The New Trend Of Gifting Cryptocurrency

Want to give something unique to your loved ones this year? Look no further; now, you can gift cryptocurrency to your family and friends through an easy and smooth process.  

There are still a lot of controversies around crypto, but in reality, it has become relatively easy to buy crypto these days. And on top of that, if you are gifting it to someone, it has some significant upsides for you. Although crypto prices are not the most stable thing in the world, it is supposed to increase in coming years, and thus, it is gaining traction among online retailers. 

Now, there are many coins available in the market, so what you want to give depends on the level of familiarity of the gift receiver with cryptocurrency. Like if they are a novice, you would give them more mainstream crypto such as BTC or ETH to be on the safe side. 

If your recipient does not have a place to keep their new digital assets, you could get them a crypto wallet that stores the crypto and records transactions on a blockchain ledger. Wallets are classified into two types: cold wallets and hot wallets. Cold wallets store the private key offline using hardware such as a USB drive. Hot wallets store the private key, a string of numbers that serve as the wallet’s address online. (LCX is a well-known hot wallet.) 

Keep in mind that if you are giving away crypto as a gift, you should also be aware of its volatile nature and are ready to bear the potential decrease or increase in the future.

Gift cards

Several websites sell crypto gift cards today, but the giftee must have an account to receive the gifted crypto amount. Find one that appears credible, preferably with positive reviews, and provides what you want, then choose the amount you wish to gift and pay for it.

After you make the payment, you will receive a gift card for your deposited amount. The recipient can redeem the gift in the same way standard retailer gift cards work by entering the website and entering the information displayed on the card.

The Best Way Of Gifting Crypto To Someone

It is none other than NFTs, Non-fungible tokens, essentially works of digital art purchased with cryptocurrency and monitored using blockchain technology. You can browse the NFT marketplace using sites like OpenSea or other NFT marketplaces, and the simplest (and safest) way to buy NFTs is to use a wallet.

If you have a family member or friend engaged in NFTs, giving one as a gift for their birthday celebration, the holidays, or any other time of year could be a fun option. 

LCX’s Tiamond NFT can prove to be the perfect gift this year for the upcoming holiday season. Tiamonds are diamond NFTs that provide you with the ownership of real-world diamonds. And what better gift to give to your beloved than a diamond? 

Conclusion

Lastly, do not confine your gifts to traditional ones, like a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine. Be creative, gift crypto to your loved ones, and give them a chance to try this new financial asset. Maybe they will find interest after owning a small amount of it.
