Announcing Strike Public BETA

Regulatory

Our first hurdle to overcome in pursuing our goals was to address the age-old pain point that has plagued Bitcoin for years; KYC/AML. Strike is a regulated financial product. Because we allow users to interact with both fiat currency and Bitcoin, we are required to comply with KYC/AML laws. However, the question we had was, how much KYC/AML is “good enough” and why?

With Strike, a user can seamlessly send and receive digital transactions such as Lightning payments directly to and from their bank account. In addition, there is a remarkably cool feature that comes prepackaged with your Strike account, strike.me.

Stats

In our private BETA, we have seen incredible usage across a wide variety of use cases. Users young and old have used Strike to buy Bitcoin to their own custody, send remittance payments to family outside of the country, make micropayments to unlock digital content, make payments to other Strike users, purchase goods at brick-and-mortar shops, and make purchases online. Since we began inviting private BETA testers, Strike has seen consistent usage and month over month growth.

Future

The community has waited long enough, and the time has finally come. I’m head over heels excited to see the reaction to Strike’s public BETA. However, you all know me, this is only the beginning.

Thanks

Alright, y’all, I’m going to stop there for today. As always, I save this section for last, minutes before I publish. I’m not only excited but have never felt so driven and ambitious. I am overwhelmed with emotion, not sure what else to say.
