truly being acknowledged now around the world.

This could make a big difference to the acceptability of crypto if the retailer is aware, however if the retailer is unaware that the customer is spending crypto there will be no advantage except possibly as a money laundering tool.

According to me Coinbase has done the right thing of thinking out of the box and came up with such useful service. Gift cards are very convenient to use and unique too considering the crypto market. Coinbase has definitely gain more popularity due to this decision. Which is a great news for all the parties involved.

Coinbase is a very famous and popular crypto wallet in our country, But In Bitcointalk forum, CXoinbase seems underrated. I love this exchanger come wallet more than any bitcoin wallet. This year, Coinbase is taking a much good decision to increase its platform, and they have a plan to support ERC20 Coins too! And now Coinbase launches Crypto gift car5d service, But only for Europe. I think it is a limitation of coinbase, in many countries, coinbase limited their services. But I hope as conbase increasing its platform so we can hope that Crypto gift card will be available for all country, and it will be a new amazing thing for the crypto lovers.

Even though it seems to be monopoly economy but my opinion it's good for Bitcoin distribution it self, because many people can using their Btc to many option transaction. Coinbase can be good example for others exchanges to do the same thing and promotes Bitcoin widely.

Bounty and mining both costs something to start or get into it. Mining costs you expensive equipment and a wide amount of knowledge and experience you have to possess to be a good miner. and also you need to spend a handsome time with it. Bounty is free to start as they hire you to do various jobs for their ICO. But you may have a well-experienced profile to get a good bounty and also you may have the experience to do best. So, this is your turn to choose what you are comfortable with./ I prefer mining.

This is another cryptocurrency promotion and as we all know that coinbase is one of the biggest crypto exchange in the world. Thus, the need for expansion will help the company to establish a good rapport among the investors and their exchange. This gift card will help promote also their exchange. This is one of the basic in marketing that one should have even though how establish your company is it will not matter because the important thing is that rapport or establishing efforts on the clients to maintain its relationship.

This is massive and simply allows for an indirect way to spend Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash,
Ethereum and litecoin with 100's of retailers who dont accept crypto directly.
I will be able to buy weekly groceries with Crypto (in a slightly round-a-bout way)

The idea of including gift cards seems a really cool one to me and I'm actually liking it. It's so evident that Coinbase is working hard to go to a whole another level, making it different from the others. I bet this has managed to attract many and I'm included in it obviously. I'm really excited and looking forward to use this feature of Coinbase.

It's nice that Coinbase is implementing that would be recognize easily. I think what they did is a good step to introduce cryptocurrency in a light way and with less hassle. They are giving cryptocurrency another way to be use and this adoption would surely be put in good use.

I have not seen such gift cards anywhere! I know that in Australia you can buy a coupon with a certain amount of bitcoins and exchange it for money! such coupons will be very popular among many people!
