April was the month of multiple launches:
We went live with our business accounts (Start, Standard, and Advanced) on 8 April, giving small and large businesses from the crypto space and outside everything they need. You can find all the details on the plans here, as well as on our fees and limits here on our updated website, where we have also added our updated roadmap until the end of 2019 here.
A much-needed feature was added to our wallets, the ability to buy crypto with credit and debit cards for businesses and individuals, which was very well-received by our community and beyond, due to our cheap and transparent pricing and high limits compared to the industry.
We now enable you to fund your wallet in over 200 local currencies via SWIFT, SEPA, FPS, credit and debit cards, see here, for more details on all features enabled for personal accounts so far, see here.
Furthermore, we have conducted a monthly AMA, where we saw a big increase in attendance and responses, with one topic starting to be discussed: What will we do with the tokens which we receive as fees? We have called for your opinions, which you still can submit by filling our form here. We will discuss the different options in the coming AMA, 10 May.
As always, we are happily sharing the most recent user numbers: 257 businesses and 2761 individuals have now trusted us with their banking matters!
Additionally, our ongoing commitment to transparency was recognized by Binance Info’s transparency initiative, from which we got verified with their V Label.
This month, Kumar and Janina presented at 2 conferences — Coinfest, a highly popular, annual community-driven event organized decentralized around the world, where Janina participated in the Manchester edition, in a panel discussion on a variety of topics related to the future of cryptocurrency:
On 12 April, Kumar was a speaker at Global Blockchain Forum Mumbai, participating in discussions on a cross-industry perspective on blockchain, as well as on blockchain transforming financial services — watch the video here.
