A First Look at BankSimple

simple guilloche

We’ve been very cautious on our blog and website about talking about what we’ve been building. Instead, we’ve focused on our vision. Today that is changing: Below is a first public sneak peek of BankSimple. We think it’s far more powerful to show than tell.

And now we are ready to show. We’ve been testing the product for a few months now, and it has been awesome. The product isn’t finished. It will never be finished. We’re constantly improving. But we’ve now reached the point where we’ve learned as much as possible from testing internally and in a few weeks we’ll be shipping cards to our first real customers.

This is only the beginning, but it is a tremendous step forward for our company. We will be sharing more important updates with you soon, but in the meantime, we hope that you enjoy this first look at our product – we’d love to hear your feedback.
