After extensive one-year trial and testing period, Silverbank will be launched internationally Jan 1st, 2012. Beginning this date, it is possible to sign up as a customer from anywhere in the world using any bank account. Signing up and using the service is as intuitive as ever.
The new feature will be the transfer of silver from an account to another. It will be possible to transfer from your own account to another, and also to somebody else’s account, if only you know the account number. No rollback is possible.
The truly revolutionary feature, inspired by Dwolla, is the ability to send silver-denominated transfers to anyone in the world, including the ones not yet in possession of a Silverbank account. We intend to accomplish this by enabling the sending of a ”digital check” to email address, Facebook address, mobile phone, etc. Upon clicking the link / (typing the redemption code) , the recipient can confirm and finalize the transaction to her Silverbank account. If there is no account yet, it will be created in the process. Unredeemed transfers will expire automatically.
As always, we are quite open about our future. This is for the good of mankind and we don’t care so much if competitors beat us in execution. It just means that a good service will reach the world sooner =) We accept all comments, suggestions and help in the comment section of this blog post. Thank you,
