Improved Loads & Refunds

It’s a great feeling to use Fold in line at Starbucks. You know that you’re getting a great deal, and you can explain to your friends / spouse / barista that you paid with bitcoin. It’s okay, you can be a little smug.

Sometimes, though, loading a barcode is delayed, or a refund from your last purchase takes a little too long. And it isn’t always clear whether you’ve logged in. No good.

We hear you! And we’ve made a few changes to speed things up. Today, when you load more bitcoin, instead of replacing the barcode—we’ll give you a new one.

You can keep different barcodes with different amounts.

And when you request a refund, only the barcode you’ve requested will be refunded. This has the benefit of being faster. It also increase the amount you can load on Fold—up to two $25 barcodes.

Behind the scenes, these changes also enable all sorts of third-party integrations. We’re looking forward to working with some of our favorite bitcoin companies.
