Politico — The best mobile wallet for Bitcoin is almost here!
Today, the Verge is rolling out a new article that explores the future of mobile payments.
And we’re betting it will be a big one.
“The future is not just about the internet, it’s also about the mobile, so you want to make sure that your payment experiences are going to be mobile-centric, too,” says Paul Chua, founder and CEO of tapjoy.
“You want to be able to pay for everything that you want on your phone in a seamless way.”
With tapjoy, you can pay for your favorite products on your smartwatch, iPhone, or Android phone.
It even lets you send cash using your smartphone or tablet.
But the Verge says the most important thing for anyone who wants to use tapjoy is to use the app with the highest privacy settings.
“If you don’t want to track every single transaction that you make, you shouldn’t use tapJoy,” says Chua.
“And it also needs to be used with the most security settings.”
To get that security, tapjoy has built its own software to ensure that your data stays private.
And that software has a big advantage over the competition.
As the Verge notes, the TapJoy team has been testing the software with more than 1 million users, and the results have been extremely positive.
“We’ve gotten pretty close to our target for privacy, which is 100 percent,” says TapJoy CEO Matt Johnson.
“So we’re not just making the app to get people to trust us, but to make it work for everyone.”
So what is tapjoy?
Tapjoy is a free, open source app that lets you pay for things like movies and music.
But it also lets you buy things like virtual currency — something that’s not just for fun, but also for serious business.
“It’s not a cryptocurrency, but it’s a virtual currency,” says Johnson.
It’s like Bitcoin in that it’s digital, but you can also send money with it.
But there’s a catch.
“There’s a lot of things that you can do with virtual currencies that you couldn’t do with cash,” says Michael Wessels, CEO of Tapjoy.
But unlike Bitcoin, Tapjoy lets you do things like purchase merchandise with virtual currency.
And, if you want, you could buy something with your own virtual currency and then transfer that money to your account.
For example, you might be able pay for an iPhone to send an e-mail to someone you care about, and then use that e-mails payment to buy the gift you want.
But instead of sending money, you use your smartphone to pay with virtual money.
And when you’re done, you send that money back to the recipient, and that money is still in the account.
If you want your payments to be secure, you need to make certain you’re using the best encryption and password protection, and using the most secure payment methods.
Tapjoy also lets people store their virtual currency in an online wallet.
That way, if someone tries to use your virtual currency to buy something, they won’t be able access it until you’ve reset the password and have the app unlocked.
But if you just want to send a few bucks to someone and they have an email address for you, you don,t have to worry about that.
“That’s what we’re focusing on,” says Wessel.
“All of our privacy and security features are designed to help us protect your privacy, and not just to make the best payments to your friends.”
