Bankify is a company that started out with a simple mission – that want to make finance fun. Hai Ta says “As the name suggests, we aim to gamify financial elements to make it fun and simple. At the moment we have two functionalities: Goal saving and Cost splitting. We are also developing the much-wanted Receipt scanner functionality, which will be a game changer. The goal of the app is to make money management more engaging to people, so that they can improve their financial life!
Blinky recently launched in Finland and Ireland.
Hai goes on to say
As we live in a consumerist world, it is important for the youth to do manage their money better. Youngsters can improve their financial life drastically if they have a tool to do shared finance and save up for goals. However, financing is perceived as boring. Banks have had a tough time keeping the retention of the young demographic. For that reason, we developed an app called Blinky – Fun finance. This is a disruptive approach to make finance more appealing (We wrote a blog on Why finance should be fun).
At the moment, there are two functionalities: Cost splitting and Goal saving. With Cost splitting, Blinky quickens the whole process of calculating each person’s share and requesting the money. We all know how much of a pain it is to ask your friend for a long-overdue debt. And when saving for goals, Blinky helps keep track of the progress by breaking it down to actionable plan and making a game out of it.
