About the Client
Our client for Swipe App is from London, United Kingdom. Currently, he leads a game development company that is based in London. From the last three years, he has been in the virtual currency industry, and due to his vast experience, he got the idea of developing a multi-currency wallet and cryptocurrency app that supports the maximum number of currencies of the world.
He wanted one such wallet application that helps people to send and receive currency/ cryptocurrency and exchange them with low fees.
To eliminate the need of downloading multiple apps that support different currencies and cryptocurrencies, he wanted to build a single mobile app solution that supports both currencies and cryptocurrencies.
While discussing the idea with our blockchain engineer, he explained different problems that people are currently facing when they transfer and receive money from different countries of the world. He also described the problem of exchanging currency and cryptocurrency. Let’s checkout the problems that he explained us.
Till date, there is not a single multi-currency and cryptocurrency wallet app through which people can send and receive different currencies/cryptocurrencies across the world.
To send and receive money in the form of currency and cryptocurrency from different countries, people are downloading and using different applications that support multiple currencies of the world. Because of this, making/receiving international payments is a pretty time intensive process for all the people worldwide.
If you regularly convert money between currencies and cryptocurrencies, you know how expensive the currency exchange fees can be. There are a lot of currency exchanger apps that claim to charge low exchange fees, but all of them have the hidden charges and fees that they take while converting.
Whether you are a traveler, a student studying abroad or simply remitting money for business purposes, you might be paying high amount of currency exchange fees, losing your big amount of money.
Have you ever been in the situation when you have currency or cryptocurrency in your wallet, but do not have sufficient money in your bank account and you have to make some urgent payments?
Many times, people wanted to withdraw their wallet currency or cryptocurrency and transfer to it their bank account or anyone else bank’s account. Following this entire process manually consumes a lot of time of people, and in case of some urgency, they do not have any option. Due to unavailability of any solution or application that allows people to instantly transfer wallet money to any bank account, people follow a long and time-consuming process.
These are some of the major problems that a lot of people worldwide are facing because of the unavailability of multi-currency wallet and cryptocurrency wallet app that resolves above mentioned problems.
So, our client was looking for a multi-currency mobile wallet that
- Resolves the hassle of sending and receiving different currencies/cryptocurrencies worldwide.

Swipe – A Multi-Currency and Cryptocurrency Wallet Application That Supports Maximum Currencies of the World
First of all, our client described his whole cryptocurrency app development idea to us and explained us the solution that he wanted as a mobile wallet app. While explaining the idea, he also described the current problems people face while transferring and receiving currency online.
To get the idea about cryptocurrency wallet app, we analyzed and reviewed top crypto-wallet apps like Coinbase and Local Bitcoin that allow people to send and receive Bitcoin, Ripple, Litecoin, and other cryptocurrencies.
Considering our client’s requirements and target audience’s needs, we as blockchain application development company, delivered a multi-currency and cryptocurrency wallet app that supports both currencies and cryptocurrencies, making it easy for people to receive and transfer money worldwide.
Let’s checkout the top features of Swipe Wallet Application that Solves Different Problems of People:
1. Adding Money Through Bitcoin, Ether, Card & Bank Transfer
After comprehending various people’s problems that they face while transferring and receiving currency from various countries, we have developed a multi-currency wallet app.
In this wallet app, we have integrated a Top Up feature that allows people to add money in their swipe account with Bitcoin, Ether, Card and from their bank account to swipe account.
In the below given screenshot, you can see the “Top Up” option through which app users can top-up the Swipe account with different currencies like Bitcoin & Ether and from their bank.
After clicking on the Top Up, users will see different options like add money via Bitcoin, Ethereum, Card and Bank Transfer. Here is the screenshot, where you can see:
To add money via Bitcoin, users can directly request their friend, family member or any other swipe app user to transfer bitcoin in your swipe account. For transferring bitcoin, there is one bar-code inside the bitcoin option that bitcoin sender can scan and transfer.
To share the bar-code with the sender, users just need to tap to copy the address and share it through their email or text. Once sender transfers the bitcoin, receiver will be able to see it in his/her account under bitcoin.
Talking about another option just like Bitcoin, users can also add money through Ethereum in their swipe account. They can request their friends or any swipe account users, asking them to pay Ethereum by scanning a barcode.
For requesting Ethereum, users just need to click on the “Ethereum” button that you can see in the below given screenshot. After clicking on Ethereum, users can see a barcode that they can share with the sender through email and text.
Another option to add money in their swipe account is through “Bank Transfer” that you can see in the below given screenshot. In this option, the users need to transfer the money from their bank account to swipe account online.
Every swipe app users will have his/her own unique ID for each currency and using this id as a reference they can transfer the money in the swipe account that will be reflected under bank transfer option. Users can manage different local and international bank accounts under bank transfer option.
2. Exchange – A Simple Yet Easy Way of Exchanging Currency and Cryptocurrency
A lot of businessmen worldwide must be traveling from one country to another for the business purpose and even various students prefer to travel from one country to another for further studies, so they might be converting money between different currencies according to their needs.
For converting money in different currencies, they have to pay higher exchange fees and other hidden charges. Considering this major issue in mind, we have integrated an “Exchange” feature in the Swipe application that you can see in the below given screenshot.
With this exchange feature in the application, one can exchange their money in different currencies according to their needs. Currently, it supports more than 120 different currencies from all around the world, ranging from the US Dollar to the British Pound (GBP).
The Exchanger also supports cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ether, allowing users to convert cryptocurrency as well. People, who travel abroad, can find this feature extremely useful as they can easily find-out how much their currency is worth in just seconds.
For example, if any user has 1000 USD and he wants to convert it into pound, he just needs to select his currency (like USD) from the drop-down menu and enter the amount. Then he needs to select the currency in which he wants to convert (like pound) and then click on the “Exchange” button as given below in the screenshot.
With the extremely low exchange fees, users can easily convert their money into their desired currency or cryptocurrency.
3. Transferring Money Becomes Easier Like Never Before
To make online payments, sending money to friends or business partners easier, we have integrated an “Withdraw” feature in the application that you can see in the below given screenshot.
Using Withdraw feature, users can make payments and send money without any hassle. Even they can transfer money from their wallet money to any bank account anytime and anywhere. As we have already mentioned that the app also supports cryptocurrency, so one can transfer Bitcoin and Ether as well.
In the above give image, you can see that there are three different options to make payment, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bank Account. Users can easily make payment in terms of Bitcoin, Ethereum or directly into bank account. They can also add their wallet money into their bank account.
4. One-to-One Chat Option for Users
It can also be possible that a lot of users may have any confusion or query related to any feature of the application. Also, they might have any question related to adding money in the wallet, currency exchange or withdrawing money from the wallet to their bank account.
Considering this in mind, we integrated a one-to-one chat option in the application, allowing users to get in touch with the customer support team to discuss their issue or any query. In the below given screenshot, you can see how app users can communicate with any representative.
Moreover, you can also see how easily users and representative also send any image or PDF file through chat feature and communicate with each other without any hassle.
5. Maintaining “My Profile” Becomes Easier
In the application, there is an option for users to maintain their personal profile that can be easily maintained and edited by them. Every app user will have its own profile that can’t be viewed by other user of the application.
Here’s the screenshot of the “My Profile” in which you can see what type of information users need to include.
The user of the app can include personal and account details in the profile section. Moreover, they can also go through from the usage policy of the application and check verification and limits of it. The entered details will be safe and secure as other users of the app can be able to see each other’s profile information.
Challenges that we Faced While Developing This App
One of the major challenges was that our client wanted to have its own Bitcoin server instead of hosting it on any third-party server. The main reason behind it that every bitcoin wallet app has its public and private keys, but if we use any third-party server, we don’t have those private and public keys with us; however, our client wanted to keep those private and public keys with him in hard copies, ensuring more safety and security to the end-users.
After comprehending about bitcoin and its server in detail, we developed its own bitcoin server so that our client can have both private and public keys with him.
Another biggest challenge that our team faced while developing the app was the deadline of this project because our client wanted this application within one month. He said that he want to develop this app in just one month because he planned to take part in the ICO (Initial Coin Offering) that is a new financing mechanism used by enormous startups to raise millions of dollars.
Developing this app from the scratch in one month was quite challenging for blockchain app developers’ team, but, they understood how entire blockchain technology works and differentiate both cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum. Ultimately, our team developed the major part of this application in just one month.
Technologies We Used
To make our client’s dream project reality, we used many tools and services and their role were really important. Here’s the list of the technologies that our dedicated and full-time blockchain developer used:
