Ramp Updates

Ramp is the best way to join the decentralised revolution. We bridge your bank and boring government-bucks 💷 to new shiny internet money 🌈 https://ramp.network/ 🚀

Hello, Ramp fam!
How is the new year treating you? We’re entering 2019 with the highest of spirits! Our app is completed and we can’t wait to see your reaction. You’ll have a chance to try it next week in London👇, but before that let us share some of our optimism and recap on what happened last few months.
It’s ready! 🚀
There were blood and tears along the way, but as promised Swaps is ready for action. So again, what is it exactly? 🤔
It’s kinda like like 0x protocol, but it will work with your bank. It’s also a bit like your regular crypto exchange, but without the Mt.Gox factor and Coinbase handicaps. In a way, it’s also like localbitcoins, except for the getting stabbed with a knife in a back alley part.
Why use it? Ramp Swaps allows you to securely buy or sell Ethereum-based assets, such as ETH and ERC-20 tokens for fiat currencies. It’s fast, it’s free and peer to peer. But most importantly it proves that banking and blockchain can work together. Open financial systems just got very real 😎

Happy birthday! 🎉
It’s hard to believe, but Ramp is now 1 year old. This amazing journey proved to be as challenging, as it is rewarding 🙏
Launching our first product wouldn’t be possible without those inspiring, dedicated people we met on the way - our supporters, friends, investors, advisors, but most importantly our team members. See, it’s them here. Say hi! 👋

One step closer
Great news! 🎉 Ramp scored first place in Poland to apply for AISP registration, which allows registered entities to access all banks and payments institutions in the European Union to obtain read access to consenting users’ payment accounts. It’s a major milestone and the team did the most amazing job. Here’s our proud attorney-at-law posing with the Polish Financial Supervision Authority. 👏

Roadshow starts now
You heard correctly, we’re taking Ramp Swaps to you. We’ll talk about open banking and blockchain, atomic swaps and smart contract, technological advancement in the field and resulting legal dilemmas, but most importantly we’ll show you the workings of our app.
First stop - London! So take your laptop and meet us on January 16th, 7PM! 💃
