lipa wants to change the world. Our app is an alternative to traditional payment systems.

Sound money

We want fair money and fair payments for all - Bitcoin makes it possible: it is decentralized and transparent, money from people for people.

Bitcoin is sound money and we are convinced that it will become accepted as a means of payment.

Fair business

We want to reduce fees and transaction costs for transactions and make them transparent at all times. People who use lipa always have their money with them - not at a bank or financial institution. And not in the form of cash either.

High independence

We want the money to belong to the people. That’s why at lipa every user owns their own bitcoin keys (non-custodial wallet).

«The nature of Bitcoin is such that after the release of version 0.1, the core design was set in stone for the rest of its life.» Satoshi Nakamoto

History of lipa

In 2020, we three co-founders decided to start a crypto startup. We quickly realized that we could only stand behind one currency: Bitcoin.

At the Diginlab 2021 Fundraising Academy, we sharpened our vision and mission: our vision is a fair world financial system. Our mission to make fair payments simple and accessible to all. That’s how lipa was born.
