Cake Wallet to launch gift card marketplace within next month

Cake Wallet1 is looking to launch a gift card marketplace within the next month, according to Justin Ehrenhofer2’s MoneroKon223 virtual presentation video4:

[..] I wanna announce two things of many that we are working on with Cake Wallet [..] a gift card marketplace, which is available for XMR, BTC and LTC, and an Exchange Auto Router (1:55)

The marketplace will start with select US merchants, most of the gift cards will have a discount averaging around 2% and there are no plans to charge a convenience fee, according to Cake Labs5.

Note that users will need to provide an email address for gift card confirmation forwarding.

This is an ongoing story and the report will be updated when new information is available.

Update: marketplace launched6.
