It gives us heartfelt joy to have the opportunity to make this historic announcement at El Salvador’s Adopting Bitcoin conference, as the Bitcoin community and El Salvador’s business and finance leaders meet to discuss the future of Bitcoin payments.

El Salvador is leading the way towards a circular Bitcoin economy, a world in which Bitcoins are not only traded on exchanges, but between people and businesses. Bitrefill envisions it to soon be as common for people to use their Bitcoin wallet as it is today to use videoconferencing.

A Salvadoran living abroad can use Cash app, or Strike + Bitrefill bill pay, and pay the electricity bill for a relative in El Salvador with Lightning Network, instantly and with sub-penny fees. This is huge, in a nation where remittances make up more than 20% of total GDP, and the sender traditionally cannot control where the receiver spends the money.
