Tigereum will help early-adopters of crypto send crypto to their non-crypto friends and family.
At the moment, crypto is a pretty exclusive club. Crypto is still the domain of early-adopters and tech-savvy people. Most crypto transfers occur between crypto friends and business associates.
However, early-adopters of crypto do have non-crypto friends.
The point is, you shouldn’t have to go to your digital wallet, convert some crypto to fiat, transfer it to a bank account, and then transfer it again to your non-crypto friend’s bank account, just to send money to your non-crypto friends.
“Experienced crypto users may well have learned to navigate this process with ease by now, but there is a better way,” says Darren Olney-Fraser, Chief Executive Officer of Tigereum.
Tigereum is developing better ways for crypto people to interface more seamlessly with the fiat world in which their non-crypto friends and family live.
Tigereum offers a new way to easily and securely send crypto to non-crypto friends and family without having to convert crypto into fiat, and without a digital wallet.
“We aim to make it easier for you to securely send crypto to your non-crypto friends,” said Mr Olney-Fraser.
Tigereum’s solution is based on a chatbot which will be available on all major social media platforms, starting with Facebook Messenger.
“We will make it possible to send crypto to someone who doesn’t have a digital wallet, so they can deposit it directly into their nominated fiat bank account,” he said.
Tigereum’s prototype bot is available for testing, and feedback is welcome.
Tigereum keeps faith with the principles of crypto – anonymity, encryption, blockchain and security – in the design of its customer interfaces.
Tigereum believes its smooth customer solutions can also help bring more non-crypto people into the crypto world.
Tigereum brings together a team of developers who love to produce smooth customer interfaces for crypto. Tigereum incorporates the best of old banking, new crypto and social media. We believe that our work helps bridge the gap between crypto and non-crypto worlds.
Tigereum has launched a Token Swap which opens on Friday 8 December 2017. This will establish Tigereum Tokens as the internal cryptocurrency for Tigereum’s offerings.

Tigereum CEO Darren Olney-Fraser is leading an innovative development team that will enable crypto to be sent to friends and family simply and securely by instant message.
“We will make sending crypto as easy as sending photos to friends on Facebook,” said Mr Olney-Fraser.
He believes everyone will be sending money by instant message within two years.
“It’s a race against time. Social media companies are working around the clock on this paradigm shift. Crypto needs to keep up,” he said.
Tigereum’s target market is the average person who doesn’t use crypto yet and wants to explore the opportunity, but can’t work it out.
“We are building smooth customer interfaces for crypto users to make it readily accessible to people,” said Mr Olney-Fraser.
“This will help crypto become more mainstream,” he said.
Mr Olney-Fraser wants the customer interface for crypto products to be more like social media platforms.
“Crypto has the answers to a decentralized, borderless, secure, digital, global currency which can be messaged to anyone, anywhere,” he said.
Tigereum aims to adopt the key principles of the crypto world – decentralization, encryption, security, anonymity and community – to deliver mass adoption of crypto for micro-payments.
“To succeed, security is our number one priority – the eye of the tiger if you will,” said Mr Olney-Fraser.
Mr Olney-Fraser still defends the place for digital wallets. “Digital wallets are good for sending larger amounts of crypto. But let’s be realistic, they are not easy for many people. Not everyone is a computer programmer.”
Tigereum Tokens will be created and used as the cryptocurrency in its instant message solution. Senders will buy Tigereum Tokens to message money. Recipients will redeem Tigereum Tokens into crypto or fiat to receive their money.
“We have created fifty million Tigereum Tokens on the Ethereum platform,” said Mr Olney-Fraser, “and forty million of these will be swapped for ETH to help raise funds for this project.”
The Tigereum Token Swap opens on Friday 8 December and closes on Monday 18 December 2017.
If all tokens are swapped, Tigereum will have a war chest of approximately USD$15 million to fund this development.
Tigereum Tokens will be listed on public cryptocurrency exchanges, starting with EtherDelta, from Monday 18 December, with other exchanges to follow soon after.
“I hope the crypto community will ride this Tiger with me and my team for this exciting project,” said Mr Olney-Fraser
