Social media has grown dramatically in recent years, becoming ubiquitous in many parts of the globe. It is now one of the main ways we communicate with loved ones, friends, and the world at large. Social media is also emerging as a platform for finding and buying products. SyncBeat is focusing on a comprehensive solution for businesses exploring this new frontier, and a way for customers to access businesses around the world.
“The integration with social media opens new marketplace possibilities,” SyncBeat co-founder Joswell Valdez said in an interview with Alley Watch. “Your connections may not be just friends and family, but also businesses who make products and services available online. Our app allows you to shop and pay using social media. It’s fast and convenient.”
SyncBeat is developing a social commerce solution for businesses and customers that will make it easier and simpler for people to transact globally. The company’s mobile app, Sync.cr, is part social media network, part payment service, and part global marketplace. Using the app will allow people to buy goods directly from businesses, send money to friends, and donate to charities with bitcoin-powered transactions, through social media websites like Facebook and Twitter.
The creators of the app plan to make the experience of loading money into your account much easier than current options, including bank accounts or credit cards. The company is also developing a wide network of businesses around the world, that have been vetted, which app users can buy goods from.
“We eliminate the need for emails or even a Bitcoin address. It’s so much simpler. There’s huge cost savings potential with using Bitcoin, but until now the process hasn’t been very user-friendly or efficient. We’re changing that.”
