Remitsy

Remitsy is a next-generation payments platform for international trade, powered by the blockchain. Using it, businesses can send payments to their international suppliers at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods, arriving in hours instead of days.

By removing the friction associated with cross-currency transactions, both the sender and receiver can operate in their preferred local currency. And unlike the majority of existing solutions, our pricing is transparent so the user knows exactly how much their payments are costing.

Remitsy are also hiring for a Lead Fullstack Web Developer (with technologies including Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Javascript, HTML5, and CSS). More details at: https://angel.co/remitsy/jobs/80827-lead-web-developer-full-stack.

My Artsphere There have never been so many art lovers, so many artists pushed out of school and so few movements, groups or salons to support them. Art is one of the only sectors in which technology still has not brought more transparency and meritocracy. My Artsphere aims to be the 21st century online art salon for young artists.

As a first step, they are currently developing a prototype of a social network on which young artists can exchange with their existing network but also find like-minded artists and receive content dedicated to young & emerging artists. They have a big vision for My Artsphere and a strong artist and art professionals community supporting them. Their network, events, catalogue and kickstarter campaign have all demonstrated the traction for such an innovative and creative online tool.
