Centbee was launched in 2016 and has been testing the app through use of test coins. The users have reported the ease to send BCH to friends just be selecting from contacts in the phone.

After considering users’ reports and feedback, the app is now available on Google Play and App Store. The google play store has only 33 downloads (at the time of this article) and the overall rating is 4 out of 5.

A couple of users were hesitant about giving out their phone numbers to register for the app. However, Centbee team explained the need. The phone number was a concern even for iOS users as well.

Angus Brown, co-CEO of Centbee was happy to report,

We incorporated much of the feedback from user testing into the beta version of our wallet and are extremely confident of the final product…….Cryptocurrency as a form of payment costs a fraction of what users would pay using their bank accounts, especially for cross-border payments. This is the future of money.

Lorien Gamaroff, co-CEO of Centbee, ”Our key focus in designing the app was to make sending Bitcoin cash to friends as simple as possible.” He adds by saying that it will be adopted globally as the best way to pay especially in Africa and developing markets.

This has been an important first step by innovators all around the world to bring crypto to masses. And Centbee is doing just that. The current price of BCH as reported by CoinMarketCap is $528.60
