The platform allows users to automatically invest their replacement costs from the daily purchases of credit or debit cards in a series of cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin core (BTC), ethereum (ETH), litecoin (LTC) and bitcoin cash (BCH ). Round off transactions from normal spending to the nearest dollar and invest in the cryptocurrency chosen by users.
For security reasons, Bundil does not hold any user fiat or cryptocurrency, but uses the Coinbase exchange to handle all transactions. It also allows users to monitor the growth of their portfolio and manage all positions without leaving the app. Your rate plans start at only $ 2 a month.
Bundil's founder, Dmitri Love, went on ABC's Shark Tank during the last episode of the show aired on Sunday October 21st and presented the app.
Kevin O & # 39; Leary takes a big bite

"I thought, man, you know, anyone trying to invest in cryptocurrency has to go through all these steps to try and figure out how to buy it, and I thought there might be an easier way to do it."
Love asked $ 100,000 in exchange for 10 percent of the adventure at the start. Kevin O & # 39; Leary offered him the requested sum, but for the strong 50% owned by the startup. Love replied that "50 percent is quite a bit", but reluctantly agreed to agree with the lone shark because the others were not interested in making contrary offers.
Obviously this is not the first time that sharks have heard of cryptocurrency. Mark Cuban, who doubted that central banks would allow Bitcoin to grow in 2014, has become much more open to the idea recently, even suggesting that his NBA team will sell cryptography tickets. Also the investor of cryptocurrency Angelo and civic founder Vinny Lingham has been regularly in the South African version of the show.
