Our story so far

    The first big client is on board: the world-famous tech news site, The Register, integrates the SatoshiPay payment solution.

    Stellar partnership

    We switch our settlement backend from Bitcoin to Stellar, and through a partnership with SDF receive a marketing grant of 50m XLM (worth ~€10m).

  • January 2017

    Growth!

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

  • February 2016

    Launch

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

  • April 2015

    Pivot!

    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.
