Philippines Bitcoin adoption affirms Manila AIBC Summit location

Abra users can now buy bitcoin at all 7-Eleven stores in the Philippines

SiGMA Group has applauded Abra following the announcement of a new partnership with ECPay allowing more ways for Abra users in the Philippines to conveniently add money to their Abra wallet through any of ECPAY’s 6,000 retail outlets across the Philippines, including all 7-Eleven stores.

Eman Pulis, Founder & CEO, SiGMA Group

“The proliferation of bitcoin, crypto and blockchain enterprise in the Philippines reflects the reasons why SiGMA Group chose Manila for the region’s largest trade expo for the sector”, commented Eman Pulis, founder and CEO or SiGMA Group, who are hosting the Manila AIBC Summit 2020 expo for blockchain, iGaming and land-based gambling.

“While the entire region is experiencing hyper-movement in the emerging tech space, the Philippines is leading the way, and SiGMA Group aims to facilitate opportunities for new business in Asia from this emerging hub for blockchain innovation.” 

Abra’s new partnership with ECPay and 7-Eleven stores is one more step towards making cryptocurrency use and investing simple and accessible to everyone.  Now from any 7-Eleven store in the Philippines, anyone with an Abra wallet can convert cash to crypto in a few easy steps.

Users will locate a CLIQQ kiosk inside any 7-Eleven store in the Philippines, and add the amount to deposit directly to their Abra wallet. The minimum deposit is PHP500 with a maximum amount of PHP100,000.00 daily with a two percent transaction fee. The cash will be added to the Abra wallet as PHP within 1- 2 business days.

Bill Barhydt, CEO of ABRA, will be speaking at our upcoming summit about ‘How programmable money is set to drive the next wave of financial innovation in retail banking and beyond’.
