Indian bitcoin startup Zebpay has launched its new mobile wallet for the Android phone.
The company’s founders issued a statement regarding the wallet and its alleged ease of use, saying:
“Zebpay is the world’s first Bitcoin mobile wallet targeted at everyone, not just geeks… If you use popular instant messaging apps, then you already know how to use Zebpay… Once you download Zebpay you can simply send and receive bitcoins to anyone from your contact book. Really, that’s all there is to it.”
Zebpay recently won the top prize at the CoinAgenda conference’s startup competition. Founder of CoinAgenda Michael Terpin said of the competing organizations:
“We were blown away by the quality of the companies who presented… The VC panel was also quite impressed calling it one of the best selections of early-stage Bitcoin companies they’ve seen anywhere.”
An iOS version of the app is currently in development and is set to be released soon. Furthermore, the launch of the new mobile wallet features a special giveaway. Any user who downloads the wallet early will receive a dollar’s worth of bitcoin for free. If they invite other people to download the app, they can earn up to $5.
Said Zebpay co-founder Sandeep Goenka:
“Zebpay wallet’s mission is to be as easy to use as popular chat apps… Its target use is for regular people who want to transact in Bitcoins with their friends, family and local businesses.”
