It’s been a long time coming, well not that long really. But as we continue to grow with our new positioning in international money transfers, so has our development and design of our brand new, web and mobile responsive application. (Yes we are just as excited!)
When will it be launched?
We will be exhibiting our merchant and consumer beta application at SXSW in Austin, Texas March 13-18th. With a very special thanks to Infocomm Investments as selecting and sponsoring us as one of ten startups to exhibit at SXSW at the trade show with the Singapore government. Who will be there? CEO Anson Zeall, Crypto Journalist John Scianna, and Growth Marketer Kate Swanberg will be attempting to attend every networking event possible and live tweeting. Make sure to ping us on Twitter to meet up and get a special Frisbee. Hint: Carousell will be doing a special giveaway with gear for SXSW, including ours!
As we’ve received many comments, questions, and “when will you have my country!?”– type questions.
We are happy to announce that we will launch our user-friendly international payroll app in four countries. Businesses in Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and the USA, can start taking advantage and sending money to their remote workers, freelancers, and contractors, in Asia using this app quite easily.
What’s our magic? How do we get that cheap rate and fast transfer?
We leverage bitcoin to transfer money from one country to another at great ease where both the senders and receivers don’t even need to know about bitcoin.
“Bitcoin is moving on. The power is not just in the currency, but in the technology.” says Anson Zeall, Co-founder/CEO of CoinPip. “‘Painful’ is the only word described by remote workers regarding the process of receiving funds.’’
That’s something we can all agree on. The video below might give you a better explanation of how we do it. Wink wink.
Don’t see your country?
Don’t worry! We plan to expand to more countries, such as the UK, Kenya, Malaysia, Turkey, and the Philippines and add more deposit channels in the upcoming months. You can find our open beta at our homepage at www.coinpip.com come March 13th. Simultaneously with this launch, we will also be rolling out a payment service to and from China through a partnership with Melotic, a China-based bitcoin company. Both Melotic and ourselves are companies backed by 500 Startups. 500 Strong!!
For our merchants:
Also on March 13th expect to see a re-designed merchant platform for retail merchants that want to accept bitcoin in Asia. It has an easy user interface which is simple to handle by any retail merchant. Visit http://acceptbitcoin.coinpip.com/ and sign up for an account there to get started!
