Whenever I look at mobile Bitcoin wallets, one of the first things I wonder is whether or not my mother would use it? She has no technological background and never uses a computer, yet, she has seen the benefits Bitcoin has to offer. So, let’s say I want to set her up with her mobile Bitcoin wallet someday, what are some of the features that she would be looking for? Let’s see if ZebPay can answer that question for me…
ZebPay – Bitcoins for Everyone, Every Day
Most mobile Bitcoin wallets are putting a lot of effort into creating a beautiful user experience. By making the wallet interface as clutterless as possible, it becomes easier to keep an eye on your digital currency wealth, wherever you go. However, that is not the bread and butter of every mobile Bitcoin client. We wouldn’t need competitors if that was the case.
Bringing Bitcoin to everyone on the planet sounds like a noble cause, yet, accomplishing that idea is a lot harder than you might think. Venturing into the world of Bitcoin is still scary for most people, because there is no simple and clean interface to work with. Because of ZebPay, that story changes in an instant.
One of the things I truly like about ZebPay’s mobile Bitcoin wallet is the fact you don’t need to sign up in order to use it. In fact, your Bitcoin wallet address is linked directly to your mobile phone number, making it very easy to send Bitcoin to other people you are in regular contact with. Plus, no one likes sign up processes, especially as a novice Bitcoin user, right?
Using a mobile phone number to identify Bitcoin wallets serves other purposes that will come in handy for many users. You can send or receive money by using mobile numbers, in the same way that social messaging works. Instead of just sending an SMS or a Whatsapp message, you can now send Bitcoin to anyone in the world.
But, there is also the topic of security. Linking something to a mobile phone number is convenient, but whether or not it is safe is a different matter altogether. In order to make sure your Bitcoin wallet is safe, ZebPay uses industry standard security. There is no need to create manual backups of your Bitcoin-related data. And, on the topic of where your Bitcoin funds are stored, ZebPay stores all funds in cold storage.
For Individuals and Businesses
Even though most of the things I mentioned above are looked at from a consumer point of view, there is something to be gained by merchants and retailers as well. Accepting cashless payments is an increasingly popular trend and, instead of having to walk over to customers willing to pay, you can simply let them pay in Bitcoin by using ZebPay’s mobile app.
All it takes is having people send a text message to your assigned mobile number, and you can see the payment coming in right away. ZebPay operates on the principle of “zero confirmations”, meaning that funds become available to spend as soon as it has been received. Not to mention, this makes it a lot easier to pay out other employees, too, as you just have to send them a text message.
