2020 is getting closer! This is a great time to remember the important moments of 2019 for the SmartCash team and the whole community. At the moment, SmartCash has been continuously developing for 2,5 years as a cryptocurrency created for daily payments and every step of the team is aimed at developing several important directions at the same time: increasing recognition, community growth, integrations, development of our own tools and, of course, listing on exchanges.
This year the team introduced several tools that made it even easier to use the cryptocurrency: SmartCash payment plugin for WooCommerce, a service for sending SMART by Email, SMS and links, SmartShift, and many others! (full list at the end of the article). Scheduled payments, which are available to everyone through a Web Wallet, have become a particularly attractive feature. With it you can easily pay for your subscriptions or memberships based on a fiat amount of SmartCash every month. The ATM Vouchers were released (for Switzerland and Portugal), which allows users to quickly exchange their coins for Euro or CHF and then cash out these funds in one of the ATM`s, BitC or Bitugax ATM`s in Switzerland and Portugal respectively.
