Pigzbe – the piggy wallet powered by cryptocurrency nears ICO

A revolutionary new way to send money between families, created by Forbes 30 Under 30 entrepreneur Filippo Yacob and utilising a new cryptocurrency – Wollo (WLO) – will launch this month with an ICO also on the horizon.Yacob, the man behind coding toy Cubetto, has created the Pigzbe piggy wallet, which pairs a physical device with an app to turn gifting and saving into a game.The technology allows families to transfer as little as one cent (or equivalent) between one another globally, and within seconds, making transactions completely borderless. This is impossible using traditional financial systems and has only been made possible through blockchain technology.Pigzbe is powered by family-friendly cryptocurrency Wollo (WLO), which has been created on the Stellar (XML) network, making Pigzbe one of the first blockchain systems with truly mainstream appeal.Pre-sales will be live on pigzbe.com from 25th April and its ICO will run for one week from 11 June 2018 until 18 June 2018.The team behind WLO include some of the most recognised global names in design, gaming, crypto, finance and technology. As a composite, the senior team have experience from among the most innovative and successful companies in the world including Apple, IBM and NASA.CEO and founder Yacobis also the creator of Cubetto, the most heavily crowd-funded ed-tech project in Kickstarter’s history ($1.6m). Pigzbe’s Head of Product is Jon Marshall, of Kano renown and it has Yannick Naud (Bank Audi Suisse and AMR) as a special economic advisor.In creating a game kids will love, Pigzbe has Ian McGregor as lead software developer, who has experience with the likes of Pokemon Go, Nike and Google and Matt Brown as Design Interaction Lead, who spent five years in the experimental interface design department at Apple in Cupertino.The Pigzbe White Paper sets out the economic model proposed for Pigzbe, whereby a finite number of public tokens are issued via pre-sale/ICO and within the Pigzbe piggy wallets themselves. These can be spent via an associated payment card (via instant trade to fiat currency through a partnered exchange) and these same coins bought by family members via these same exchanges. The lack of new token creation will prevent inflation.In its projections, Pigzbe is targeting 1m units in circulation within three years.
