CoinGateCoinGate

CoinGate 2017 Roadmap2016 was a great year for the whole cryptocurrency community, including us, CoinGate. We have introduced a bunch of updates and new features to our platform, and we are really pleased with the results!

Here are 10 things we did with CoinGate last year, in no particular order:

  1. two new localizations implemented (Russian and Lithuanian);
  2. option to set invoice time manually implemented with the aim to reduce the number of late payments and expired orders (works only when receive currency is set to BTC);
  3. automatic refund form implemented for overpaid orders (see picture on the left);
  4. number of plugins and extensions for eCommerce platforms increased to 9 by adding Magento 2, OpenCart, WooCommerce, WHMCS, VirtueMart, ZenCart;
  5. Point-of-Sale apps built for Android and iOS devices;
  6. additional tools for developers created: Ruby Gem, OmniPay, CoinGate PHP;
  7. CoinGate Blog finally launched;
  8. donations with Bitcoin implemented for two non-profit organizations;
  9. security of our platform improved in all regards;
  10. recognized by the Reddit community as one of the best payment processors price-wise, because of the absence of hidden fees in our conversion rates from fiat currency to Bitcoin.

What to look forward to at CoinGate in 2017?

The year 2016 was huge for us, but the upcoming 2017 seems just as promising. So, what is coming next? We already have a roadmap laid out for the first quarter of 2017, but it is still just bits and pieces of what awaits. We are really excited! Here it goes:

And this is just a sneak peak of what is coming. Again, we hope that 2016 was as good a year as it was for us, and we wish you an even more successful 2017!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
