Bitwala, the service that lets EU citizens pay their bills in bitcoin — as well as offering a bitcoin debit card — has recently announced its new Bitwala Bitcoin Wallet service. This new wallet integrates both of their existing services into the same platform, reportedly making the whole process of paying bills and topping up a debit card with bitcoin a lot smoother and easier.
Bitwala: Pay Everyday Bills with Bitcoin
Bitwala is a service that lets its users pay everyday bills in bitcoin, including but not limited to utility bills, phone bills, and mortgage payments. The user sends the corresponding amount of bitcoin to Bitwala, and they will take care of the rest by paying the bill using its bank account. This service is currently limited to citizens living inside the European Union, as it uses SEPA bank transfers, a service only available to European banks. SEPA transfers have very low fees and they are relatively quicker than traditional bank transfers, reducing costs and increasing accessibility.
