May 11, 2020 Updated

GCash can be used to purchase bitcoins using this procedure involving Coins.ph.

The BSP regulated mobile money service, GCash, allows users to buy load, pay bills, send and receive money, and purchase items. Did you know that you can register your number even if you’re not a Globe or TM subscriber? You can also purchase bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies using GCash, and here’s how.

Update: Because of Globe and Coins.ph participation in the government’s PESONet and InstaPay initiative, transferring between Coins.ph and GCash has become more efficient than ever. At the moment the transfer is handled by DragonPay but transfer from Coins to GCash is through InstaPay.

Update: Because of PESONet and InstaPay, users of PDAX can also cash in using GCash.

This mobile money service initially made for Globe and TM subscribers is now available to all networks. Users can now easily download the app on the Play Store or App Store and register using their number. With its wider reach, you can also use GCash to buy bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.
