HandCash is a crypto company based in Madrid, Spain. HandCash builds products and services aimed to jumpstart the Metaverse economy through frictionless payments and persistent digital items embedded in apps, games, websites and virtual worlds. It is best known for its wallet mobile app of the same name.
The main feature of HandCash is being able to connect your wallet with all sorts of apps and games. This allows you to seamlessly pay or earn, and collect and trade NFTSs on compatible apps, games, websites and virtual worlds.
Your HandCash Account is a combination of two different secret keys held by two independent companies for your convenience, this way you don't have to store them yourself while still retaining exclusive access to your funds. As long as you keep your credentials updated, you will be able to access your HandCash Account and funds.
Yes, you can. Simply go to the Account section, and tap on Personal information. You can change your credentials from there.
Every HandCash Account can have up to 5 $handles associated to it, although each of them needs a different email address associated to it.
All apps publicly available for HandCash users will appear on our Apps & Games section of the website. If you're an Android or Web App user, you'll find a link to the App Gallery inside the Apps section of the app. On iOS, you'll need to access it through your web browser aT https://handcash.io/gallery
Go to the SDK section of our website to get started! Integrating payments and NFTs is super easy, with no previous knowledge on Bitcoin or Blockchain required. When you're ready to launch, submit your app for review and after being approved it'll appear on our Apps & Games section.
Just like you can sign up on a lot of websites and apps with your Google or Facebook account, your HandCash account also allows you to sign up and log into compatible apps, games and websites. Those apps will then be able to charge money straight from your wallet so you do not have to manually confirm every payment. Also, the apps will know where to pay you when you earn money on them.
The most convenient way is to just top-up with a credit or debit card - it takes under a minute to do and you can use the money right away! There are however three other ways for you to increase your balance. First, you can receive payments from other HandCash users through your user $handle. Second, other BSV apps can send you money through your Paymail address. And lastly, using your legacy BSV address or QR code address.
Currently, only BSV payments are processed by HandCash, so if you send money from or to a BTC or BCH address (other flavors of Bitcoin), it will most probably result in the loss of funds.
Your first US$60 in top-ups only require you to give us your full name and birth date. If you want to top-up more than that, we will require you to go through a very easy and convenient KYC (know your customer) process where you will have to identify yourself with legal documentation and a portrait picture. And if you reach the limits of the standard KYC level, you will be presented with a questionaire about the source of your funds.
We are adding more regions regularly, but the current list is as follows: United States of America (except the States of New York, Minnessota, Alaska and Hawaii), Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Australia, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Philippines and Japan.
At the time you can only send your money to another BSV address, which can also be the address of a cryptocurrency exchange. We are working on cash-outs so you can send your money directly to your bank account.
HandCash is a non-custodial cryptocurrency service, so we technically do not hold your money and we are incapable of accessing it without your permission. Your funds are safe only as long as you keep your credentials updated.
Although HandCash is a very secure non-custodial cryptocurrency service, we do not recommend you storing more than what you would carry in your physical wallet, enough for you to play games and use it for shopping online. The reason is we do not hold any banking license therefore your money is not covered by insurance.
HandCash is Keyless (does not require users to store a traditional Bitcoin seed or 'twelve words') thanks to its proprietary system based on Threshold Signatures. This allows us to offer a non-custodial service while making it easier for every user to access their funds without having to safeguard a password. The full key never gets to exist, it's a system based on partial signatures by different trustholders.
HandCash is a cryptocurrency service that currently uses BSV as the main currency. BSV's value changes against other currencies according to market laws.
As a non-custodial service, you will be required to pay for your network fees on every transaction. They are so small you won't notice, normally less than $0.0005 per transaction. We make sure you always pay the lowest fee accepted by the miners (the distributed server farms that run the network).
The unique thing about HandCash versus other crypto apps is that it finally allows people to do something useful with crypto, instead of just trading it with expectations of making some money. Connect your wallet to all kinds of apps and games to spend and earn directly, or collect and trade the coolest NFTs out there.
Despite what you might read and hear out there, nothing you do in crypto is anonymous - although it is normally very private. We are very serious about your privacy so we've made it much more difficult to track by looking at your transactions from blockchain explorers. Despite this, be aware that we keep transaction records ourselves for security and convenience.
