Philippines Crypto News

Coins.ph is the Philippines most prominent local gateway to buying bitcoin. Although a bit higher than regular exchanges, the tradeoff is I can load my Coins.ph wallet by converting my fiat via 711 stores and buy bitcoin from coins.ph using their mobile app.

Recently featured in Nikki Asian Review and seems like other coins will be added soon according to their Twitter handle below.

I asked their Twitter account when other coins will be available and they replied “Soon”. Cryptocurrency is slowly going mainstream here in the Philippines!

Any Pinoy familiar with Loyal Coin, part of Appsolutely? Bought into the ICO on the NEM platform. Seems very promising.

Philippines trying to catch up in the crypto game!

Looks like more exchanges are coming its way to the Philippines with new regulations. Still a positive vibe for Crypto Currency.

I agree. I think Loyal Coin is promising. It’s certainly good for consumers, the real question is if they can get wide spread adoption by merchants. While many countries have accepted coalition programs, the U.S. has traditionally resisted them. A popular coffee shop recently announced they were considering accepting crypto currencies. That same coffee shop is a current customer of Appsolutely (at least in the Philippines). Seems like Loyal Coin could be a great fit or addition to an existing coffee rewards app. IMO - Loyal Coin checks all the boxes and has great potential. The ICO is near max, so not much time remaining.

Hi Tracker,

Is it available in your app? I had asked coins.ph when was the full roll out of the eth wallet… But there wasn’t a definite answer. The eth wallet is limited to a few beta users as of the moment.


#14

I just clicked on update in google play. There will be a prompt explaining how the eth wallet works. If you skip it just scroll to the left and it should be there.

Not sure of it being beta because there is nothing on the app that says its beta.

The web version is not yet synced to the new mobile wallet so you wouldnt see it if you use the web app.
