Happy New Year! It's 2023 already – time sure does fly! We hope this year is treating you well.

To start off, we have some exciting news! Our team has been hard at work bringing a refreshed, revitalised, and upgraded experience with all the bells and whistles. So, grab a cup of your favourite beverage, put your feet up, and get ready to take a sneak peek at what we've been up to!

📍 What’s new?

Goodbye tiiik👋. Hello Stables!

We're excited to announce our new name: Stables. Our new logo, featuring three coins, symbolises our commitment to stablecoins. This rebranding reflects our focus and the value we want to bring to our users.

Although our name has changed, our team is still the same. We remain passionate and dedicated to our mission. Here's to the new chapter! 🥂

Alpha mobile app is imminent📱

We're thrilled to announce the alpha launch of our mobile app on both iOS and Android! Following the launch of our web app, we received a lot of positive feedback from our users and high demand for mobile compatibility. So starting early February, Australians will be able to download our app from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, with many more countries coming soon.

With this version of the app, you'll be able to:

  • Buy USDC with AUD (more fiat pairs coming soon)
  • Sell USDC for AUD  (more fiat pairs coming soon)
  • Fund your account with USDC, USDT and BUSD on the Ethereum network (more networks coming soon!)
  • Send USDC to your friends and family
  • Be part of our exclusive OG squad!

Stablecoin-powered cards are coming 💳

We’re thrilled to announce that the backend work for card payments has been completed 🥳 Our focus over the next 3 months will be on card payments, which we’ll incorporate into our beta launch. Our stablecoin-powered card will be rolled out in two phases:

  • The first release will enable online payments (think Amazon shopping),
  • The second release will allow in-store purchases through Google Pay and Apple Wallet.

Initially, the card will be available to residents of Australia, but we’ll be bringing it to as many countries as possible. If you’re outside of Australia and would like to get the card sooner, let us know which country you think we should roll out to next.

Early access to stablecoin payment

Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for some exciting partnership announcements coming very soon 👀
