BIPS (Bitcoin Internet Payment System) makes it much easier for people to get started with buying, selling, and trading through the use of Bitcoin. The great thing about BIPS is that it is optimised for both in-store transactions and e-commerce exchanges. It offers the complete package. This is further signified by the fact that the app is born out of feedback and surveys conducted by the members of the general public. Therefore, BIPS has been generated with you in mind.


Electrum – Peace of mind provided through the protection of coins

Electrum is a fantastic app because it protects you should you have the misfortune of losing coins because of a problem with your PC or alike. A secret seed allows you to recover your encrypted Bitcoin wallet. You will fail to find another Bitcoin app that provides as high levels of security as Electrum does.
