<title>XRP relisted on CoinGate: now available to be bought, paid with and accepted as a payment for non-US citizens</title>

<description>&lt;h2&gt;&lt;span&gt;Blockchain payment processor company &lt;span&gt;&lt;a href=”https://coingate.com/accept”&gt;CoinGate&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt; is relisting XRP as a tradeable, payable and payment-acceptable asset for its non-US users. This decision was made after the recent progress happening in the lawsuit between SEC and Ripple Labs, favoring the latter.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted.png”&gt;&lt;img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-4762″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted.png” alt=”xrp relisted on CoinGate” width=”2468″ height=”1290″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted.png 2468w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-150×78.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-300×157.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-768×401.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-1024×535.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-1240×648.png 1240w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-860×450.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-680×355.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-500×261.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-400×209.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-200×105.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/04/66e8818c-xrprelisted-50×26.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 2468px) 100vw, 2468px”&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;span&gt;XRP was on the brink of its virtual end, after the SEC filed its lawsuit against Ripple Labs back in December 2020, alleging the company violating U.S securities laws in selling XRP to retailers. This had instant repercussions for XRP, as many US-based crypto platforms and exchanges started delisting one of the most popular digital assets out there.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;However, the case began to turn in Ripple’s favor after the first court hearings, where one of the judges observed that XRP “also has a utility and that utility distinguished it [XRP] from Bitcoin and Ether”&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Consequently, once the tides started to turn out of SEC’s favor, XRP price began to rally, surging above $1.03 (75% increase per 7 days) as of time of writing. The price increase signalizes both the well-perceived gear shift in the lawsuit, as well as the growing demand from the crypto community to relist XRP in crypto platforms.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Knowing this, CoinGate is announcing that it is relisting XRP as a tradeable and payable asset for its non-US citizens. The geographical restrictions are still compulsory as there is still legal uncertainty in the lawsuit between SEC and Ripple.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;span&gt;XRP can be bought by credit or debit card, SEPA bank transfer, Klarna or mobile credit. It can also be used to pay any invoices via the &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;a href=”https://coingate.com/”&gt;&lt;span&gt;CoinGate’s dashboard&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt; when logged in and accepted as a mean of payment for merchants.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;b&gt;Here are more articles from CoinGate that might be relevant to you:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

<title>Auto ID verification for traders: verify in 5 minutes!</title>
<link>https://blog.coingate.com/2021/03/fast-verification/
<guid ispermalink=”false”>https://blog.coingate.com/?p=4753</guid>
<description>&lt;h2&gt;&lt;span&gt;Verifying your identity does not have to be a frustrating experience, so we made sure that our traders can go through the whole process in just five minutes.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4754″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min.png” alt=”fast verification at coingate” width=”2468″ height=”1290″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min.png 2468w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-150×78.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-300×157.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-768×401.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-1024×535.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-1240×648.png 1240w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-860×450.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-680×355.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-500×261.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-400×209.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-200×105.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/b46633b2-5_min-50×26.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 2468px) 100vw, 2468px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;We’re speaking of what essentially is a first tier verification, which means a full one will be required at times when the user intends to exceed Tier I limits.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;However, for 90% of our traders, Tier I is enough to satisfy their daily needs: any eligible user who verifies himself on this level will be able to trade cryptocurrencies with fiat with a &lt;b&gt;€&lt;/b&gt;&lt;b&gt;1,000 limit per day &lt;/b&gt;up to €5000 using their SEPA bank account or Klarna (different limits apply to mobile purchases).&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Traders are also complemented with a renewed user interface which is now much more convenient and pleasant to eye.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;h2&gt;&lt;span&gt;How to verify trader’s identity fast: Tier I&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Tier I verification requires users to provide their &lt;b&gt;full name, country of residence and personal ID &lt;/b&gt;only. All our customers go through live ID verification using our partner’s Onfido platform.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4341″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id.jpg” alt=”simplified KYC requirements” width=”1135″ height=”679″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id.jpg 1135w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-150×90.jpg 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-300×179.jpg 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-768×459.jpg 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-1024×613.jpg 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-860×514.jpg 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-680×407.jpg 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-500×299.jpg 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-400×239.jpg 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-200×120.jpg 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/06/cf8b6ff2-verification-id-50×30.jpg 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1135px) 100vw, 1135px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;According to the local Lithuanian laws, this is the information that has to be shown on the document for us to consider it as a valid ID:&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;ul&gt;
&lt;li aria-level=”1″&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;span&gt;Name and Surname;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
&lt;li aria-level=”1″&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Nationality or Citizenship;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;
&lt;ul&gt;
&lt;li aria-level=”1″&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Date of Birth or Personal Code;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;
&lt;ul&gt;
&lt;li aria-level=”1″&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Signature.&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;To start the verification process:&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;ol&gt;
&lt;li&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;a href=”https://coingate.com/register” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”&gt;Register for CoinGate account&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt; or sign up with the existing;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;&lt;span&gt;Go to the “&lt;i&gt;Account settings-&amp;gt;Verification”&lt;/i&gt; menu section or&lt;span&gt; &lt;a href=”https://dashboard.coingate.com/account/settings/verification” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”&gt;click here&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;, then select the &lt;i&gt;“Continue to Trial Verification” &lt;/i&gt;option;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;&lt;span&gt;Upload a copy of ID card or passport with a selfie;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;&lt;span&gt;Finalize the verification.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ol&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Right after that, your account should be verified immediately and you will be fully ready to use CoinGate trading options.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;For a full verification and increased trading limits, please refer to &lt;a href=”https://blog.coingate.com/2019/05/verify-trader-account-guide/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”&gt;&lt;span&gt;this article&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

<title>How To Spend Cryptocurrencies For Things You Want</title>
<link>https://blog.coingate.com/2021/03/spend-crypto-for-everything/
<guid ispermalink=”false”>https://blog.coingate.com/?p=4740</guid>
<description>&lt;h2&gt;&lt;span&gt;Every cryptocurrency or token out there has a purpose, some predetermined use case that makes it useful in the hands of its holder.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4747″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog.png” alt=”buy anything with crypto with gift cards” width=”2468″ height=”1290″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog.png 2468w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-150×78.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-300×157.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-768×401.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-1024×535.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-1240×648.png 1240w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-860×450.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-680×355.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-500×261.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-400×209.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-200×105.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/dddd5f10-img1_2468x1290_blog-50×26.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 2468px) 100vw, 2468px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;For example, the king of all virtual assets Bitcoin is now getting appreciation as a hedge against fiat currency inflation and acts as an alternative store of value to gold. Ether, the second most successful crypto by market cap, is used to fuel smart contracts and dapps on the Ethereum network.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Usefulness is what seems to determine how valuable and demanded cryptocurrency can or should be.&lt;b&gt; But for most regular people, the value derives from the ability to spend it on everyday necessities.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;At this moment, there are more than 8,800 cryptocurrencies created and used for various reasons. Most of them indeed cannot be spent on anything other than other cryptos on an exchange.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Good news is, in 2021, that fact no longer applies to coins sitting at the top of the crypto market food chain.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;If you know how (to be honest, it is almost effortless), &lt;b&gt;you can buy anything using crypto, &lt;/b&gt;do it fast and without much of a hassle, whether you want to spend Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ether, Nano, TRON and few other popular currencies.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;And by saying &lt;i&gt;anything&lt;/i&gt;, it means &lt;i&gt;anything at all&lt;/i&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;&lt;span&gt;So how can I buy things with Bitcoin or other crypto assets?&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;There are a few ways to go about spending Bitcoin and other coins, depending on a thing (or things) that you wish to buy.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4749″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800.png” alt=”buying gift cards on coingate” width=”1200″ height=”801″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800.png 1200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-150×100.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-300×200.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-768×513.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-1024×684.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-860×574.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-680×454.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-500×334.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-400×267.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-200×134.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/ad8dda42-img3_1200x800-50×33.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The first option is to rely on online shops that have a crypto payment option set up.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Right now, there are thousands of merchants around the world that take various crypto assets for payments. Besides, they make themselves easy to find by listing their services on websites dedicated to a single purpose of listing and showcasing &lt;span&gt;&lt;a href=”https://coingate.com/stores/?utm_source=native_ad&amp;amp;utm_medium=article&amp;amp;utm_campaign=nativead_gift_cards&amp;amp;utm_term=nativead_gift_cards” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”&gt;crypto-friendly merchants&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The process of paying with crypto at such stores is ultimately the same as you would spend Euros or Dollars with your credit card online: you select merchandise, go to checkout, make a payment and there’s that.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;However, most businesses that accept crypto payments come from niche industries like Adult, VPN or hosting services, and there’s a good chance that you’d like to buy something more desirable or necessary.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Items like smartphones, computers, video games and everyday consumer goods naturally come to mind first.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;But, even though Bitcoin is already 12 years old, it’s still not that easy to find reliable first-hand sellers that would offer such an inventory for it. And, if you attempt to buy something with any other cryptocurrency or token, the task becomes borderline impossible.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Surely, there has to be something that we can do about that in 2021?&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;And you would be right to ask that question. As mentioned before, there &lt;b&gt;is another way to spend bitcoin and a bunch of other virtual assets for things that are not commonly sold for them&lt;/b&gt;, and do so without leaving your comfort zone.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;&lt;span&gt;Use gift cards to spend Bitcoin on anything &amp;amp; everything&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4750″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800.png” alt=”buy anything with crypto” width=”1200″ height=”801″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800.png 1200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-150×100.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-300×200.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-768×513.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-1024×684.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-860×574.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-680×454.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-500×334.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-400×267.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-200×134.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/108bab9b-img2_1200x800-50×33.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;While you cannot spend Bitcoin or other crypto assets directly on marketplaces like Amazon or eBay,&lt;b&gt; it is possible to buy Amazon or &lt;/b&gt;&lt;b&gt;other&lt;/b&gt;&lt;b&gt; gift cards with crypto instead.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;And these two are just examples – today the range of gift cards accessible for cryptocurrencies are quite vast and available in most regions of the world, including Europe, the USA, Canada and several others.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;This option is made possible by electronic gift card sellers such as &lt;a href=”https://coingate.com/gift-cards/?utm_source=native_ad&amp;amp;utm_medium=article&amp;amp;utm_campaign=nativead_gift_cards&amp;amp;utm_term=nativead_gift_cards”&gt;CoinGate&lt;/a&gt;.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;As of now, the service offers 600+ gift cards and vouchers including giants Amazon, eBay, Google Play and Sony Playstation, essentially giving your cryptocurrencies that same purchasing power that your regular money in the pocket has.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Getting gift cards for cryptocurrencies is getting increasingly popular amongst crypto holders not only as a way to buy things for yourself.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;It is also proved useful when you need a quick gift for any occasion, or even transfer something of value abroad to your family instead of using costly money transfer services.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The numbers do not lie, and they agree. Since CoinGate opened its gift card retail service in July of 2020, the number of voucher sales have been increasing every month by at least 30%.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;But the sales truly skyrocketed right at the start of the year 2021 – compared to December, CoinGate sold 50% more gift cards in January, reaching a monthly average in just 15 days.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;It just shows how great the demand is for such a service and how useful people find it in their daily lives, which is one of the reasons why the company is expanding its service to the massive user base of India as of this moment.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;But is the service as easy to use as it sounds?&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;&lt;span&gt;Buying a gift card with Bitcoin (email delivery)&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Short answer: &lt;i&gt;yes&lt;/i&gt;.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;First off, select any gift card that you want from &lt;span&gt;&lt;a href=”https://coingate.com/gift-cards/all?utm_source=native_ad&amp;amp;utm_medium=article&amp;amp;utm_campaign=nativead_gift_cards&amp;amp;utm_term=nativead_gift_cards” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”&gt;CoinGate gift cards store&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;. There’s a search option to look for a specific card, or you can sort the inventory by voucher’s popularity, date added and available countries. Otherwise, try browsing the store by categories and see what it has to offer.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4742″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift.png” alt=”coingate gift cards landing page” width=”1836″ height=”827″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift.png 1836w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-150×68.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-300×135.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-768×346.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-1024×461.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-1240×559.png 1240w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-860×387.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-680×306.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-500×225.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-400×180.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-200×90.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-50×23.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1836px) 100vw, 1836px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;When you find something that you like, simply select the gift card, enter the amount and add it to the cart.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4743″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2.png” alt=”amazon gift cards coingate” width=”1068″ height=”733″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2.png 1068w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-150×103.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-300×206.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-768×527.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-1024×703.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-860×590.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-680×467.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-500×343.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-400×275.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-200×137.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2021/03/gift-2-50×34.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1068px) 100vw, 1068px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Once on a checkout window, provide an email address. That’s where the gift card will be delivered.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;There’s also an option to send a gift card as a present to someone else’s email if that’s what you want to do.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4443″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4.png” alt=”chekcout” width=”1300″ height=”873″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4.png 1300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-150×101.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-300×201.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-768×516.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-1024×688.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-1240×833.png 1240w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-860×578.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-680×457.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-500×336.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-400×269.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-200×134.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/f3af4612-4-50×34.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1300px) 100vw, 1300px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Right after you enter the email address, you will see several payment options to choose from. The service allows paying for vouchers with Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), XRP, Nano, Dai, Travala.com Token (AVA), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), TRON or BitTorrent Token (BTT).&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4444″ src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5.png” alt=”Coingate payment currencies” width=”1077″ height=”466″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5.png 1077w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-150×65.png 150w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-300×130.png 300w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-768×332.png 768w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-1024×443.png 1024w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-860×372.png 860w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-680×294.png 680w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-500×216.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-400×173.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-200×87.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/5-50×22.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1077px) 100vw, 1077px”&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The service also supports payments via Lightning Network for Bitcoin and Litecoin so you can save some money off of network fees as well.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;img class=” wp-image-4445 alignleft” src=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/6.png” alt=”gift card invoice” width=”377″ height=”498″ srcset=”https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/6.png 644w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/6-114×150.png 114w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/6-227×300.png 227w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/6-500×660.png 500w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/6-400×528.png 400w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/6-200×264.png 200w, https://wp-blog-assets.coingate.com/2020/08/6-50×66.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 377px) 100vw, 377px”&gt;Once you click that “Pay with crypto” button, all there will be left to do is make a payment. Either scan the QR code with your mobile wallet or copy the address and send the exact amount of cryptocurrency to it that way.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The best part is, gift cards are sent to you by email in minutes after the payment is made.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;This is it! It’s that easy to get a gift card that you want, and it doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to go through the whole process. Just make sure you always select the correct region before making a purchase.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;If you’re not sure how to redeem gift cards for the service, no need to worry – instructions on how to do it can be found on your gift card’s description page.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Hopefully, you will use this knowledge to your advantage and treat yourself or someone close to you with something special while you’re at it. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Good luck!&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
