Project Description

We are building a product that works like a checking account in crypto. It will store users’ money in our protocol, help them earn interest, and facilitates recurring subscriptions (sending a fixed amount of money every month to merchants without approval each time.).

The current solutions allow only one-time payments with an expiry date post which the user has to manually subscribe again. The churn caused due to this process for SaaS businesses is huge. And payment reminders don’t work well in our experience having run a SaaS business ourselves previously. The ideal product is Wagsi where users give permission once to our contract and our contract automatically transfers the subscription amount to the merchant every month.

In the future, we are aiming to build an ecosystem around WAGSI. Two notable areas that we are aiming to target are-

  1. Building a product that will allow crypto experts to build a smallcase i.e. a basket of crypto tokens that reflects an idea/strategy. They can further share these strategies with users who can opt-in by paying a fixed subscription amount every month. For the users, they will be able to buy tokens with just 2-clicks.
  2. Building decentralized Patreon/Shutterstock to help creators earn 100% of the revenue they make with instant payouts through WAGSI.
