Attention Steemians: STEEM <> USD Added to Metal Pay


Steem_Announcement_Steem_Head.jpg

Hello Steemians, we’re the Metal Pay Team and today we’re excited to announce that we are adding STEEM to our mobile payments app for iOS (with Android to follow in the future). We’ve already published a post to our blog that is geared more for users who are not familiar with Steem, because we want them to get hands-on experience with your blockchain. After speaking with our customers we’ve learned that many of them are new to crypto, and are looking to gain a deeper understanding of this new and exciting technology in ways that fit into their lives.

Real People, Real Apps

We’re always looking for ways to bring new products and services to our users that fit into our vision of making crypto more accessible and useful to everyone. Part of the reason why we’ve decided to make STEEM one of our earliest token additions is that the Steem blockchain supports real-world apps that ordinary people can begin using today.

Bringing STEEM to the Masses

We also know that Metal Pay will deliver a lot of value to Steemians as well. Metal Pay is a person-to-person payments platform that rewards its users with crypto when they send money to friends. We believe that by incorporating amazing tokens like STEEM, we can outcompete products like CashApp and Venmo and become one of the most useful—and most widely-used— payments apps in the world. We think that STEEM, with its 3-second zero-fee transfers, as well as its ability to onboard large numbers of regular people, will help turbocharge our growth while exposing more people than ever to this amazing blockchain.

We’d love to hear what you think of our app, so please download it and leave your feedback in the comments section below. We’ll also be hosting a trivia competition later this week, so be sure to follow us on Steem, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, download the Metal Pay app, and tune in to earn rewards for sharing your crypto knowledge!

Hey, that is great! Always excited to read about Steem Growth!!
Are you working on any solutions to pay from your wallet to non-wallet? A visa / master card thing?

08.07.2019 14:11

Yes to both! Please follow us for updates.

That's brilliant. Having a phone or card payment option would be huge and something I really want to see with STEEM. I'll be watching out for further news.

I will follow you for updates too @metalpay and I'm interested in knowing if you will avoid fractional reserve policies.

I am weary about bank's fractional reserve policy and I'm interested in knowing if @metalpay will be a safe place for deposits.

Thank you!

P.S. You found this before me @jacuzzi 😀

Welcome to STEEM and thank you for choosing to list it in your product. I believe that STEEM is one of the leading blockchain when it comes to lowering the barriers to entry to crypto. STEEM lowered the entry for me and I never looked back.

08.07.2019 17:02
1

For now yes, but we promise to announce any European expansion here on our Steemit account. And we didn't intend to sound misleading with that figure. We simply wanted everyone in the Steem community to feel represented by this first step in making STEEM more accessible to our users, and to inform the Metal Pay community of how popular and useful Steem actually is!

09.07.2019 01:28

Sure, it’s even more useful when I can install it ;) - excited to see European progress. Not everyone lives in the states. That’s all ;) hmm I wonder what percentage do live in the states from the million steemians, I’ll see if I can find out!

Thank you for adapting Steem to your app! This is going to get exciting!

I've also shared your post in the Steem Malaysia Community Page on Facebook, hoping to give you the extra exposure because of its good content.

I hope by doing this, more content creators/bloggers/vloggers will get to know this wonderful platform we both thrive in. :)

Keep creating awesome content!

For once a developer who released on iOS before Android instead of the other way around.

I’m signing up to use #metalpay as soon as I get home.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but does this mean I am able to use my Steem/Bitcoin to buy things anywhere in the USA (online/offline) with a debit card? Or is that a future feature?

08.07.2019 17:37

Features like those are in development. We're working really hard to close the loop between blockchain and payments. Please follow us for development updates!

You have a Steem account with wallet. It should be pretty simple to allow users to request a transfer of “their” tokens from your wallet where you’re holding the tokens. If it takes more than a few days to implement this feature, that would be very concerning.

What's the best way for reaching customer service? I've been attempting to link my bank account but it immediately pops up an error when I submit my information. I gave up yesterday thinking it might be fixed in the coming days but today received the two deposits to my account with no way to verify them on my account. Attempting to add the account again just gives the same error message.

Great news! As a project blogger for all things STEEM ~ Can you answer the question: Will the app also support the smart tokens created by Steem-Engine and Steemit (when they start releasing later this year)?

10.07.2019 07:41

Fantastic! ...So the app is for banking and sending crypto to friends only ~ its not for payment of goes and services like a digital money debit card, RIGHT?

Does the app support the smart contract tokens created by Steem-Engine and Steemit? ...Further, if it does, how can those tokens be listed on the app as well?

Welcome to @steemit really great that @steemit @steem being included. read some of your plans cant wait, I live in SA so may not be here yet and also use android, so will wait for those implimentations to get on board to suport @metalpay. Now all we need is for @steem to get back up to where it belongs in value, guess this would help to that.

thank you, and again welcome to @steemit.

This sounds quite promising. Of course, there are many factors that will make or break Steem, and many which influence its value and its price.

But giving more people access to Steem will have a profound effect. Maybe not soon, but eventually, and ... soon enough.

Hi@metalpay. What interesting publication and tell me can only this application be used only for transfer between users of cryptography steem or can be used in addition to make purchases

Sounds good! glad to know there will be better apps on the market. lately ive seen apps gone to poo. The internet was made to be inventive and new, most of the internet is just there to make a buck and dont care how they perform which i find very sad.

Wow @metalpay that's amazing Steem is on your metalpay app. Now everyone can buy Steem through USD. I would like to about deposit and withdrawal of Steem directly from steemit wallet. Is there any plan for listing SBD to your platform.

This is really a exciting news for all steemians.
Your feedback is anticipated
