In other news, CoinFlip will now offer a bitcoin-enabled gift card marketplace, according to a report by Bitcoin Magazine. The marketplace came about through a partnership with eGifter and will allow for the sale of gift cards in exchange for bitcoin. That will allow more underbanked residents to invest in bitcoin through CoinFlip and also exchange the cryptocurrency for goods and services. The ultimate goal for bitcoin is to become a currency that can be used anywhere just like most mainstream currencies, such as cash or debit cards, CoinFlip reported, but the idea of using gift cards as a middleman between it and retailers is an important step.
