Can I buy crypto with a gift card?

Since time immemorial, assets have been converted to other times. Conversions like Fiat currencies for houses, Bitcoin for other cryptocurrencies, fiat currencies for Bitcoin and vice versa are trendy. On the other hand, the transformation of gift cards to crypto is relatively new, so you must be careful in deciding on the platform to execute the transaction.

Every gift card trader always looks out for the quality of exchange platforms before use. If you don’t look out for quality, getting scammed or ripped would be very easy. You must look out for specific attributes and features, which are discussed below.

  • Transparency

Buying Bitcoins with gift cards is a relatively new technology, and not everyone is conversant. That is why choosing a transparent Bitcoin gift card exchange platform is essential. Choose a very open platform about its fees because some platforms charge hidden charges without consent. Also, ensure that the government is aware of their dealings through registration. 

  • Security

Choose a gift card exchange platform with a strong defence against hacks, divulging, and embezzlement of digital assets by unauthorized third parties. That way, you will be sure that your assets are safe.

  • Popularity

Choose an exchange platform that is popular and has an active social media presence. Inactive social media presence is a huge red flag and enough grounds not to use such a platform. You can also check the reviews of other traders on review platforms like Trust Pilot.

  • User-friendly interface 

It is essential to choose an exchange platform that is easy to use. When a platform is intuitive, it makes it easier to navigate. A good gift card exchange platform provides essential information to guide you when starting to trade gift cards for bitcoins.

  • Best rates

A good exchange platform must have your best interests at heart by helping you maximize your profits by selling gift cards at the best rates.

  • Instant payment and support

A good exchange platform doesn’t delay your payment. And in cases of delay, their customer service is always within reach to help you sort it out.

In Nigeria, there are four outstanding platforms that have these features available in their apps and websites. These platforms are discussed below.

Paxful

Paxful is one of the oldest gift card exchange platform in Nigeria. Paxful is a peer to peer marketplace that allows buyers and sellers to meet online and sell their assets. Because of the p2p feature, there have several reports of scams on the platform and Paxful responded by reinforcing the platform with robust security technology.
