The team at CoinNinja is proud to launch our new Bitcoin mobile wallet today, DropBit.
We hope you all will try it out and consider making it your new go-to Bitcoin mobile wallet. A lot of the design and features were based on who we are as a company.
Who is CoinNinja?
We are a small group of developers based in Akron, Ohio with one goal… Accelerating the global adoption of Bitcoin. We believe Bitcoin, and Crypto in general, are the future of global currency. Adoption is key to this. Everyday people must start using Bitcoin to buy and sell goods. We understand this adoption will take time but if we can speed it up, just a little, we will have met our goal. The way to do this is to help everyday people (noCoiners) understand why Bitcoin is better than current fiat currencies and teach them just enough to be able to easily and securely store and transact with Bitcoin. We started meeting these goals about a year ago with a simplified block explorer and educational videos. Today we bring this all together with a secure and easy to use mobile app for IOS and Android: DropBit.
DropBit is teaching
We created DropBit to quickly teach new users about Bitcoin, before using it. Upon the initial download, there are training and educational screens to help people understand first ‘Why Bitcoin?’, and then how to use recovery words to secure their Bitcoin. These screens can be skipped for people already familiar with Bitcoin.
DropBit is simple
The DropBit app works the same as most non-custodial mobile wallets out there. Users can store, send, and receive Bitcoin right from their mobile device with no account sign up.
The biggest difference with our wallet is our proprietary DropBit feature which allows users to send Bitcoin using only the user’s contact list, or by entering a phone number.
People new to Bitcoin don’t necessarily need to know what Bitcoin addresses are or how to use them. Our app will allow you send Bitcoin by way of a phone number, while transferring Bitcoin to a receive address in the background. Unlike other services offering something similar, we never take control of your Bitcoin. DropBit makes sending Bitcoin as easy as using CashApp or Venmo while still keeping all the decentralized benefits of Bitcoin. In fact, when we’ve demonstrated DropBit to people, they often say oh ‘this is just like Venmo or Cash App for Bitcoin’. That’s a big compliment to us and exactly what we are trying to achieve – simplicity in sending money to one another.

DropBit is Sharing
Even if someone has never used, or even heard about Bitcoin, our app allows them to send and receive Bitcoin easily. Non-users will receive a text alerting them to an incoming Bitcoin transaction. Once they download the Dropbit app, they will have some Bitcoin waiting for them. This makes Dropbit the easiest way to get NoCoiners to start using Bitcoin.
We would really love to have everyone try it out. Download DropBit from the App Store or Play Store, explore the app, and tell us what you think, and how we can make this the best wallet available. We will be answering questions and taking suggestions on how to improve for the next few hours and days through this Reddit thread.
