We were first introduced to Ziglu after seeing a large number of tweets from Hoge Finance holders asking Ziglu to list them. Ziglu is a UK investment app founded in the UK. Being in the UK, and into crypto, I decided to give it a go.
Here’s how it went:
Create an account
- I actually had a problem verifying my phone number, but I got through to customer support instantly over the phone and they fixed it for me so all was good. Was very impressed by the customer support. Phone, Live Chat, Email — all of them extremely fast to respond.
- Not much to say, besides it was quick and easy. No complaints.
If I had to sum up the experience of purchasing crypto on the Ziglu App in one word, it would be ‘simple’ — it’s probably the easiest way to purchase crypto in the UK and I found it easier, quicker and better than using a traditional exchange.
You can literally, and I mean literally buy crypto in one tap and you can start anywhere from £1 although I spent a little more than that.
They also have a Bitcoin Boost feature where you earn interest on your Bitcoin but I haven't had a chance to check that feature out yet, although it seems like something unique as most other exchanges I’ve used don’t offer interest on Bitcoin
What to improve
- It would be cool if they added an option to withdraw / send crypto to an external wallet. Ziglu were recently acquired by Robinhood, so hopefully this deal will help Ziglu integrate these features into their app — We’d also love to see HOGE (Hoge Finance) added, and judging by these tweets, I’m guessing we aren’t far away from that happening!
- If you want to use Ziglu and create an account, feel free to use our referral link, which can be found on our twitter!
