Paxful, leading global peer-to-peer fintech platform, has launched its new Gift Card Hub, a one-stop shop for trading gift cards, just in time for the holiday season.

With this new feature, users can list gift cards for sale or buy discounted gift cards instantly with bitcoin.

Paxful allows users to sell their Bitcoin in exchange for gift cards from over 125 brands worldwide, often at a discount of up to 50%. Whether you’re looking to sell an unused gift card you received, or seeking to save on gifts for your loved ones, users can buy, sell, and trade instantly thanks to bitcoin’s universality, rapid transferability, and wide range of currency rates provided by traders on Paxful.

The Gift Card Hub on Paxful has made last minute holiday shopping even easier. Users can search for a specific gift card or browse Paxful’s full inventory, click on an offer with the self checkout offer tag, and buy it instantly. Often buyers can purchase gift cards at a discount, saving them money on gifts. For example, users might discover a vendor who is selling a gift card worth $100 in exchange for $70 worth of BTC. Through this specific transaction, buyers receive an instant savings of $30!
