Our story so far

  • January 2017


    A funding round with investors from all over the world leads to a €1m cash injection. Time to grow, grow, grow!

  • February 2016


    We launch the beta version of our payment service and a lot of happy users start getting nano-paid! ;)

  • April 2015


    After careful consideration and with the help of our new super-amazing investor Coinsilium we change our focus to nanopayments. We start working on the first prototype of our website widget for pay-as-you-go content payments – which turns out to be an instant hit. :) Give it a go: let.satoshipay.me (beware of bitcoin-snatching dragons)

  • March 2015

    UK Expansion

    We are selected by London-based Fintech Circle angel network as their first bitcoin start-up. Level39 mentor Nicolas joins us as an advisor and starts representing us in London.

  • November 2014


    Axel Springer Plug and Play selects us for their 5th batch and invests in us. Callum and Victor help us to build the first iteration of our payment platform. A mad three months are starting.

  • September 2014


    Meinhard and Henning get together and outline a bitcoin payment platform. Kilian joins a little later and Deutsche Telekom's incubator hub:raum likes us so much that they offer to host us in their "hard working space". Thanks, hub:raum!
