Thanks for checking out my post, I wanted to speak briefly about an upcoming company I’m currently apart of which will be adding Peercoin to its system. First though I wanted to introduce myself, my name is Ryan Haidinger, I am the Founder & CEO of AuraWallet. We are a small startup based in San Jose, California (currently about 6 employees), and we are developing an Digital Currency Payment Processor for BTC, LTC and now PPC (with other currencies in the future). Our primary focus on our platform will be the following:
Buy and Sell cryptocurrencies (currently only available from USD bank accounts).
Hosted Wallet interface (with ability to use cold storage if needed)
Full Service Merchant Support (create invoices, integrate with shopping cart software, use at your local business through our POS system, or online).
Mobile Application available on iPhone, Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry to manage your transactions, check the latest pricing and send/receive
Our goal is to create an feature-rich platform that allows consumers and merchants to transact, use and manage their digital currency. We see digital currency as a disruptive force against the traditional payments and commerce marketplace, in which we believe needs a drastic update.
We’ve also been spending the past month hosting seminars and meeting with merchants to explain the benefit of accepting digital currency. As of today, we have 61 merchants signed on (mostly in California and Georgia), that include: Restaurants, Dry Cleaners, Car Washes, Deli’s, and a few select online stores such as a Furniture Company, Video Game, and Clothing Outlet. The great thing about our platform is that, when we add new currency types to our platform, the merchants can automatically start accepting them, without doing any other work from their end.
For us, in order to grow Digital Currency, there needs to be an strong layer of infrastructure that makes it incredibly simple for anybody (be they consumer or merchants), access digital currency, and use it at a place of business.

Our current development goal is to complete the entire platform by early Q2, with beta invites in mid Q1 of 2014. AuraWallet Inc. is a registered and regulated member of the FinCEN, as a licensed money transmitter.
Thank you for reading, and look forward to helping the community.
