After a long process and work in conjunction with the innovative minds and hard-working developers from the Polis project, we are glad to announce the inclusion of Gather Network to the PolisPay payment platform.
Even as cryptocurrency and its community of users have experienced significant growth in popularity and use, liquidity remains a substantial challenge for the whole industry, hindering its mass adoption and its integration into ordinary life.
Gather was started with one simple mission: to fix the internet’s broken business model. Leveraging their expertise in cloud computing and blockchain technology, their specialty is in combining new and existing technologies together to unlock new revenue opportunities for everyone.
This is managed by building a state of the art three Layer ecosystem, with layer 0 being the hardware Layer – Gather Online, layer 1 being the protocol layer, a hybrid proof of work and proof of stake blockchain – Gather Network, and layer 2 being the application layer – Gather Cloud.
Their Ecosystem is derived from processing power generated by the hardware layer and flowing securely back to the application layer, via the protocol layer.
The PolisPay Platform
The PolisPay concept was proposed in 2017 to bring real-world use cases to cryptocurrencies. This would be done through the implementation of a series of features that would enable our users to spend their digital assets on real-world goods and services.
We can make our vision through the PolisPay app, which is a multi-currency non-custodial wallet with features intended to bridge the non-crypto world to the Crypto future.
One of those features is the Epay Mastercard® card, which is a card that you can top-up from within the app itself, using your Gather.
We also have the feature of gift cards, which enables you to use your cryptocurrencies in the real world goods and services. We support over 30+ countries for this feature and a low fee.
Also, with the Shift feature, you can instantly convert your Gather to other cryptocurrencies from within your light wallet.
When we say that this version of the PolisPay app is the most secure ever, we mean it, especially now that we have implemented Trezor support. Desktop users can now save their Crypto assets in the safest way possible via Trezor hardware wallets.
The implementation of these features allows us to further integrate the use of digital currencies into people’s daily expenses, narrowing the barrier between their digital assets and real-world items.
As mentioned above, our Gift Card service includes different types of services, from mobile to gaming in over 40+ countries!
Although we have major countries like the United States, or most of Europe, our plan by the end of the year is to reach over 160 countries all around the world!
This way it will become easier for Crypto users to obtain goods and services with the coin of their choosing.
With them you can use your Crypto to get digital gift cards from your favorite shops without leaving our app, use your Crypto on real-world goods and services.
This feature allows you to use your stored Crypto to buy from an extensive variety of stores such as Amazon, Spotify, Nintendo, Playstation, and many more! With an extending list of over 46 Countries, which keeps growing.
Epay Mastercard® card
Part of the new features introduced on PolisPay comes a new way for our users to use their Gather to buy real-world goods and services, with a card that is accepted almost anywhere in the world.
It consists of a prepaid Mastercard® card, that can be recharged via the new feature of the PolisPay app: The gift cards.
The epay card is a prepaid card that is managed on a prepaid basis. You can use your card to pay almost everywhere where MasterCard® is accepted. Once the card is activated and topped up, you can use it worldwide: For online shopping, to pay in shops, or to withdraw cash from an ATM.
The epay card Prepaid Mastercard® is embossed and does not feature a name on the card. This enables you to pay anonymously online and offline up to €100. Should you wish to spend more, you can identify yourself within minutes using the Bitcou video identification procedure and thus immediately increase your monthly limit to €4,000 (annually: €36,000).
The card can be ordered through Bitcou GmbH. The recharge is then possible via gift card through the PolisPay App in €100, €50, and €25. For the shipping of a single card and activation, Bitcou charges €20. PolisPay is the first app in the world where you can load the card with crypto.
The epay cards are available for the following countries:
Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and United Kingdom.
You can start to order the card by clicking here.
This service allows our users to instantly convert between cryptocurrencies. So no matter which coin you have saved, it can easily be changed into the crypto of your choosing.
Since PolisPay is a non-custodial wallet, you will not need to store your cryptocurrencies in exchanges or any kind of 3rd party wallet, risking your assets to be stolen or locked by other companies. With PolisPay Wallet you own your keys, and with PolisPay Shift you are able to exchange them anytime to another cryptocurrency of your choosing, without you ever needing to go to an exchange.
We support over 30 cryptocurrencies for shift, and we are adding more coins each day. With this option at hand, a huge world of possibilities open up.
Rejoice, GATHER community!
We firmly believe the addition of Gather to the PolisPay Project will result in a significant improvement for all of our users, who will now gain the ability to store, build and manage their assets freely, and, most importantly, in a secure way.
As of right now, PolisPay is in at an Open Beta stage, and currently accepting applicants to test their services.
