Airbitz Integrates Fold App, Enabling Bitcoin Payments At Starbucks & Target

airbitz-logoAirbitz, the mobile bitcoin wallet, has integrated Fold, the Starbucks gift card app that accepts bitcoin payments, into its own app. In announcing the Fold offering, Airbitz said it will be helpful for people new to bitcoin and will encourage more consumers to start using bitcoin. The Fold app also allows users to receive discounts at Target and Whole Foods Market.

Many bitcoin users already take advantage of the discounts Fold provides for Starbucks gift cards; users get a 20% discount paying with bitcoin.

Airbitz Streamlines The Fold Process

Airbitz has further streamlined the process for using Fold, even though the process is fairly simple to begin with, Airbitz noted in a blog post. By using Airbitz’s buy-and-sell feature, users can link the service to their bank account and buy gift cards directly.

In addition to these discounts, the Airbitz app also allows customers to buy and sell bitcoin through Glidera, another bitcoin wallet.

To launch the Fold integration, Airbitz has developed Starbucks-inspired aprons, according to International Business Times. In addition, more than 100,000 flyers will be distributed outside coffee shops in the next few weeks.
