About Us

We are a leading global player in mobile top up and gift card retail for crypto users, headquartered in Amsterdam.

Our Vision and Mission

We believe that within the next 10 to 15 years blockchain based currencies such as Bitcoin will become the main payment medium. These currencies provide solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems such as financial privacy, protection, freedom and inclusiveness.

With CryptoRefills we are on a mission to bring blockchain based payments into everyday life and accelerate mass adoption of cryptocurrency including Bitcoin and other digital currencies yet to come. We are here to do our part in building a financially inclusive, freer and fairer world, by focusing on the consumer side of bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

Our story

CryptoRefills was founded by Massi and Simonluca in 2018 with the idea of putting their combined 30 years of experience in digital payments technologies to develop the largest consumer-centric crypto shopping platform.

We started our adventure by enabling users to top up their mobile credit using Bitcoin. We then added gift cards starting from games and apps and progressively expanded our catalog to include the world’s largest online and offline retail brands. In the meantime, we also started accepting new coins, added new features to our platform, launched our mobile native apps, and closed some great commercial and marketing partnerships such as with Binance and Avalanche.

Today we operate at the frontier of the crypto sector, bringing the most interesting innovations in blockchain technology typically used in DeFi or Web 3, into real-world payment and commerce applications. Besides being among the earliest adopters of Lightning Network, we are the first company in the world to have launched stablecoin payments over Layer 2 Ethereum Networks (via Polygon) and scalability blockchains (via Avalanche) within an eCommerce service.

We are also actively engaged in consumer research of crypto payments via our CryptoRefills Labs initiative and are the publishers of the most detailed global report on consumer adoption of cryptocurrency in retail. You can read more on  labs.cryptorefills.com
