About Solstice Pay
The world of technology is full of walled gardens and closed ecosystems. The modern payments industry is an excellent example. If you want to pay your friends in anything other than cash, chances are you'll both have to agree to use a platform owned by a big tech company. You'll have to hand your money to them, you're forced to use whatever app they want you to use, and you can only pray that they won't terminate your account without warning. It happens more often than you might expect!
Cryptocurrencies promised a new solution. But unless you're a total nerd, they're immensely complicated! You've got your own life, and you're too busy to learn how decentralized consensus works.
Solstice Pay is a social payments app designed for you and your friends. It's totally free to use and takes care of all the complex tech so that you don't have to worry about it. Sending and receiving money is just as simple as it is on alternatives like Venmo and Cash App, but this time you're in control.
Who builds Solstice Pay?

Inga Wei's combination of software expertise and graphic design talent makes her the brain behind Solstice Pay's UI and UX. She sees a future where blockchain is an implementation detail, not required learning material.
Justin Torre is a software developer with a passion for building cool tech and sharing it with the world. He sees incredible potential in the web3 space and is eager to build tools that make it accessible for a wider audience.
