About the Company

We believe blockchain based digital currencies have the potential to solve some of the world’s most important problems such as financial inclusion, protection, privacy and freedom. With Cryptorefills we are on a mission to bring blockchain based payments into everyday life and accelerate mass adoption of cryptocurrency (bitcoin or other digital currency yet to come).

Access to crypto investments, trading and person-to-person transactions, is relatively easy today. However, this only serves a limited scope of needs for these currencies. Using cryptocurrencies in everyday life, such as for buying goods and services is instead very limited.

Cryptorefills is a website and Android app offering users in over 235 countries and territories the possibility to use their bitcoin and crypto to make everyday purchases. With Cryptorefills, users spend different cryptocurrencies to top up their phone credit across 600 Mobile Operators, pay their utility bills, subscribe to their favorite entertainment services (Netflix, Spotify, Google Play, iTunes), purchase from top e-commerce brands (Amazon, Bol) shop at retail stores (Walmart) and even travel, buy fuel and pay restaurant bills.

The Company is a fast growing fintech, headquartered in Amsterdam, with a local presence in Milano and Izmir.
