Card Testing With Ka.app Users, Marketing & Team Expansion

by Pat

Content Manager

We’re kicking off May with exciting work in progress and growth in our community. Several tests are ongoing; enhancements are underway; marketing initiatives were successful; and we’re expanding our team, too. We’re keen to tell you more, so let’s dive right in.

Debit Card Testing with Select Ka.app Users

Some of our Kastians are testing the Ka. Debit Card in real-world scenarios, and we’ve been getting tons of positive reviews so far! At the moment, we’re still conducting the necessary optimizations to ensure the card experience is of the highest quality before its official release.

We’re excited for the official roll out as the card will make it easier for you to spend crypto (online and in physical stores). Whether you’re buying a cup of coffee, booking a trip, dining out with friends, buying your groceries, or grabbing a gift for someone you love, the Ka. Debit Card will be your reliable companion.

Follow us on X to read some Ka. card feedback from our early users and to get more updates about when it will be released.

Card Top Up Testing

The flow for topping up your wallet with a debit/credit card is done, and it’s going through internal testing. This will make adding euros (EUR) to your Ka.app account much quicker and more convenient compared to doing a bank transfer.

As mentioned in our Q1 progress update, at the moment, you can add EUR into your wallet by depositing EUR via IBAN or depositing crypto from an external wallet and then converting to EUR. We’ll keep you posted for more updates.

Google Login & Signup

We’re still refining the Google account login and signup flow with additional tests to ensure that you can access our web app much more efficiently. As previously mentioned, this will remove the need to manually input a user’s email address and password when signing up or logging in on Ka.app.

Website Optimization

Our website is going through a series of enhancements to improve user experience, boost conversion rates, provide as much value as possible to our users, and align our content with our audience’s interests and preferences.

Continuous research, A/B tests, data gathering, and analyses are ongoing for full-scale optimization.

Application Component Enhancements

We’re continuing to make improvements to the set of components that we used in our web app without altering its external behavior. This will enhance the consistency in how our components operate and appear across Ka.app, which can improve user experience by making it more predictable and easier to navigate. It can also streamline the development process by reducing redundancy and simplifying maintenance tasks.

Team Expansion

Yes, our team is growing! We recently onboarded new key members, and we are still hiring across all departments. If you or someone you know are highly skilled and interested in becoming part of Ka.app, connect with us on LinkedIn to see our job postings and send your applications.

Marketing Initiatives

  • $500 Bitcoin Halving Giveaway

Did you join our Bitcoin (BTC) halving giveaway? It successfully ran from April 19-25, 2024, with a lot of participants who converted a minimum of $10 worth of any currency in the app to BTC. One lucky winner received $500 worth of BTC in their wallet, so if that’s you, congratulations!

We’d also like to thank everyone who participated. Stay tuned on X for more giveaways!

  • Telegram AMA with $250 Prize Pool

Our Telegram Ask Me Anything (AMA) session with Marketing Manager Mathieu Sylvain was another hit! It was held on April 25, 2024, with over 500 questions submitted. We gave away $250 worth of KASTA tokens, split between five participants.

It was so much fun, and we’re thinking of doing more of these soon! Be sure to join our Telegram channel for potential AMA announcements. Thanks to everyone who sent their questions, and congrats to everyone who won!

Final Thoughts

We're making significant strides in our goals and developments, and while there's still work to be done, our collective efforts are clearly moving us in the right direction. Like we always say, thanks so much for your continued support, and truly, your contributions are vital to our growth and success. See you on the next progress update!
