Online gamblers in the United States are always looking for easy ways to purchase bitcoin with their credit cards. Circle was popular until they pivoted aways from bitcoin and Coinbase has already banned many customers who made the mistake of transferring their bitcoin from their Coinbase directly to a BTC sportsbook, poker room or casino without using an intermediate wallet. That's why we were happy to learn yesterday that Abra Global have integrated American Express into their wallet app to allow their customer to easily purchase bitcoin. If you download the Abra Global iOS or Android app you will be able to purchase $200 worth of BTC every day and up to $1,000 per month. That should be enough to satisfy most sports bettors and poker players in the United States who gamble recreationally. The only major downside is the 4% fee, which is higher than what you would expect to pay at many U.S. exchanges. This new integration doesn't just apply to American Express branded cards but also extends to prepaid cards like Bluebird and American Express Serve, which can be purchased at Walgreens, CVS or Walmart. IMPORTANT: Once you have purchased your bitcoin using the Abra app, you should not send it directly to your betting account as Abra will likely close your account. It is important that you send it to an intermediate gambling friendly wallet where you control your private keys. Examples of these type of wallets include BreadWallet (iOS) and Mycelium (Android).
