Shift Payments is working to make it as easy to spend digital currencies, cryptocurrencies and loyalty points as it is to spend regular, fiat money.
Shift is a Y Combinator ’14 company, raised a seed round from no angels.
The Shift Card works exactly the same as any of the cards in users’ wallets today. Merchants continue to bear business as usual fees while users get to make everyday purchases with everything from fiat to bitcoin to gold.
Shift is still early on, but we are LIVE with Visa and a bank in the US. We’ve built out our full stack processing and settlement system. In addition to the Card, we have a companion mobile wallet that that we hope will become the primary tool customers use to interact with their money.
