Generally the BitSika app is a crypto currency platform or app that promises to offer one of the most convenient ways for people to send money, receive money and spend money online through the provision of virtual Visa cards.

My honest reaction? I felt that is an innovative idea and the app deserved a thumbs up for that.
This is mostly because in Ghana when you make mention of online payments the most popular answer would be “momo”.
“Momo” stands for mobile money and and it mostly requires a person to send money to another person momo account mostly by having their phone number.
There have been several instances of people send money to wrong numbers and people being scammed to return money that was accidentally sent to them.
But that is a different story for another day.

BitSika virtual cards
The bitsika virtual card or a vitrual debit card to me is the juiciest part of the app.
As started earlier I was intrigued by the idea and I really felt it was the coolest feature about the app.
To be honest, there are quite a number of apps that offer a similar service to what Bitsika offers but not all of them include the virtual debit card generating feature.
To generate your virtual debit card you will only have to tap on the cards option, input your details and your virtual card will be ready to use.
The only catch here is that users must have a minimum of $5 balance for this to work.
I would highly recommend this app because of its easy to use user interface.
When I first heard of this app I honestly thought it was probably a new crypto currency or a crypto currency wallet. Mainly because of its name “bit” sika
But the app however has just a little relation with crypto currency just because sets can top up or cash out into a crypto currency wallet.
