Pay your friends the alternative way
Pine is a bitcoin app for sending and receiving money among your friends and family. It looks like a messaging app but instead of sending messages you are sending bitcoin.
Designed for you.
And a billion others
Pine’s messenger-like design makes it instantly familiar to use for anyone who has used a messaging app such as WhatsApp or Messenger.
Pine will show numbers and dates in the format you expect. Pine also supports hundreds of local currencies for displaying exchange rates and soon also languages.
Add your contacts using their Pine addresses, which are similar to email addresses. Get an @pine.pm address or host your own server with your own domain.
Bitcoin does not have any borders. Transact freely with anyone anywhere in the world – they don't even need to use Pine, as long as it's bitcoin.
Payments the way
Decentralized and open
Just like bitcoin, Pine is designed to be open and decentralized. The app and server software are open-source and you can host your own Pine server with your own domain if you prefer.
Full control and ownership
Your keys, your bitcoin. Only you are in control of your funds stored with Pine. We have no access to your private keys or bitcoins in any way.
Run your own bitcoin node
You can run your own bitcoin node so you can broadcast and validate transactions without having to trust anyone. Running your own node can also improve your privacy by not revealing what transactions you are interested in.
Protected using your biometrics
By signing transactions with Touch/Face ID, you are the only one who can spend your funds. This prevents unauthorized payments if your phone would end up in the wrong hands.
