The Company has concluded its initial period of rigorous testing in partnership with early users of the App and will be launching an upgraded user interface and new connectivity features in Q1 2022, to support enhanced usability, brand awareness and scalability as new blockchain infrastructure is integrated over the next 12 months.
Wellfield's vision for the MoneyClip app ("MoneyClip" or the "App"), is to build it into the ultimate everyday financial application powered by blockchain, giving consumers easy access to, and greater control over their money by harnessing the full value and flexibility offered by decentralized finance ("DeFi").
The Company has also initiated an engagement program that is dually focused on the expansion of the App's user base and its evolution from a peer-to-peer (P2P) payment app to a broader financial app, powered by blockchain infrastructure.
MoneyClip has launched a new website at moneyclip.io.
VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 24, 2021 /CNW/ - Wellfield Technologies Inc. (TSXV: WFLD) (the "Company" or "Wellfield"), is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, MoneyClip Inc. has launched an intensive engagement program, focused on growing its user base and signing retail partners as it prepares for the introduction of additional functionality through 2022.
MoneyClip is available to download in Canada, for iOS and Android users. The App currently offers P2P payment functionality, and Wellfield has a multi-year plan to add functionality that is aimed at making MoneyClip a user's primary financial interface. Wellfield expects to offer enhanced versions of financial products and services currently available to Canadian consumers only through traditional channels, by leveraging smart contracts and other DeFi infrastructure built by the Company's Seamless brand and through partnerships and integrations with third parties in the DeFi ecosystem.
Chanan Steinhart, Founder of MoneyClip and Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer of Wellfield commented, "During our latest rounds of user research and testing we've seen a marked shift in the Gen Z demographic. As recently as this past spring, most viewed blockchain as a high risk and speculative ecosystem. Now, many see blockchain and DeFi as a legitimate global financial system that is beginning to offer the products and services their parents receive at the local branch and online, but with attractive and sustainable economic incentives, and the user experience they've come to expect as mobile native consumers. We are positioning ourselves to capture this consumer shift in banking and finance. Our vision for MoneyClip is to build a full-service financial application that is the best of all worlds - built for Canadians, adherent with local regulation, and powered by global DeFi markets to give our users complete control and flexibility over their money."
Mr. Steinhart continued, "We are building MoneyClip to make Canadians' money highly efficient and productive. To do this, we're starting off 2022 by launching new engagement efforts and executing on a development roadmap of products and services that offer better yield, no lockups, easy payments, fair loans, and bulletproof security – all powered by DeFi and blockchain infrastructure. In 2021 the core blockchain infrastructure needed to support these features did not exist, but thanks to Wellfield's Seamless branded IP and recent developments by other peers in the space, our vision for MoneyClip can become a reality."
Blockchain, combined with the power of the internet, has the power to reinvent the world's financial systems, moving intermediaries aside and creating a decentralized financial system that has the capacity to remove frictions and costs, improve security, and enhance trust. The advanced infrastructure required to create end to end solutions and open new avenues for decentralized financial services are only beginning to be commercialized, and just like the early internet, these networks are missing compelling applications that make the technology relevant for people's everyday lives. Today's blockchain applications focus on speculative use cases rather than offering traditional finance solutions powered by decentralized finance.
Wellfield has built MoneyClip with the vision of creating an everyday financial application powered by blockchain, that can act as a primary point for consumers to secure and utilize their money. The App currently offers P2P payment functionality, and Wellfield has a multi-year plan to integrate new blockchain infrastructure, as it becomes available, to provide consumers with access to a full range of DeFi and traditional finance services.
The solutions provided through the App are powered by decentralized protocols developed in house by the Company's wholly owned subsidiary Seamless Logic Software Ltd. ("Seamless") and other partnerships and integrations with third parties in the DeFi ecosystem.
