Xapo and Taringa! launch largest bitcoin integration

April 21, 2015

Xapo is proud to partner with social media powerhouse Taringa! and announce the largest bitcoin integration on any platform to date.

Taringa! is the largest social network created in Latin America, with over 75 million users. By introducing bitcoin to Taringa!’s platform, top content creators can now earn bitcoin through Taringa!’s Revenue Sharing Program, rewarding users who bring quality content to Taringa!

In addition to the Revenue Sharing Program, Taringa!’s entire user base will be given bits each day to share and earn, adding value to Taringa!’s existing reputation system, and further supporting content creators. The platform is supported by a simple one-click integration with Xapo’s secure bitcoin wallet.

With 300,000 Taringa! users already giving around a million points each day on the network, the partnership has the potential to quadruple the current number of bitcoin transactions worldwide.

Using bitcoin to power digital currency on Taringa!’s platform will have a huge impact on its user base, who – despite having access to smart phones and internet – are largely under-banked. The partnership with Taringa! is also an opportunity to introduce millions of people across the globe to the benefits of bitcoin, such as free cross-border transfers, micropayments/social tipping, and more.

Xapo’s partnership with Taringa! implements the largest bitcoin integration the community has yet to see and is a historic moment for both bitcoin and social media.
