Synchronization matters

Right now, we observe crypto technology being developed to cover many fields of our daily life trying to solve a problem or making it more convenient. But when it comes to the application of such technology we, the crypto startups, are far from popular. For new technology to become people’s habit, it has to seamlessly integrate in a familiar manner. That’s why our focus is on user-friendliness and synchronization.

In-app shops catalog

In 2019 we plan to allow physical shops to list their items inside the BitTube wallet app and accept TUBEs as a payment. This will make it easier for TUBE holders to locate stores where TUBEs are accepted, enabling retailers to attract more customers and save on transaction fees. The average credit card processing cost for a retail business is roughly 1.95% — 2% for Visa, MasterCard, and Discover transactions. There are more costs like fixed transaction fee of 0.08–0.10 cents per transaction and monthly fees for maintenance. With BitTube costs per transaction are just a tiny fraction of the ones mentioned above and the fee for cashing to fiat will be around 1.8 %.

Extension update to version 1.0.0.8

We continue to polish the extension with your help. People take for granted most of the software products that are being used on a daily basis without realizing what it takes to make such technology work flawlessly for millions of users. We are extremely happy to receive user reports for issues. We handle them manually, and they are helping us make BitTube better every day. All users buying TUBEs via PayPal helped clean bugs. One of the next steps will be to open buying with Credit/Debit card and other cryptos, followed by the expanding acceptance of TUBE payments and donation.

Spreading the word in more languages

We added Russian and French versions to the home of our apps- bittubeapp.com. The knowledge base website where you can get more information is being translated into more languages currently with the help of an automatic translation, but we are working on a human interpretation. If you find something that reads incorrectly, don’t hesitate to send us a screenshot, and we will correct it. This is a continuous community effort.
