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.

Some people think a digital currency would usually mean something like gold pieces from a video game or credit for online shopping, and while that would be true, the same just can’t be said for Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency has grown so much since its birth in 2009, and before its peak back when $25 worth of pizza were bought with 10,000 BTC. Sure, the exchange rate is just a meager fourth of what it was back then in 2012, and whether or not we see Bitcoin restored back to its so called “glory days” with soaring conversion rates, but it’s undeniable that this digital currency has been, is and will continue to be a big deal. Here in the Philippines, Bitcoin is still growing, but we’re getting there, nonetheless, as paying your bills has become easier with bitcoin.

That’s right. No more going to the local Bayad Center or your nearby Meralco branch just to pay your electric bill. allows you to get that over with real quick.

And not just that. Need to pay the Maynilad water bill? Credit card expenses due? Cignal needs a boost? Out of load? Need to pay your tuition for this semester?

Just by going to, go to Bill Payments, fill in your credentials and hit pay bill. Do note however, its better to pay way before the deadline. Just like that and you won’t have to whine about having to walk out when its that time of the month and the deadline’s up.

When you’re asked to go to the mall to pay your bills or make a roundtrip across the entire city to pay for electricity, water and school, why not just boot up your laptop and pay from there? So make sure to check out next time that happens.

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.
