WP Hosting Customer Spotlight: Amber
WP Hosting spoke to Ryan Neale of Amber, a startup helping people prepare for a world where assets and currencies have become digital.
Amber is an app that lets you swap your spare change for Bitcoin and other digital assets. It doesn’t have to be a big investment either as you can commit as little as 50c a day.
As Amber describe it; “the spare change from each of your transactions is automatically converted into Bitcoin and Ethereum — like a digital piggy bank.”
Amber was founded exactly a year ago by Aleksandar Svetski and Chantelle de la Rey and are headquartered in Brisbane.
A quick intro: who are you and what’s your background?
My name is Ryan Neale; I work between front-end web development, design, and marketing at Amber. I’ve been working across software startups since I was 17, mostly in product design oriented roles.
Tell us about Amber – what is it about and how did you get started?
Amber is a digital currency exchange, wallet and round-up app – all in the palm of your hand. Our mission is to make digital currencies easy, for everyday people. I joined the team in September as I’ve known Aleks (Founder, CEO) through the startup community for a few years.
Who is your target market and how do you differentiate from your competitors?
Our target market is people who are interested in purchasing cryptocurrencies but don’t know how to buy, how much to buy or when to buy. We allow the average person to get involved, without risking lots of money, and without having to set up three different accounts or 5 different apps.
Tell us about your website: was it designed and built internally or did you get help?
I designed and built the website internally. Initially, the site was designed using word press templates, but over time I’ve re-written all the pages from scratch to allow for more customization.
