How to use Bitcoin to book your Airbnb for Bitcoin 2019

May 7, 2019

Looking for a place to stay for our first annual Bitcoin conference in San Francisco on June 25-26?

For Bitcoin 2019, we had to make sure our attendees can use Bitcoin at every step along their way. That’s why we partnered with one of our sponsors, BitRefill.

Bitrefill provides Bitcoin users an easy way to load gift cards using bitcoin and enabled-lightning payments. We’ve put together a quick guide on how to purchase Airbnb gift cards using bitcoin.

How to purchase gift cards using bitcoin:

  1. Go to and click “Get Started”.

  1. Choose from one of the product categories, in our case we are going to click “travel” and then “AirBnB” on the next screen.

  1. You will then be prompted to choose the amount of USD you want to add to your gift card. Please note; you are able to make multiple purchases if the maximum amount does not cover your total estimated costs.

  1. Enter your email address for any support issues and click “continue”

  1. Choose Bitcoin (BTC) at the top of the screen, you may also use Lightning payment and save 2 percent.

  1. On the payment screen, you can either scan the QR code or enter the payment details manually. Please allow up to a couple minutes for the transaction to be confirmed. You should always send payments from a wallet that you control, never send money to a payment from an exchange or custodial service.

  1. After a successful purchase, you can login to your airbnb account and redeem the gift card here.

And there you have it! You should be all good to go for your trip and we look forward to seeing you at the event. Please reach out to us on twitter @bitcoin2019confernce for the latest news, speakers announcements, and happenings as we get closer and closer to the event.

See you there!
