There is a new digital currency app in town and it is giving ZeroBlock a run for the money. A California startup, Blockstreet has released its first iOS application, providing everything bitcoin and altcoin. Currently in Alpha stages, the application made its debut in the App Store last week, giving users access to Bitcoin and Altcoin prices, market cap, news and information, along with a fully functional currency calculator. While most other applications just offer information on Bitcoin, Blockstreet provides up-to-the-minute information on everything happening in the world of digital currency.
Blockstreet CEO Ken Feldman runs the company from a Bitcoin incubation space called Bitropolis in Santa Monica. Their aim is to be the mobile Wall Street of the crypto community, and through Feldman’s leadership as a successful serial entrepreneur, Blockstreet is focused on placing the entire marketplace in the palm of your hand. Feldman has a lot of experience in the Bitcoin and Altcoin space and has launched companies in telecom, aerospace and media industries.
Users who download Blockstreet will enjoy the application’s easy-to-use interface and functionality. Blockstreet has the ability to keep users apprised of all trending digital currency news, market cap and information from the world’s leading exchanges. In addition, the application also features a cryptocurrency calculator that easily and accurately calculates rates from fiat-to-crypto. Users can view over a dozen different currencies including Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin across a variety of exchanges, and every option is customizable to the user’s preference. The initial launch of this free application has been very successful and due to its feature rich interface, Blockstreet gives investors and enthusiasts a new and exciting look into the world of digital currency.
“Cryptocurrency is a burgeoning industry, and the demand for more information continues to increase,” Feldman stated. “There are other apps, but many just focus on Bitcoin, aren’t easy to use, or [are] built as a side project by a developer and have little ongoing support. We are hyper-focused on giving users the best possible tools for them to understand the entire marketplace and make smart decisions.”
Blockstreet is currently rolling out the app to Bitcoin and Altcoin enthusiasts, who are encouraged to send their feedback in order to further improve the user experience. Going forward, the company plans on introducing new features regularly, although none have been specified as of yet. Blockstreet will even name the feature after the user who made the suggestion, which shows just how much faith the company has in the community.
“The Bitcoin and Altcoin communities are very supportive and we just wanted to create an application that is all about the user experience,” the company said in a recent press release. “Users by and large need to access data on the go, which is why we created Blockstreet to meet their cryptocurrency needs wherever they are.”
The iOS app is currently available for free via the App Store with an Android version currently in development. Users can be notified when an Android version is available by visiting the Blockstreet website. http://www.blockstreet.info
