- BitRefill has announced that Airbnb bookings can now be made using cryptocurrency
- Netflix subscriptions can also be renewed with various tokens
With all the talk of institutional investment in crypto and all the amazing products that are coming out, cryptocurrency is, at its core, a medium of exchange and every now and then, more avenues are being created for crypto to be used for everyday purchases.
Only a few weeks ago, Travala partnered with TRON to allow the booking of hotel suites with TRX tokens. BitRefill has also announced On March 27, 2019, that they will now facilitate the renting of Airbnb’s with cryptocurrency.

Movie and TV lovers are getting the same treatment as BitRefill revealed on March 22, 2019, a few days prior, that their customers could renew their Netflix subscriptions with crypto.
Netflix and Crypto
Netflix is, by far, one of the most popular streaming services in the world today with a customer base in the millions. This new development is a huge stride for crypto adoption, which is being pushed more than ever.
To renew their subscription, users will need to visit the BitRefill site and then proceed to the gift card section, where they can purchase Netflix subscriptions using either USD and EUR.
The current payment denominations are $25, $30, and $50 for USD, and EUR denominations of €15, €25, and €50. After a denomination is chosen, the cryptocurrency to be paid with is also chosen. The amount of the order is sent to the QR provided form the wallet and then a digital code is generated, confirming the order.
Once the digital code is generated, it may then be added to the users Netflix account and their subscription may be renewed.
BitRefill has announced two new developments within days of each other which is sure to make their customers happy. More importantly, they are expanding the scope of what crypto can and cannot purchase and this shows no signs of stopping. Admittedly, there is still a good way to go before crypto is as readily acceptable as fiat currency is in the free market.
But, between this and bitcoin being sold by newsagents, adoption is surely on its way and in the future, almost anything will be purchased with crypto.
