DigiByte (DGB) is a decentralized global UTXO Pow-based blockchain (just like Bitcoin) with a focus on Cyber Security, DigiAssets, Payments & Secure communications technologies. After 8 years of forward-thinking development, DigiByte has become one of the safest, fastest, longest, and most decentralized UTXO blockchains in existence.
In June, we announced the listing of DGB — users of the Switchere platform are now able to buy DGB using a bank card or alternative payment methods available (SEPA, SOFORT, Asian local banks).
Mike Aldy, the Ambo of DigiCorpLabs, has recently interviewed Switchere’s CEO, Dmitriy Koval. Yesterday, the interview went live on the project’s YouTube channel.
We recommend you watch this interview until the end to find out the juiciest information regarding the DGB listing at Switchere. Still, here are the most interesting insights.
This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.
Mike Aldy: Tell us a little bit more about the Switchere website and the services you offer.
Dmitriy Koval: Basically, Switchere is what we call is on-ramp solution. So basically, we help other crypto businesses get more users and enable those users to pay with traditional payment methods, such as using a credit card or wire transfers. So the idea is that we partner with these businesses, and it literally can be any crypto business, for example, NFT marketplace, wallet service, or layer 1 blockchain. Thus, we allow their users to streamline the whole process of purchase of crypto and not leave the app so that their users can buy the crypto that they need without leaving and just doing it in a very fast and efficient manner.
Mike Aldy: Could you just tell us a little bit about how that process of adding DGB evolved and what led to your decision to include DigiByte on your platform?
Dmitriy Koval: Usually, these kinds of decisions are based on the community, and we personally like the DigiByte community a lot, so that was one of the factors — we saw that we could help this community to be able to use more and more payment methods.
Mike Aldy: Tell us about some plans in your roadmap looking ahead.
Dmitriy Koval: So basically, there are a couple of ideas that we are working on. The first is that we want to expand the payment methods, we want to have more local banking methods. We want to have as many payment methods as possible. So this is one of the major ideas. A second idea is a merchant tool that will allow other businesses to start accepting crypto but get dollars or euros in their bank account or again other currencies. And the short idea is that we want to see more corporate clients and to make this process automated.
