Since the launch of bitcoin in 2009 people have been wondering what can be purchased with cryptocurrency. As society has slowly started to catch up, the list continues to grow. From cars to lottery tickets to jewelry, merchants everywhere are accepting bitcoin and other forms of cryptocurrency. It's even possible to buy airline tickets with cryptocurrency.

Now, with the Wificoin app, it's possible to connect to inflight wifi using cryptocurrency, for the first time ever. So if you find yourself stuck on a plane with some extra coins in your wallet, you can purchase inflight wifi to start gaming, or cruising Instagram by paying with cryptocurrency.

The Wificoin App:

Wificoin is a pay-as-you-go inflight wifi app that allows travelers to access inflight wifi on 37 airlines. Anyone can download wificoin before they fly, purchase credits, and then use those credits to connect to inflight wifi on their flight as long as the airline and aircraft are supported. It currently does not have desktop access but will be releasing this feature soon.

Furthermore, credits can be used to connect to 68M wifi hotspots around the world in 180 countries.
