We have big plans for the crypto economy. Here's how we plan to revolutionise it.
Roadmap
2015
Founding

Founders Ben, Jan and Joerg were tired of using banks when paying partners and freelancers abroad. High street banks are not only expensive, they’re also painfully slow and are unfit for anyone with crypto.

So our founders figured why not use the fastest, decentralized way to send money? They turned their idea into a reality by launching their own Bitcoin-based money transfer platform, Bitwala.
