In June 2017, CoinGate has introduced the first of its kind option to buy Bitcoin with Mobile Credit. Now, we are pleased to say that CoinGate is relaunching the feature once again! Moreover, we are planning to extend this feature to buying Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and other cryptocurrencies.
Our team was happy to receive many positive reviews on our Buying Bitcoin with Mobile Credit feature. Therefore, we took some time to ensure higher security and a smoother payment flow for our customers. Now it is even more user-friendly and convenient. So starting from this week you are able to purchase Bitcoin by sending SMS or calling to premium number again!
This feature is perfect for those who are aiming to buy a small amount of Bitcoin; equal to more or less $50. At first, we are going to introduce buying Bitcoin with Mobile Credit in 19 countries: Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom. You will be able to buy cryptocurrency either by calling a premium number or sending a text message.
We have worked to make it much simpler and more intuitive for our users, and therefore have integrated the purchase process to our dashboard. Due to security reasons and some fraud attempts, however, using this feature requires our users to verify their accounts before purchasing Bitcoin. We hope this shall eliminate inconvenient situations both for us and for our customers. Also, we have set a monthly purchase limit of 250 euros (subject to change in the future). For larger purchases, we welcome customers to buy bitcoins with bank transfer or credit/debit card.
Another exciting upgrade to this service is coming quite soon. Bitcoin has gone up in price significantly, as you may all know. Yet, there is a number of other cryptocurrencies that are also increasing in their prominence. As such, buying Ether, Ripple, Litecoin with phone credit – and perhaps also other cryptocurrencies – will be possible in the coming months!
