About Bitwala Wallet
Bitwala Wallet want to empower people to exchange value like they exchange ideas. Globally, instantly and at the lowest possible cost. We’re a young, smart and internationally-minded team united by the same values. Bitwala started off as three friends and a dog with a simple idea for paying for everyday items with bitcoin. Back then, Bitcoin had enormous potential and nobody was using it.
Bitwala is bootstrapped and launches an MVP at the start of 2015. The first product is a bank transfer for cryptocurrencies with a prepaid debit card. Bitwala raises its first funding round of €800,000 from HTGF, DCG and an angel investor. Fast-forward to the opening of a bright office-space in Kreuzberg, the hiring of several employees, and a product that processes 75 million euro in transfers.
