Buy airtime with your Bitcoin

We’ve started rolling out the latest feature to the Luno platform to our South African users last night: airtime.

With a few simple clicks, users can now top up their mobile phone airtime credit or buy data bundles from any of the South African mobile operators. These purchases can be paid for with either bitcoin or local currency.

Airtime will be extended to the Android and Apple mobile apps in the coming weeks, followed by rollouts in our other active countries.
