Amber, the Australian-based bitcoin collection application that has created a full generation of Dollar Cost Average (DCA) products worldwide, has announced its launch in the United States, in a press release sent. Bitcoin Magazine.
“We’ve decided to launch the app in phases, so the first few releases in the US won’t have all the functionality of returning to our country in Australia, but it’s a start,” said Amber CEO and founder Alex Svetsky. “We want to get the product into people’s hands so that we can better prioritize what we want to see next.”
The app is currently in private beta for both iOS and Android, with plans to go into a public beta this coming October. Customers will be able to use Amber Basic and their premium service option Amber Black, which allows users to stack as much bitcoin as they can for free. Once the beta goes public, the app will go live in 44 states.
Following the US launch, the company aims to expand into emerging markets in Latin and South America. Amber’s vision for the app is to become a ‘super app’ where users can gain purchasing power in the form of fayt, earn bitcoin and make purchases within the app, all without having to sell their bitcoin.
Svetsky explained: “Bitcoin companies are not just the future of money, the future of freedom technology. Just as Bitcoin breaks all models, so Bitcoin businesses will break down all the diversity varsity businesses like social networking, investment, savings, communication, gaming, commerce, transportation and you Name it.
Amber is proud of investors like Fulgur Ventures, Morgan Creek Digital and a major Australian university.
