Bitphone launches first Bitcoin-friendly digital phone service

Bitphone has just launched a new service that allows Bitcoiners to make global calls using digital currency. The Bitcoin Payphone is now available in beta, but users can already register and try out the new service.

Bitphone is not hiding its main goal, as the company aims to compete with the digital communications giant Skype by allowing its users to use the service in a computer or laptop, besides offering a traditional phone-based service.

The Bitcoin Payphone is available in 200 countries and the company promises great audio quality when using the crypto-friendly phone service.

To be one of the first users of the Bitcoin Payphone, all you need to do is register and then deposit some BTC or other type of digital currency in your account.

The cost to use Bitphone’s service is quite reduced. The price of a five-minute call between the United Kingdom and Singapore, for instance, was 0.369950 mBTC (or £0.07 GBP) at the time of writing. The company then charges a connection fee of 0.1 mBTC per call.

Sounds like a small price to pay for a high quality and secure phone conversation when compared to traditional phone services provided by big companies and paid for with fiat currency.
