Swapin Sets The Stage For Another Roadmap Milestone

The Swapin team is ready for yet another major milestone, and will soon launch the much-anticipated InstaBuy crypto-purchasing tool. InstaBuy will join the Swapin lineup in the coming months, and will be featured in the Swapin app in addition to the existing lineup of InstaFill, InstaPay, and Predefined payments.

Swapin also has redefined the way businesses approach the crypto audience, with the easy-to-implement E-Com plug-and-play ecommerce widget and CoinCollector – a way for customers to pay with crypto with a pre-filled payment link. All Swapin B2B tools seamlessly convert crypto-to-fiat and deposit it into a corporate IBAN account.

The InstaBuy solution will allow Swapin users to purchase top cryptocurrencies using a debit card or credit card. Swapin’s list of supported cryptocurrencies includes:

Click InstaBuy and on the next page select the cryptocurrency you would like to purchase and the amount in fiat you would like to spend on digital assets. The InstaBuy tool will calculate the exchange rate and display the information for the customer to confirm before proceeding with the purchase.

After confirming all of the information is correct, begin the next steps to enter payment information. Swapin is a trusted, licensed financial services provider established in Europe, utilizing cutting edge security measures to keep customer funds safe.

Swapin Adds GBP Currency Support To B2C Solutions

When we announced the Swapin company roadmap for 2022 and 2023, we set our sights first on enabling support for GBP in addition to EUR. Other important forward-looking milestones from the roadmap include the debut of InstaBuy, new crypto asset support, and a virtual IBAN implementation. 

We are proud to reveal that GBP support is now live across all Swapin B2C products and services. 

The Swapin Guide To All-New GBP Support

Starting today, Swapin users can specify between receiving and sending EUR or GBP when using either InstaPay or InstaFill. GBP support will also be available for InstaBuy when the new tool for instant crypto purchase launches later this year. 

Selecting between EUR or GBP settlement will update the exchange rate calculation to reflect the chosen fiat currency. Each type of fiat currency is also noted in the Swapin account history. 

When using InstaPay, the receiver you specify can now receive GBP or EUR — depending on the situation or need. If you rely on InstaFill to top up an account with cash, you now have the choice between GBP and EUR.

Swapin Research: The Future Of Real Estate Transactions With Crypto

A recent partnership between Swapin and real estate giant RE/MAX has the cryptocurrency community pumped and thinking ahead of what the future of real estate transactions may hold when combined with the power of crypto. 

The latest Swapin Research compares the growing crypto industry with the positively enormous real estate market and the incredible promise and disruptive power of the internet. 

Here is what you need to know about Swapin solutions, the monumental RE/MAX partnership, and the future of real estate transactions using cryptocurrencies. 

How The $1 Trillion Crypto Market Can Change The $350 Trillion Real Estate Market

According to Swapin research, the global real estate market is one of the largest and most important in the world, worth more than $350 trillion in value. The investment class has seen exponential growth in the United States, China, Europe, and elsewhere globally. 

Today, the total cryptocurrency market capitalization is worth roughly $1 trillion by comparison. Although the value might seem insignificant in absolute dollar terms, it represents tremendous growth potential in the emerging asset class. Investors have reaped the benefits of real estate growth for hundreds of years, while cryptocurrencies have barely been around for over a decade and are only just getting started. 

When the new payment technology eventually reaches its potential, it could also have a transformative effect on the real estate industry, which is why the RE/MAX and Swapin partnership is such a significant milestone event for both sectors and beyond. 

How The RE/MAX And Swapin Partnership Is The First Major Step Toward Change

The partnership has RE/MAX leveraging Swapin’s CoinCollector technology. Using CoinCollector, customers receive an easy-to-use crypto payment link with pre-filled information to make the experience simple. Exchanges can be fulfilled to buy residential or commercial real estate globally in a few clicks. 

All Swapin solutions instantly convert cryptocurrencies into fiat, which is connected directly to a business bank account. Swapin handles the conversion process immediately and without a need for crypto-focused accounting or compliance — Swapin takes care of it all. 

The frictionless process only takes seconds from start to finish. RE/MAX or whatever business that is utilizing the tool never has to hold crypto — the crypto is converted seamlessly and integrated into the realm of traditional finance. 

Get A Closer Look At The Innovative Swapin Solutions Offered Today

CoinCollector and E-Com represent the B2B segment of the company’s crypto-to-fiat products and services. There are also several innovative B2C tools, which include InstaFill, InstaPay, and Predefined Payments. 

InstaFill lets users connect a bank account to a unique Swapin crypto wallet. The moment any crypto assets hit that wallet, they are instantly converted to fiat currencies and sent to the associated bank account. 

InstaPay allows users to pay anyone at any time using crypto that is instantly converted into fiat. Predefined Payments lets users make recurring InstaPay transactions with easy-to-use templates. Cover monthly bills like rent, utilities, internet, and more.  

See For Yourself What Swapin Is All About

The cryptocurrency market still comes with many barriers and gaps that are left for innovative companies to fill. Swapin solutions are doing just that for major brands in significant consumer segments like real estate, luxury goods, and much more.

New Swapin App Released, Enhanced Convenience For Corporate Clients

When Swapin revealed its updated development roadmap several weeks ago, among the many milestones we have planned in the months ahead, we anticipated releasing an application update before the end of Q2.

We are proud to reveal that the new app update is now live, improving the entire user experience and interface as a whole, with an added focus on enhancing the convenience for corporate and business clients during onboarding.

New App Design Now Live, Redesigned User Interface

The Swapin app has received a visual redesign to better align with the recent rebranding from Piixpay to Swapin and to best reflect our ambitious company roadmap. The user interface and experience have been thoroughly upgraded for increased usability and simplicity. Great care has gone into making the experience smoother for all users.

The Swapin app is the gateway to our lineup of innovative B2B and B2C services, making it a critical focus of our development teams. Further app updates and improvements are planned for the future. 

B2B solutions include the E-Com e-commerce widget and CoinCollector – a tool that allows invoice-based businesses to issue a payment link with payment information pre-filled for ease of use. Connecting to the crypto audience is proven lucrative for luxury brands or companies dealing with high-price assets like real estate, cars, or gold.

B2C solutions include InstaPay and InstaFill, enabling users to make recurring, predefined payments, pay bills, rent, utilities, and more, or send one-off payments to landlords or service providers. Such services can also be used to pay employee salaries or daily corporate expenses.

Improved Business Onboarding Process Benefits Corporate Clients

Prior to the latest app update, opening a business account with Swapin required an active email exchange with an account representative, causing unnecessary delays and back and forth conversations. The new Swapin app now features an easy-to-use online form for opening business accounts, making the onboarding process quick and straightforward. 

At the convenience of the business, users can access an online form and complete the required AML/KYC process and any associated account verification steps. After the account is verified and the onboarding process is completed, business users can instantly take advantage of Swapin B2B and B2C crypto-to-fiat payment tools.

Businesses benefit from avoiding the overhead and risk related to accepting cryptocurrencies. Volatility, compliance, and more are all handled safely by licensed Swapin tools. Any crypto payments made using the B2B solutions offered by Swapin are immediately converted to EUR and transferred to a connected IBAN account.

Current Swapin business partners include real estate company RE/MAX, investment firm Aufort Gold, luxury diamond retailer E-Jewels, and many more. Visit Swapin.com to learn more how Swapin B2B and B2C solutions can benefit your business.

Swapin’s Approach To AML/KYC Explained

Our mission to bridge the gap between crypto and traditional finance has been made beyond clear. And while we will continue to make that the primary message we convey as a brand, we also aim to raise industry standards around operating within a fully regulated environment and be ahead of the curve with crypto-related compliance.

Swapin is also a regulated European digital services provider and as a member of the greater financial community, will strictly adhere to recommendations and guidelines surrounding AML/KYC procedures and policies. Transparency is also an essential pillar of Swapin’s brand image, which is why we will be using this blog post to shed some light on our AML/KYC process.

How Swapin Sets To Raise Industry Standards Across The Board

Since the Swapin rebranding, revamped roadmap release, and successful €1.68M funding round, the company has been growing at a tremendous rate. The innovative lineup of B2B services is attracting partners like RE/MAX, Pax World, Aufort Gold, and E-Jewels, while B2C products are helping more consumers than ever before pay for everyday goods or recurring monthly bills.

As a fully regulated European financial entity, a member of the Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and a Swiss Crypto Valley Association member, Swapin takes its responsibilities extremely seriously. Business customers complete an onboarding process, while individuals are subject to identity verification as part of Swapin’s AML/KYC process.

What Is AML/KYC? AML/KYC Procedures And Policies Explained

AML stands for “anti-money laundering,” and KYC is an acronym for “know your customer.” Each represents a slew of laws, regulations, policies, and procedures aimed at uncovering the flow of illicit funds. These two policies go hand and hand and require the verification of personal details such as identification, address, employment, and more. 

These policies are put in place across all members of the international financial community to ensure the safety of all participants and target crimes such as tax evasion, human or drug trafficking, and the funding of terrorist organizations. Annual money laundering flows are estimated to be over $1.6 trillion per year.

How Swapin Approaches AML/KYC For Its Customers

Customer due diligence is a necessary piece of the KYC process. Financial institutions like banks, brokers, or digital asset providers, must screen new customers. Swapin’s AML/KYC process was designed to be as minimally invasive as possible, requiring only a few critical steps. The entire process only takes a few minutes unless Swapin’s verification team cannot legibly make out the verification documents provided. Customers can try again immediately if this occurs.

The Swapin AML/KYC process will require identity verification, as well as address verification. Supporting documents such as a utility bill, mortgage payment, tax bill, etc., are acceptable forms of address verification. Additional information may be requested, such as income levels, employment information, and how much capital you intend to deposit. Swapin reserves the right to update the AML/KYC policy at any time to ensure ongoing compliance with global financial regulators.

Swapin For Business: E-Com Widget Explained

The business world has been ready to embrace emerging payment technologies like cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, and more. Yet the entire system itself has been segregated from the traditional banking system, preventing wide-scale adoption and easy implementation. This is especially true for businesses that have additional concerns surrounding volatility, accounting, and regulatory compliance.

Fortunately for the future of finance, Swapin and its innovative B2C and B2B solutions are enabling consumers and businesses alike to connect to the world of crypto, tap into new audiences, and create additional revenue streams previously inaccessible. In this blog post, we are specifically looking at how Swapin’s E-Com widget can make accepting cryptocurrencies as a business – yet receiving fiat to a connected bank account – seamless, simple, and something businesses cannot afford to miss.

How Crypto Is Set To Replace Cash

The recent pandemic has forever changed the world and increasingly propelled it toward a cashless and all-digital future when it comes to finance. Bitcoin and the blockchain tech behind it created a world of borderless and decentralized opportunities with the potential to disrupt traditional finance as we know it.

The only problem is that the changing of the guard is never fast or painless. The current system won’t go down without a fight, and it is preventing cryptocurrencies from gaining rapid adoption. For example, because businesses don’t accept crypto, the only way for users to take advantage of its value is to cash it out into fiat. Companies struggle to accept crypto because, by the time they receive the payment, the price of the asset has changed so significantly.

Swapin B2B Solutions, E-Com Widget Explained

This is where Swapin crypto-to-fiat solutions come into play. Swapin currently offers the B2B sector two unique tools: E-Com and CoinCollector. Each tool allows businesses to accept crypto from their customers and clients, yet the funds are instantly and seamlessly converted into EUR (and in the future, GBP) and sent to a connected bank account. CoinCollector works via a payment link that allows users to pay in crypto, while E-Com is a widget that we’re using this blog post to explain in more detail.

E-Com is an innovative tool that lets businesses and merchants of all sizes and needs easily embed a payment widget into any online storefront or website. E-Com works as a plug-and-play tool compatible with top e-commerce platforms like WooCommerce and others. Once implemented, customers and clients can make payments in crypto, but once again, the bank account specified by the business will immediately receive fiat instead. 

Why Businesses Choose Swapin Products And Services

Both CoinCollector and E-Com are instant services, so the price a customer pays is precisely what arrives in the business’s bank account. There is no fear of loss or frustration over volatility. The easily implementable system also takes care of all crypto compliance and accounting for the business, so there is no added stress or operational headaches.

Because the process is so easy and effective, Swapin B2B products and services have attracted world-renowned partners such as real estate giant RE/MAX, luxury jewelry retailer E-Jewels, and many others. These innovations allow crypto holders to spend their assets on homes, automobiles, watches, and other goods.

Swapin: Our Story So Far & A Look At What’s Next

Swapin, today, is hard at work revolutionizing the crypto-to-fiat payments segment. But the company’s roots began many years ago, and much like the rebranding from Piixpay to Swapin, there have been many significant transformations along the way of the long journey.

These transformations have occurred within the Swapin team, roadmap, and even across the crypto and finance industries themselves. In this latest blog post, we are taking a walk down memory lane to tell the story of Swapin so far. We will also reveal a taste of what to expect next from our expanding lineup of innovative B2C and B2B solutions.

Early Beginnings: Explaining Swapin’s Deep Crypto Roots

Swapin founder and CEO Evald-Hannes Kree got his start in the cryptocurrency industry in 2013. As an early pioneer in crypto, together with his partner, Kree launched a mining facility in 2014. Profits began to grow, and that’s when the first seeds for the idea that eventually became Swapin were planted.

Kree and his partner couldn’t hold only crypto profits, as there was a need to pay bills and expand operations. Business partners and vendors didn’t accept crypto at the time, so there was no other choice but to cash out crypto into euros. The duo used exchanges to convert funds, but orders filled slowly, leaving them susceptible to market volatility and exposed to potential losses. 

This is how the idea for Swapin, formerly Piixpay, was born. Kree and his partner realized that there was serious demand for a simple crypto-to-fiat solution that anyone could use. The goal is to bridge the gap between crypto and traditional finance for once and for all.

Overcoming Challenges: How The Finance Industry Has Changed

Despite the clear need for such a solution to exist, many significant challenges were faced. For example, banks today aren’t always willing to work with crypto-based businesses, and crypto today has gone mainstream. Back when Swapin was being built, few banks even knew what crypto was, let alone were willing to give out a business loan to related businesses.

From there, undeterred, Kree led Swapin to become the first-ever startup from Estonia to attend the StartupYard Seed Accelerator program. The program provided early connections with investors to establish critical strategic relationships and invaluable learnings from industry mentors.

In the years that followed, these connections brought Swapin resounding success as part of a funding round that raised €1.68M. The funding round also attracted several well-known investors and industry figures –– such as Estonian tech visionary Taavi Kotka, former Plumbr CEO Ivo Mägi, EveryPay founder Kristjan Novitski, and Covesting founder Dmitrij Pruglo –– who have enlisted on the Swapin board.

Current Focus: Partnerships And Expansion

The news of the funding round, along with these essential connections, are already opening new doors for the renewed and refreshed Swapin brand. Swapin is proud to reveal that it has established several key partnerships with reputable brands across real estate, jewelry, luxury goods, and investments. 

Partners include RE/MAX, Pax World, Aufort Gold, and E-Jewels. The list is constantly growing, and Swapin is working to bring in additional merchants and businesses who seek to reach the crypto audience using B2B solutions like E-Com and CoinCollector. Customer behavior data shows that crypto users are more likely to spend crypto profits in these consumer categories.

E-Com and CoinCollector allow these world-renowned businesses to invoice customers in crypto yet accept fiat –– or integrate a crypto-accepting e-commerce widget into their online storefronts. All Swapin solutions are instantaneous, send an equivalent amount of fiat to a connected bank account, and all without the risk of crypto market volatility or the headaches of crypto accounting.

What’s Next: Upcoming Swapin Roadmap Milestones

In addition to the B2B products above, Swapin also offers B2C tools like Instafill and Instapay. Each tool allows users to pay for goods and services in crypto, while the merchants themselves receive fiat.

Swapin has several new upcoming products, services, and solutions prepared as part of an ongoing company development roadmap. A recent blog post provided an in-depth look at the 2022-2023 roadmap, which includes multi-currency support for GBP (in addition to EUR), an Electronic Money Institution license, and a virtual IBAN implementation. 

Instabuy is yet another B2C tool on the way that will be released before the year is over, according to the roadmap. Instabuy lets users purchase any major cryptocurrencies in just a few clicks. The list of cryptocurrencies is continually growing, with expansion planned for Q3 2022.

Swapin x RE/MAX: Bridging Crypto and Real Estate

No matter what your business is, Swapin’s flexible crypto-to-fiat solutions can take your business to a whole new level by allowing you to accept crypto as a payment method without any of the associated risks and hassles.

Things like the volatility of the market and the hassle with accounting can make businesses reluctant to work with crypto. For a while now, the real estate market has been dipping its toes into the crypto world by allowing properties to be sold for digital assets, but this adoption is slow due to the issues mentioned above.

In spite of these concerns, RE/MAX – an international real estate company – is diving head first into the world of crypto thanks to CoinCollector, a tool from Swapin that allows buyers to use their digital assets to purchase property, while protecting both sides from market fluctuations. Let’s take a look at how this solution works in practice.

Imagine the seller of property only wants to accept payments in euro for the property they are selling, but an interested buyer is looking to pay with their Bitcoin. Usually, this would make a sale between the two parties impossible. But with CoinCollector, the buyer can purchase the property in Bitcoin, while the seller receives the funds in euro immediately to their bank once the transfer is complete.

Using this Swapin feature, the seller sends a unique payment link to the buyer, who then enters the agreed-upon euro amount. The buyer then chooses the cryptocurrency with which they want to pay – in this example, Bitcoin – and CoinCollector calculates the exact amount in BTC equivalent to the fiat sum. 

After this is done, the buyer receives details on both the exact sum in Bitcoin and the wallet address to which they will transfer it. That BTC/EURO exchange rate is then locked for 30 min so that the buyer doesn’t suffer from any market fluctuations. The seller is also protected because once the funds have been successfully transferred, the agreed-upon amount in euros will hit the seller’s bank account within the next few minutes. It’s that simple!

Ruslan Gulida, the Estonian regional manager of RE/MAX explained how Swapin helped expand his business and grow sales by adding a crypto payment method.

Piixpay Celebrates 4-year Anniversary of First Crypto Real Estate Sale

This month Piixpay celebrates the 4th Anniversary of the first real estate item purchased using its services. It was already far 2017, and the industry landscape was different both within crypto and the property.

The latter used to be far away from the booming crypto, as agencies and average clients either didn’t know how beneficial bitcoin transactions could be or didn’t trust enough in promising but yet not matured blockchain-tech. 

Nevertheless, the first heralds of the upcoming changes were already noticeable, so the Piixpay client has paid for her Spanish apartment with crypto. Those were the early days for the crypto break-in to the prime real estate industry, and every single case was an occasion worth highlighting by the press. And so every single one was a kind of a scoop. 

For instance, the Ukrainian apartment bought by TechCrunch co-founder Mark Ginsburg via Ether-based smart contracts was covered by no less than Newsweek, where it was publicly claimed to be the first-ever real estate purchased with cryptos. We in Piixpay have one or two reasons to dispute their primacy, though. 

The following four years have completely turned the tables, so our days, the real estate industry has gone far on the way of blockchain adoption. The market is literally filled with niche startups, including ones really keeping in the public eye like Propy, Ubitquity, and some others. The client demand in paying with crypto is immensely high, and it is still growing. 

The Piixpay team and its service see no way to stand by, especially whilst holding a pioneering honor in this direction. This April shapes up to be fulfilled with amazing news, including the one we can already shed light on. 

As a follow-up to the trend set in 2017, the Piixpay team is glad to provide the local Estonian real estate brokers with access to dealing in crypto. Follow Piixpay in order not to miss the upcoming updates on the topic.
