SatoshiPay is a company founded in September 2014 in Berlin, that develops and produces solutions for so-called nanopayments using cryptocurrency. These nanopayments can be as small as the value of Bitcoin’s smallest unit - a Satoshi, thus it allows users and companies to trade digital goods in the very small increments.
Meinhard Benn, the founder of SatoshiPay, said:
“I am very grateful for the trust Coinsilium put in us when they decided to invest, with us merely having a rough prototype and not much more than the infamous napkin business plan. With funding secured, we could swiftly return to building the product. A founder’s dream come true.”
SatoshiPay is currently working on a beta version of their service and a full release is expected in the first half of 2016.
