  • Pigzbe is not your traditional piggy-bank, this London-based FinTech company have created the ‘piggy-wallet’

 

  • The digital piggy-wallet app aims to help children learn about earning, saving and spending money in a fun interactive way

 

  • The app is powered by its own family-friendly cryptocurrency called Wollo and turns gifting and saving into a game

 

  • Families can reward children and transfer as little as 1p between one another globally, and within seconds

 

  • The game hopes to stimulate children into valuing money and developing good money habits

 

  • Pigzbe will also launch a payments card connected to the app, which will enable
    families to spend their Wollo in multiple currencies

 

  • CEO of Pigzbe, Filippo Yacob (the man behind the Zuckerberg-backed coding toy Cubetto) said: “Learning about money early is key to developing positive financial habits, but it will be impossible to do in an increasingly cashless society, and with current banking products… Families today are globalised. It is common to have grandparents, uncles and aunts living in separate countries. They should all be able to partake in the “piggy-banking”

 

  • Jon Marshall, Chief Experience Officer, added: “What really excites me personally about Pigzbe is the combination of the Internet of Things (IoT), gaming, and teaching kids about something, in this case, digital money, saving, microfinance and the potential of cryptocurrencies, which is something everyone is going to have to learn about… Many people don’t understand blockchain or cryptocurrency, and the reality is that we probably don’t need to understand it, we just need to understand the benefits.”
