Lastbit

A global payment network for instant & low fee transactions

Lastbit is building a global payment network - using the bitcoin lightning network - to enable anyone, anywhere to pay or get paid instantly and for low fees. Our MVP in Europe features Mastercard debit cards and IBANs in mobile applications that interface directly with Bitcoin and Euros.

Passionate early Bitcoin-er and developer. Left ETH Zurich mid-way through my MSc to build Lastbit full time. Working with bitcoin and playing a European tour with a German band, evidently illustrated the horrors of only legally having access to an Indian bank account but attempting to use multiple currencies on a daily basis, whilst bitcoin was promised to solve this problem. Thus, I want to solve global payments, powered by Bitcoin. In my "free" time - semi-pro drummer & full time metalhead

Financial services are a critical enabler for economic development and the creation of fairer societies. They have the power to create a new world order in which everyone, irrespective of where and how they are born, can equally thrive. Financial services today are broken and fall short on their promise. My drive is to bring disruptive innovation to the industry and build a friction-less and seamless banking stack so that everyone can have fulfilling lives.
