There is also a way you to check your Beep Balance. All you need to do is enable your NFC and tap your Beep card at the back of your phone until your balance appears.

Depending on your connection, it may take a couple of seconds.

Some of you may like the idea of paying for LRT or MRT fare with bitcoin.

However, Coins.ph has clarified that directly topping up your Beep Card with Coins.ph is not possible at the moment. If you really want to do this, first, convert your bitcoins into pesos within the Coins.ph app. Now that your bitcoins are converted to cash, you can finally load your Beep card.
