Rebit.PH Going Strong

Recently, Rebit.PH – a Bitcoin remittance startup based here in the Philippines partnered with some notable companies around the globe. Rebit.PH is slowly growing, branching out not only to provide domestic or say, local remittances, but is easing the processes of Bitcoin remittance from overseas through the help of key partners across the globe.

One of those partners we mentioned above, is the alt-coin to Bitcoin hero,, as Satoshi Citadel Industries (Rebit.PH’s mother company) announced last September 29, 2015. is a means of instant and automatic alternative cryptocurrency exchange to Bitcoin, which can be used with custom payment gateways to allow the merchant to receive Bitcoins after the exchange. This would allow more ways to send money around the Philippines or from abroad, as some people would branch out to alt-coins for their added functionality, but would prefer Bitcoins as a means of payment because of its relative stability compared to these alt-coins.

Another would be ZipZap, a global money transfer application based in California. It wouldn’t exactly be based on Bitcoin, but through ZipZap, Rebit allows more ways of remittance from overseas (in the United States of America). This would be extremely beneficial for many Filipinos, especially for the large bulk of Oversees Filipino Workers living in the USA.

More news from Rebit and SCI are to come. As one of the most innovative and steady-growing startups centered on Bitcoin here in the Philippines, we have a whole lot more to see in the future.

Early August, a young emerging hack-a-thon called “The Search for the 2015 GreenOvators” started the search for ideas with the potential to make a revolution in the greening of MSMEs (Micro Small Medium Enterprises). The workshop and hack-a-thon’s first round out of three was last Saturday, August 29 2015.

The Search for the 2015 Greenovators Participants


The event was held in the Philippine Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ social hall from around 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM. Many great and green ideas were presented to hopefully raise awareness or form a habit for the sake of the country’s future. Some familiar faces were present in the GreenOvators hack-a-thon —‘s CEO Lyle Jover, a judge in the pitching battleground, and‘s Pinky Natividad, a mentor for these aspiring green-trepreneurs. These teams went through a 5 hour long roast to make the best Business Model — the biggest criterion for the round.



Some of these teams, namely JuanBill and ShakeStop, considered integrating

JuanBill’s Jeremy Lloyd De Jesus

Bitcoins into their work, by either accepting them for sales for ShakeStop, or somehow centered the application’s usage around the crypto-currency. Will the usage of Bitcoin be an edge for these teams, or will it just be another turn-off for the GreenOvator judges?

Recently, the Philippine government stated that Balikbayan Boxes are now subject to inspections under the Bureau of Customs (BOC). The contents of these boxes were previously un-taxed and since it contained gifts from Overseas Filipino Workers to their loved ones in the Philippines. Now that the boxes are subject to inspection due to recent smuggling issues regarding these boxes, what exactly would that mean for our OFWs?

Most Filipinos, both in the mainland and OFWs are against this law, since these boxes are not only boxes full of stuff, but are fruits of hard work and labor apart from family, and are material proof of the memory of their loved one(s) abroad. However, some people abuse this privilege granted to the Filipinos by shipping off high-end and illegal commodities through these giant gift boxes.

Most would stuff these commodities deep down the box, and around it, place small items legal to be transported to the Philippines and sent through forwarding businesses like Manila Forwarder. This would be done to escape taxes from the BOC, but is the very reason this law was passed. The Philippine Bureau of Customs have come across a number of cases wherein these “Balikbayan Boxes” contain smuggled appliances and many different goods illegally transported to citizens of the Philippines. An estimated 50 Million Pesos is lost because of this every year. Though the inspections seem very intrusive, the concept of the Balikbayan Box will still be observed by the BOC, as they will only inspect the Balikbayan Boxes which are not accompanied by an actual OFW coming home from overseas, thus the name “Balik-Bayan” which means “Coming Home” in Filipino.

Because of these privacy issues, Bitcoin may be used to instead send money directly through wallets, or due to Bitcoin’s volatility, through local remittance services like Rebit to allow loved ones and/or friends to purchase their needed commodities directly rather than to have it shipped from abroad, take weeks to arrive, torn open and possibly confiscated by the BOC instead.

Earlier this week, NewsBTC Philippines interviewed Katalyst’s Joe Maristela.
An angel investor in FinTech and Bitcoin related ventures.


NEWSBTC Philippines: What drove each of you to start

It was a series of independent deals earlier in 2015 that led to us getting organized and putting together a structure around us to help us act on more opportunities in a more efficient way. I was in the Business Process Outsourcing business and have been for the past 5 years, not unlike Paul Rivera of Kalibrr — who also came from the BPO Business. But my BPO business doesn’t take outside accounts. Two deals came from being in this industry though. One was an offshoot of deals with me and my dad in California were already doing as accredited angel investors — in healthcare start-ups. Another solved a problem that almost all BPOs have: b2b remittances, and that’s where bitcoin came in.
Same with Pinky Natividad, another member of the Katalyst team. We were working together on events, and marketing projects. she came from an accounting/numbers background. It was a perfect fit, we saw opportunities and we didn’t just want to invest for profits. We have international backgrounds and we knew and felt deeply about the Philippines’ financial situation. Our work needs to address this, so we’re a practical business we do acknowledge the requirement of profits, but at the same time, we know that if that’s all we focus on: we’ll end up with the status quo: big banks that don’t care about the unbanked — otherwise they would’ve found a way to get them to get bank accounts, get credit, etc. (instead of loansharking—sorry to say), and we’d end up with an economy that was still mainly/mostly based on labor. which is what the Philippine economy’s essentially been based on. Labor. Not ideas. Labor. Not creativity or inventions. Just labor — with OFWs sending remittances to the PH, and manpower in manila to staff BPOs. That’s gotta change. So ‘’ is born of this ambition to be a catalyst for startups of change and progress, one of the first things that Pinky did as CEO of Katalyst was to quietly and slowly roll out a campaign called “forwardph” “ForwardPH”. You’ll see folks tagging “ForwardPH” with projects and initiatives that they might be working on at school. in their community. Doesn’t necessarily need to be a startup. Kind of like YouthHack—they try to get students to start thinking of entrepreneurship at an early age. and #ForwardPH — we’re trying to get founders to think about social impact at an early stage in their start-up.

In SF, a company called Salesforce is run/owned by Benioff, a partner with my family in healthcare. He’s donated clinical spaces, hospitals, etc. He requires of their applicants new hires and current employees to dedicate at least one day a week to community service because there’s an extreme income equality in San Francisco, actually it’s pretty disheartening to see actually. if you’ve got a heart, you’d feel pretty guilty. two blocks from Twitter HQ, there are drug addicts on the street just passed out on the curb. Benioff is an example of something aims to inspire and instill in founders in the PH. We already know all too well that greed’s overcome the PH for so long — and corruption … so it’s justified, to be wary of it, maybe even paranoid of greed, especially when there’re valuations such as GrabTaxi’s floating around

NEWSBTC Philippines: As a venture capital, what do you look for in start-ups before funding the team?

We obviously compartmentalize while trying to stay sympathetic and empathetic –need to keep an open mind as much as we can otherwise we might miss out on a great deal, but basically, hastily, we can throw pitches into a few bins. One bin is pure concept, no proof of concept, hardly any hardware or anything material to speak of. We’ve entertained pitches for apps without even a UI sketched up. kind of ridiculous, but again, we need to keep an open mind. Another in that early stage (pre-seed stage), is the proof of concept bin. They’ve got something that barely works, but they haven’t yet tested it in any kind of market. That’s all pre-seed money. If we were to invest in anything at those stages, we’d basically be acknowledging that we’re only investing in an idea and words from the person. We look to classify and categorize. The broader categories of course are pre-seed, seed, and marketing (pre-series A). We figure out where they are then there are two other bins that we use — super gross and general areas there. Either this thing is gonna monetize its way to revenues (which means that it’s gonna need a billion users) or it’s gonna be a premium service … if it’s a premium service, it’d better have a rich market … enterprise … and they’ve gotta have an account executive to be able to deal with managing enterprise accounts. Consumers facing premium service… those are almost always going to be more of the ‘monetize a billion users’ type of thing, ’cause either you price out your growth or you don’t have an efficient enough tech/platform/business model to bring prices down enough for there to be that growth. It’s all just a bunch of levers and switches that you have to adjust to see where/how the startup stacks up. During YouthHack Manila, we covered the idea of an addressable market and an obtainable market. The convention workshop folks mentioned to the YouthHack class is usually 1% at most. If you go to Y Combinator for example, and you pitch to them, and you say your addressable market is the $20b market of remittances flowing to the Philippines. IF they agree with you on that (huge “if” there), they’ll only ever assume as much as 1%, and that’s your max potential. As an investor that’s just a #defensemechanism.


NewsBTC Philippines: What can we expect from in the future?

Katalyst is basically doing a deal a month. Our evaluation team has a huge pool of startups but honestly most of them are very very rough. Katalyst was on ANC the other day,. if you can find the vid, we’re there and we talk about how the Philippines will invariably yield its first billion dollar startup … invariably #unicorn. For all the same reasons that the BPO industry’s done so well here — cultural compatibility; work ethic; demographics of our working population — the startup scene out here will do better.

NewsBTC Philippines: Alright, here’s our last question. What is Katalyst’s direct connection with Bitcoin?

Well’s angel investor Joe Maristela is leading’s seed round, and they’re continuing to evaluate FinTech businesses, because of what we mentioned… big banks — they’ve been there so long. Status quo right, nothing’s going to change. Not any time soon anyway, so investment in new FinTech companies is the only way. Something like Biggest remittance service based on bitcoin in the world. They do $20m/year in remittances, and they’re a just a year old. SCI.PH owns that. Its growth is crazy, and that’s just remittances.


The Bitcoin Organization Philippines or BOP is a nonprofit organization, and a community of Filipino Bitcoin enthusiasts, where each can share ideas, speculate and organize meetings/meet-ups with fellow Bitcoiners. July 25, 2015 – Saturday, the organization had a meet-up, and hosted a booth at YouthHack Manila 2015’s Startup Fair.


Miguel and students at the BOP Booth

Several members of the Bitcoin Organization Philippines were present during YouthHack Manila 2015, as they managed the organization’s booth. Miguel Antonio Cuneta and his colleagues helped informing students, future tech entrepreneurs rather, about Bitcoin.


Katalyst.PH @ YouthHack Manila, a venture fund and member of the Bitcoin Organization Philippines was a major sponsor of the event. Katalyst also hosted a start-up workshop/presentation for the YouthHack Startup Challenge 2015: “Developing and Marketing the Next Unicorn Product” to educate and inform aspiring entrepreneurs about the key to success. The venture’s big name throughout YouthHack and its connections to Bitcoin therefore piqued several young entrepreneurs’s curiosity towards Bitcoin, while visiting the Bitcoin Organization Philippines’ booth.

We may be seeing more of Katalyst and the Bitcoin Organization Philippines in
more hackathons, financial workshops and tech conventions in the Philippines in the future as both slowly extend their reach throughout the country.


NewsBTC Philippines has scheduled an interview with Katalyst.PH, and we may be hearing more of their plans early this week. Stay tuned for more corporate Bitcoin news in the Philippines.


So, you’re from the Philippines and you want to get into bitcoin? This guide is designed to help you get started and give you a kick start ahead into the bitcoin community. This article isn’t strictly for Filipino newcomers, but a lot of the tips here will refer to bitcoin services that are available or supported in the Philippines.


The first thing you want to do is to get yourself a wallet. Your wallet is basically your account in the bitcoin community, and you’re going to need it if you’re going to get into cryptocurrency. A bitcoin wallet holds your private keys that you need to spend or use your bitcoins. Once you obtain one, you’ll be given a bitcoin address, a “username” you’ll be using and giving to others so that they can interact with your wallet, allowing them to send you bitcoin in return.

There are many ways to get yourself a wallet. For a beginner, I highly recommend Blockchain, GreenAddress and Coinbase. These are web wallets, which means that you’ll need an internet browser to go to the corresponding wallet provider’s website to access it. All of them have mobile apps as well, so you can send and receive funds on the go.

Getting a web wallet is as simple as signing up in the provider’s website and that’s it – you have a bitcoin wallet.

Once you’re done with that, get used to the interface, read up a couple guides, get yourself a few satoshis at a faucet or two, and when you’re finished twiddling your thumbs and you’re finally ready to step up, move on.


So now you have a wallet. Now what? You don’t really think you can get yourself your first millibit by gambling all day at Primedice or hanging out at the faucet 24/7, do you? Now what you’re going to want to do is to get into the bitcoin community. Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network, so you’re not exactly going anywhere without peers.

Why not sign yourself up at the forums, get yourself a job at /r/Jobs4Bitcoins on Reddit or chat up someone you know who’s already into bitcoin? Look up Philippine bitcoin communities on Facebook or Twitter, or even get yourself into a group or two. There’s the Bitcoin PH and Bitcoin Organization of the Philippines groups as well, so if you already have a Facebook, you can get yourself into those.

Just introduce yourself and talk to people. You’re not going anywhere without completing this step, but it’s not at all that hard. The Bitcoin community is huge, and you don’t have to lock yourself into one group. Get your friends to join and team up, and maybe, just maybe, you’d find yourself signing up for a job.


Okay, this part can be a little challenging. You might say, “I don’t even make a single cent in real life and you expect me to get employed that fast just by meeting random strangers on the internet?!”, and to that I respond: Well, no. Meeting people you can get to know on the internet is as easy as getting into a bitcoin-themed chatbox and the occasional cryptocurrency chat roulette, and getting yourself a job on the internet and getting paid for it sounds a little suspicious and a little bit of a scam, after all, isn’t that everybody’s dream?

So let’s just set it straight, you’re not going to be making any notable income if you have absolutely nothing to offer, but isn’t that kind of why you’re looking for a job? Because you know you can do something and want to get paid for it? What are you already great at? If you’re already great at writing code, composing music or drawing artworks then chances are you have already have a good chance at getting yourself a job. Go ahead and sign up a bitcoin job finder or try it’s sub-reddit at /r/Jobs4Bitcoins.


Next time, we’ll talk about using the money you’ve earned, and what services you can use to spend the precious bitcoins you’ll be saving up. We’ll be talking about currency exchanges, remittances and some services you may need to understand to get further with bitcoin.

This guide may have been a little harsh, and not exactly welcoming, and that’s not the vibe I wanted to give off when writing this guide. The truth is, the bitcoin community isn’t all that hard to get into, but the thing is, you have to learn to make an effort. There’s no real magic trick that will get yourself those bitcoins, there’s no special formula or ten steps to follow to suddenly have wads of cash. It’s all just hard work, but in the end, it’s surely paid off.

If you’ve lived under a rock for the past few years, you probably still don’t even know what Bitcoin is. To give you a quick rundown, Bitcoin is a decentralized peer-to-peer digital currency.

You’d probably think, “a what now?” Bitcoins are the currency of the internet, and is slowly being accepted as an alternative payment method due to its customer friendly transactions and ease of use, which is as easy as registering for a wallet, and boom! You have an digital bank account, as simple as that.

If you’re still tilting your head over what I just said, this video may be more enlightening:

Now you’re probably thinking, “Alright, so how can I even use this digital money here in the Philippines?”

A lot of retailers already accept Bitcoin as a payment method here in the Philippines. Discount sites like CashCashPinoy and MetroDeal already accept it, and it’s even safer, secure and faster than having to rummage around for a credit card, even escaping those pesky hidden fees made by banks.

Meanwhile, there are even certain branches of Manang’s Chicken that use it if you’re grabbing a bite to eat, or even certain traders who are willing to trade for Bitcoin. If you’re not willing to trade, there are even several Bitcoin ATMs and currency exchanges where you can buy Bitcoin or even sell them for several currencies, including Philippine peso or US dollar. This is especially useful if you need to send money, which is especially appealing if you know or are related to someone working overseas. Just go to the local exchange and have your money converted to Bitcoin and send it over, where your relative can convert it back to the local currency. It’s simple, faster, minimizes transaction fees and all you need is just a wallet.

Bitcoin here in the Philippines still has a long ways to go to become a viable main payment method, but it’s definitely wrong to say that it doesn’t have a presence here in the country. Nevertheless, it’s interesting to see what its entry would usher into the Philippine economy.

Kasalukuyang bumubuo ng bagong BTC wallet para sa mga Pilipino ang Satoshi Citadel Industries ( Ito ay pinagpasyahang tawaging Bitbit, na masasabing angkop na pangalan para sa binubuong app dahil sa ito’y magagamit upang dalhin ang mga Bitcoin sa iba’t-ibang lugar.

Ano ang Bitcoin Wallet?

Kung ang tradisyonal na salapi ay ihinuhulog sa banko o inilalagay sa mga pisikal na pitaka, ang Bitcoin naman at iba pang mga cryptocurrency ay inilalagay sa mga digital wallets. Isa itong programa sa kompyuter. Ang pinagkaiba nito sa normal na pitaka ay hindi ito kongkreto, kundi isang masasabing password sa Bitcoin balance ng isang tao. Kasalukuyang may apat na uri nito: para sa desktop (Armory, Electrum), mobile (Hive, Mycelium), web (Blockchain, Circle), at hardware o kongkreto (TREZOR, Ledger Nano). Ngayon ay hindi pa masyadong laganap ang paggamit ng hardware Bitcoin wallets sapagkat ito ay nasa mga maagang yugto pa lang ng pagbubuo.


Ang Bitbit ay ang bagong wallet na dinedevelop ng Satoshi Citadel Industries.

Gamit ang Bitbit, maaaring dalhin, tumanggap, at magpadala ng Bitcoins mula sa kahit anong bahagi ng mundo. Mula mismo sa kanilang website, sinasabi ng Satoshi Citadel na magagamit ang mga silbi ng Bitbit mula sa iba’t-ibang mga plataporma tulad ng e-mail, text, at social media.

Ngunit may katangian ang Bitbit na nagbubukod-tangi dito sa ibang mga serbisyong Bitcoin wallet. Sa Bitbit, hindi lamang Bitcoin ang nailalagay sa wallet kundi pati na rin ang katumbas ng Bitcoin credits sa piso. Nakatutulong ito dahil hindi na nakasalalay sa pabago-bagong exchange rate ng Bitcoin ang pera ng gumagamit. Kapag inilabas na raw ay maaaring magamit ang Bitbit sa mga Internet browser at sa cellphone.

Kilala ang Satoshi Citadel Industries bilang isa sa mga pinakamalaking Bitcoin start-up na kompanya sa Pilipinas. Ilan pa sa kanilang ibang mga produkto ay ang Rebit (isang paraan upang magpadala ng pera sa Pilipinas na walang dagdag na gastusin), (isang payment processor), at

Simula sa pagkalikha ng Bitcoin noong 2008, nakilala na ito bilang isang rebolusyonaryong paraan ng paggamit ng pera. Ginawa nitong mas madali ang pagtanggap at pagbigay ng pera sa Internet. Nang dumami ang mga nagkaroon ng interes sa Bitcoin ay pinag-aralan na ng iba’t-ibang mga tao kung paano pinapatakbo nang desentralisado ang isang cryptocurrency. Nagkaroon rin ng mga bagong start-up na kompanya, na pinagtutuunan ng pansin ang iba’t-ibang aspeto ng buhay, at paano maipapasok ang paggamit ng Bitcoin, ng blockchain, at ng iba’t iba pang mga teknolohiyang pampinansyal dito. Ngunit, sa dinami-rami ng mga kompanyang nagsimula dahil sa seguridad, pagbabangko, at iba pang mga kalakalan, ngayon pa lang nagkaroon ng mga programang ginagamit ang bitcoin para sa pagkakawang-gawa.

Isa na rito ang Evolvig, isang app na ginagawa ng developer na si Larry Scott. Nanggaling ang pangalan nito sa mga salitang Ingles na Give Love, isang paraan ng pagpapahiwatig ng gamit ng app na ginawa nila.

Sinusubukang gawin ng Evolvig na mas madali ang pagbibigay ng tulong sa mga pundasyon at institusyon gamit ang Bitcoin o ang kanilang sariling in-app altcoin. Sa pagsali sa Evolvig, nakakatanggap ng mga pagsubok ang mga gumagamit nito sa anyo ng mga mensahe. Nakalagay sa mga nilalaman nito ang mga kailangang gawin ng gumagamit ng app. Kadalasan ay kailangan itong makuhanan ng litrato o video. Nakakatanggap ng Bitcoin ang gumagamit matapos nilang gawin ang inilaang pagsubok.

Nagbibigay ng paraang makapagkawanggawa ang mga Bitcoin users gamit ang Evolvig.
Nagbibigay ng paraang makapagkawanggawa ang mga Bitcoin users gamit ang Evolvig.

Ang mga pagsubok na ito ay galing rin sa mga ibang gumagamit, at sila rin ang nagbibigay ng insentibo sa mga tumutupad dito. Sa pagkita ng Bitcoin ng gumagamit ay pwede nilang ibigay na ito sa kanilang mga napiling tulungan na institusyon o di kaya’y magpalabas na rin ng kanilang sariling pagsubok.

Tulad ng ibang mga kumpanyang nakabase sa kalakalang Bitcoin, layunin rin ng Evolvig na gawing mas ligtas at mas mabilis ang pagpapadala ng pera. Noon ay sa mundong pangkalakalan lang ginagamit at nakikilala ang Bitcoin. Ngayon, nagsisimula na itong pumasok sa ating pangaraw-araw na buhay, hanggang sa pagkakawang-gawa.

Pagdating sa social networking, palaging nangunguna ang Pilipino. Mula sa simula ng SMS, hanggang dumating ang mga pinakasikat noong social network na Friendster at Myspace. Hanggang ngayon, hindi pa rin kumukupas ang pag-ibig sa pagitan ng Pilipinas at social networks; kinikilala ang bansa bilang ika-8 pinakamaraming gumagamit ng Facebook sa buong mundo. Hindi rin nawawalan ng pagpipilian ang mga Pilipinong gumagamit ng messaging apps, dahil maraming makikitang iba’t-ibang mga pangalan sa Play Store at sa iOS App Store. Iilan lamang dito ang WhatsApp, WeChat, Viber, LINE, at iba pa.

Sa dinami-rami ng mga gumagamit ng mga ito ay hindi na nakakagulat kapag nalaman natin na kumikita ng napakalaking halaga ang mga aplikasyong ito para sa kanilang mga developers. Dumoble ang kita ng LINE noong ikatlong quarter ng 2014, kapag ikinumpara sa kinita nila mula sa 2013. Ang WhatsApp naman ay kumita ng humigit kumulang $20m noong 2011-2012.

Dahil dito ay nakuha ng social networking ang atensyon ni Daniel Peled, kasama ang kanyang kupunan ng mga developers. Ninais nilang gumawa ng paraan upang gawing para sa masa muli ang social networking, tulad ng nangyari sa salapi matapos maipakilala ang Bitcoin sa mundo. Matapos ang kanilang pinaghirapang trabaho, nailabas nila ang GetGems.

Gumagamit ang GetGems ng isang sistemang pinapatakbo ng mga Gems. Ito ay mga puntos na nakukuha ng mga gumagamit ng app sa iba’t ibang paraan. Ang pinakauna rito ay ang pag-refer. Kumikita ng Gems ang mga user na nagdadala ng mga bagong miyembro sa komunidad. May mga airdrop ring tinatawag: ito ay ang pamimigay ng mga Gems sa bawat user. Nakasalalay sa dami ng referrals ang halaga ng Gems na ibibigay sa isang user. Ang mga walang referrals naman ay ibinibigay sa mga namiling Presalers. Ang halaga ng Gems na nakukuha nila ay mas marami pa, dahil dumodoble ito base sa halaga ng Gems na nasa Wallet ng gumagamit.

Ang mga Gems na ito ay isang alternatibo sa Bitcoin, na kilala bilang mas ligtas na paraan ng pagpapadala ng pera sa Internet. Bilang sa gayon, mas madali nang mamili sa tindahan sa Internet na tumatanggap ng mga cryptocurrency. Sa paraang ito ay nababawasan ang posibilidad na madawit sa mga scam, at paunti-unting naibabalik sa tuktok ng kahalagahan ang mga gumagamit, imbis na ang mga kumpanya.
