Campaign Spotlight: Ziglu, Money Done Differently

Campaign Spotlight: Ziglu, Money Done Differently

12th October 2020 by Michaela Salomon

When investing, your capital is at risk.

After its surge in popularity over the past few years, cryptocurrency is at the forefront of financially-savvy minds all over the world. 

However, despite its increasing accessibility as crypto-centric apps crop up all over the fintech scene, none of them have provided a truly end-to-end solution to manage crypto in tandem with FIAT currency – until now.

After co-founding renowned UK challenger Starling Bank, Mark Hipperson noticed inefficiencies in the cryptocurrency market that needed to be solved. In founding Ziglu, his vision was to create one cohesive, user-friendly app to help users manage both traditional and digital currency seamlessly. So, he built a stellar team with years of experience in growing billion dollar companies and put the idea to work – starting with building a cloud banking platform from scratch. Since they launched the app just four months ago, the Ziglu team have not only created an all-in-one solution for currency management, they’ve also raised £5.25 million in equity and grown their community to over 3,500 customers with an ever-growing waitlist. 

Ziglu has brought, what Hipperson calls, the “challenger approach” – innovative, customer-focused disruption – to the world of cryptocurrency. Users can manage their finances all in one place, access competitive and transparent prices in international currencies, and rest assured that their funds are protected. With the recently launched Ziglu Mastercard debit card, they can also make payments in digital or FIAT currency like a local absolutely anywhere in the world. In fact, Ziglu prides itself on being one of the only platforms of its kind to automatically protect its users’ digital currency holdings up to £50,000 against cyber-attacks. This was a fundamental part of Ziglu’s approach to digital currency management from the very beginning, and it’s helped them become one of the best-rated fintech companies in the world. 

Whilst growth to date has been nothing short of impressive, there’s a lot more that users can expect from Ziglu in the coming months. With much the same aggressive and ambitious product ideas as the challengers that revolutionised modern banking in recent years, Ziglu has its sights on a number of new features including FX accounts, improved crypto pricing, European instant payments, credit and split payment options. The proceeds from this round on Seedrs, which has brought on nearly 1,000 investors, will enable Ziglu to bring those ideas to market. With an inherently scalable business model, and an international vision, Ziglu already has an established plan to quickly expand their operations into Continental Europe and North America.

So what’s stopping you from investing in crypto? You can sign up to Ziglu in under three minutes. Or, you can check out their crowdfunding campaign and join over a thousand investors backing their mission. Ziglu has already raised over £2.7 million, and the campaign is closing soon.
