BERLIN - March 31, 2016. SatoshiPay, a blockchain-based nanopayments company that enables digital transactions on a micro-scale, today announced interim results of its product launch.
SatoshiPay’s technology enables content publishers to facilitate nanopayments, generating new revenue streams for publishers by allowing them to monetize content they previously would be unable to.
On February 1st, 2016, SatoshiPay released the first version of its product, which integrates seamlessly with WordPress, the world’s most popular web publishing platform, powering over 26% of websites globally.
SatoshiPay co-founder & CEO, Meinhard Benn was quoted “we were eager to release the first version of our product as fast as possible and the engagement from publishers and users has been tremendous”.
SatoshiPay is pleased to report that in under 2 months, the company’s platform:
• Facilitated over 1,607 sales
• Catalogued over 6,687 items for sale
• Adopted by over 120 publishers
• Generated over 7,964 unique user wallets
“We are very early on in the development of our product, but we’ve had an impressive reaction to the product without any advertising or marketing. We have proven that nanopayments can create monetisation opportunities, where they didn’t exist before” continued Benn.
Master Investor Ltd, the company that operates the hugely successful “Master Investor” magazine is one of the early adopters of SatoshiPay, utilising the product on just one web page, has seen strong results using SatoshiPay. Swen Lorenz, CEO of Master Investor said “We are big believers in nanopayments as a means to monetise content that we traditionally haven’t been able to monetise, we are very impressed with the interim results and are eager to expand the trial.”
SatoshiPay intends to release future updates to its WordPress product as well as expanding its product line to support the growing demand for nanopayments across digital products that run on the web and mobile.
SatoshiPay was founded in Berlin in September 2014 by Meinhard Benn, Henning Peters and Kilian Thalhammer as a Bitcoin payments company. SatoshiPay Ltd is headquartered in London and development is done through the Berlin subsidiary SatoshiPay Germany UG. Angel funding for SatoshiPay Ltd was supplied by Axel Springer Plug & Play and Henning Peters, seed funding was raised through publicly listed companies Coinsilium Group (ISDX:COIN) and FastForward Innovations (LON:FFWD). Development of SatoshiPay’s nanopayment product started in April 2015 and its beta version was released in February 2016.
