As reported by Bloomberg, Coinbase said: “Whether it’s converting Bitcoin into Uber credits or Ethereum into an ASOS e-gift card, customers will have greater flexibility and control over how they use their crypto.”
“With the launch of e-gift cards, customers have a new option to spend their crypto balances, realizing its value to buy tangible things or experiences”.
WeGift offers its customers to choose from a host of retailers like Uber, Nike, Decathalon, New Look, Costa, etc. So, it is highly possible that after the collaboration, Coinbase customers might be able to avail these leading brands also.
