October has been an exciting month for our team. The key milestone of the month was the release of dedicated IBAN account service at SpectroCoin. It can be regarded as the core integration between Bankera and SpectroCoin that will enable more fiat payment channels for SpectroCoin clients in the long term.
While Bankera offers unlimited incoming and outgoing payments, the platform has operational limits in place for security reasons. These limits, however, are not set in stone and can be adjusted to the clients’ individual needs at any time. Users can make their outgoing payment thresholds higher or lower in accordance to their individual needs.
One of the key success factors while building our first business – SpectroCoin, was its affiliate program. Thus, we have decided to continue building a community around our projects and issue Bankera affiliate tokens in 2017. As we are focused on blockchain-related businesses, we have chosen to issue our token as an Ethereum ERC-223.
We started Bankera to build a bank for the blockchain era, as we saw an empty niche and a business opportunity there. The lack of trustworthy, stable and crypto-friendly financial institutions was irritating us since we started SpectroCoin, a cryptocurrency exchange, back in 2012. Therefore, we decided to start building a financial service provider which would meet our and other blockchain-related business needs ourselves.
We have launched the Bankera internet banking platform in early 2020, and have been doing our best to grow our customer base – attract new clients and make sure that the current customers are satisfied with our services – ever since. We believe that happy customers are the best form of marketing, and word of mouth can be as powerful as any other form of advertisement. To encourage this practice among our clients, we are introducing the Bankera partner program.
