Dubai-based Umbrellab launched Piiko in April as the first step in the bitcoin startup incubator’s grand plans to simplify utility payments for the world’s unbanked masses.

Covering mobile plans in over 100 countries including the major markets of US, UK, China, and Brazil, Piiko allows users to add money to their pre-paid mobile phone using the decentralized digital currency.
