Trading Giftcards for Bitcoin
How do I get paid?
After successful validation of your Giftcards the trade value is added to the customerJeroid’s (sic) wallet.
We were asked to register an account and had to input details such as name, phone number, and confirm our email addresses via an OTP. We were also asked to set a PIN for the account and add a bank account.
Please add your Nigerian Bank Account to receive funds from your transactions.
When selling Bitcoin, we are presented with a dropdown menu with 4 options:
- Bitcoin ATM
The app seems to facilitate the trading of gift cards, represented in Naira. However, funds will be withdrawn to the user’s bank account in fiat. This app is not meant to hold your bitcoins.
The product can't send or receive BTC.
As part of our Methodology, we ask:Can it send and receive bitcoins? If not, we tag it No send/receive
If it is for holding BTC but you can’t actually send or receive them with this product then it doesn’t function like a wallet for BTC but you might still be using it to hold your bitcoins with the intention to convert back to fiat when you “cash out”.
All products in this category are custodial and thus funds are at the mercy of the provider.
