First-of-its-kind-in-India mobile bitcoin startup Zebpay, which is the first in India to enable bitcoin transactions, continues to make them simpler through its unique app.
Zebpay today announced a new set of app features exclusively for pro bitcoiners. Already available on Google Play, the app’s new features allows users to set their own bitcoin price (bid / ask), keep Rs balance in the app to buy bitcoin instantly, and check transaction status using transaction id.
These features are available to all existing and new users who download the latest version and add significantly to Zebpay’s prominent features.
We started Zebpay with a mission to make bitcoins simple. We are focused on providing the simplest way for users to buy, sell, store and spend bitcoins. Today we are excited to launch two huge new features for our pro users on Android. And coming very soon on iPhone”
said Sandeep Goenka, founder and COO of Zebpay on the new release.
New Features Highlights:
● Rs Account
Users can now see their Rs balance in Zebpay app. When users sell bitcoins, their Zebpay Rs account will be credited. A user can either withdraw this amount to his / her bank account or use it to instantly buy bitcoins in future. For pro users, rather than having to do a bank transfer for every buy and sell, users can now simply maintain a Rs balance in the Zebpay Rs account.
● Trade (Bid/Ask) – Now set your own bitcoin price on Zebpay
Users can now set a buy (bid) or sell (ask) price for buying / selling bitcoins. Zebpay will execute this order on finding a matching offer. So users can set the prices and Zebpay will take care of getting the best price.
● Bitcoin transaction id – On user demand
Now users can see the bitcoin network transaction id when they send bitcoins to a bitcoin address. This means no need to call customer support to find out the status of a transaction. Users can simply click on the transaction id and check the status by themselves.
Zebpay’s android app is already rated at 4.4 stars out of 5 in Play store and Goenka said that ratings are climbing every month. He further added that the reviews and forums were full of congratulatory messages from the users appreciating Zebpay’s simplicity and our customer service.
