Bitjoy Brings Bitcoin-Based In-App Purchase and Engagements
US, December 4, 2015 at 17:01 UTC
Austin, Texas – Bitjoy, the world’s first bitcoin-based user engagement and in-app purchase platform for mobile app developers, enters public beta this month. With support for iOS, Android and Unity, Bitjoy empowers thousands of mobile app developers with the ability to accept bitcoin for in-app purchases and reward bitcoin to users completing engagements within their apps.
Lynn Duke, founder of Bitjoy says, “…as 7-year veteran app developers ourselves, we saw a giant gap between Apple and Google tools compared to what’s available in the bitcoin space for in-app purchase and engagements. We believe bitcoin will create entirely new business models for app ecosystems.”
The platform is running on several apps in the Google Play Store and has been in private beta since September. During that time, over 2 million in-app engagements have been paid out to users.
“As a developer, imagine being able to withdraw your in-app sales in a mere 10 minutes instead of net-30, or imagine saying goodbye to the 30% commission app stores typically charge. Bitjoy enables bidirectional transfer of bitcoin between developers and their users – limited only by the developer’s imagination,” Lynn continues.
Interested developers can sign up at www.bitjoy.io for a free account and to be notified when the SDKs are available for download later this month. Additional features expected to come online in Q1 2016 include player-to-player tipping and global app “pots”.
