Sats2Data is a platform that allows you to use bitcoin to purchase airtime or data bundles in Africa. Because the platform supports the Lightning Network, transactions take less than a minute.

By allowing individuals in Africa to use their bitcoin to purchase daily necessities like airtime or data bundles, the platform helps promote the adoption of bitcoin as a means of payment and increase its utility in the region.

How to Use Sats2Data

Using the platform is quite easy. The following are the steps to follow to make a complete top-up:

  • Choose either Airtime or Data
  • Select your country
  • Enter your mobile number
  • Enter your preferred amount/select from the list of amounts
  • Scan the barcode that comes up OR copy the LNURL and paste it into your bitcoin wallet. Any bitcoin wallet capable of sending and receiving bitcoin can be used on the platform. If you don’t have a bitcoin wallet, there’s a link to get Alby wallet for desktop.

Sats2Data isn’t yet officially launched, as it is still in the MVP stage.

Some network operators are not supported in the countries where they operate. For example, Zamtel is not supported in Zambia. Sometimes it may take up to an hour for the top-up to reflect. If you need to top up your phone urgently, you can use Bitrefill.
