ziftrCOIN, a New Hampshire-based startup that aims to onboard the next 10 million cryptocurrency users, is excited to announce that it sold 4,141,444 ziftrCOINs for a total of $878,695* during its Presale, which ran from December 9, 2014 through January 23, 2015.
Ziftr, the company behind ziftrCOIN, will use the money raised during the Presale to help fund its mission of bringing cryptocurrency into the mainstream for consumers and merchants. To accomplish this mission, Ziftr has created a suite of tools and applications designed to integrate with Bitcoin, ziftrCOIN, Litecoin, Dogecoin and other popular altcoins. These tools and applications include the following:
An innovative digital altcoin designed for shoppers. In late 2015, Ziftr will give away 300 million ziftrCOINs so that everyday consumers can begin familiarizing themselves with cryptocurrency. When spent in Ziftr’s merchant network, each ziftrCOIN will have a minimum redemption value of $1, functioning similarly to a coupon.
A secure API that enables merchants to accept cryptocurrency payments as well as credit card payments without having to view customers’ credit card information.
A secure digital wallet that stores all of a user’s payment information – including credit cards, bitcoins, litecoins, dogecoins, ziftrCOINs and other altcoins – in one place.
A worldwide online marketplace where consumers will be able to conduct transactions using credit cards or cryptocurrency.
“I’m thrilled by the support we received during the ziftrCOIN Presale and would like to extend my deepest gratitude to everyone who contributed and made this such a success,” said Bob Wilkins, CEO of Ziftr and ziftrCOIN. “Thanks to all of you, my team and I can spend the coming months moving forward with our mission of bringing cryptocurrency to the masses. We have many exciting announcements on the horizon, so be sure to stay tuned.”
