Amsterdam, November 16th, 2023 - Cryptorefills, the shopping platform that enables people all over the world to buy gift cards and pay with cryptocurrency, is excited to announce today the introduction of a new payment method for its users. Cryptorefills customers can now enjoy the benefits of paying with USDC, one of the leading stablecoins, over the innovative Solana network.
Solana is renowned for its high-speed blockchain, offering significantly faster transaction speeds compared to traditional networks.

Cryptorefills CEO, Massimiliano Silenzi, commented on the news: “This implementation comes at a great moment, right after the successful Solana Breakpoint event in Amsterdam and at a time in which the protocol is enjoying great recognition. We hope our customers and the members of the Solana community enjoy this new feature”.
