It’s finally here! From today, the much-anticipated Android app is live and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
Our new Android app, which offers the same core features as its existing highly-popular iOS version, enables customers to easily sign up, make free and instant GBP bank transfers and Open Banking top ups in British pounds, and start buying Bitcoin in just minutes. Thanks to our popular Bitcoin Jar product, customers will also be able to get rewarded for holding their Bitcoin
“After the initial launch of the Mode app on iOS, it quickly became apparent that we needed to release an Android version as soon as possible to satisfy the untapped demand from retail investors for our easy-to-use Bitcoin product. For the past few months, the engineering and design teams have been working really hard to deliver an experience that feels special on Android, yet still unmistakably Mode. We’re excited that the time has finally come, and we couldn’t be happier to be able to finally bring the Mode experience to everyone.” said Janis Legler, Chief Product Officer at Mode.
To date, we have launched the UK’s easiest and fastest way to buy, hold and grow Bitcoin, all in one place. Our app, which saw its customer numbers grow by 500% from August to December and ranked no2 in the App Store’s UK finance category, has proven highly popular amongst first-time Bitcoin investors, as the app’s simplicity and easy-of-use makes it perfect for those starting out their cryptocurrency journey.
“Releasing the Android app is a very exciting milestone for the development and expansion of Mode. We have estimated that Android users represent more than half of the cryptocurrency population, presenting a much wider market size to scale and the opportunity to significantly accelerate our user growth. Today marks another key step in our mission to provide investors with access to next-generation Bitcoin products.” said Jonathan Rowland, Executive Chairman at Mode.
January was another record-breaking month for us in terms of Bitcoin traded on Mode, with volumes growing by more than 130% compared to December 2020. Since August, Mode’s trading volumes have grown 110% month-on-month.
To celebrate the launch of Android, we are increasing our referral program bonus from £10 to £20 for 30 days, which means users on both Android and iOS can invite their friends to Mode and earn £20 worth of Bitcoin each. T&Cs apply and are available via https://modeapp.com/referral-program-terms/.
