Spare yourself the misery of going through lengthy articles when it comes to knowing about crypto and get this dude instead.
Meet Ben, the AI Powered Bitcoin Friend that will help you through your problems. Miguel Kurdy, the CEO and co-founder of Ben, has made you a crypto-Pinnochio that doesn’t lie. The idea of making this little chatbot came to him when Kurdy started out with cryptocurrency.
The initial days were troublesome as he had just started out. Back in 2017, when he tried to move funds from one wallet to another, he initially thought he had lost them.
“Neither exchange really told me anything about what was going on, and so I actually thought I had just lost my funds,” he said. “A little research on my own and I realized there was just a lag between the transfers.”
But he figured it out as most people do by going to his “bitcoin friend” for help.
And this is how he got the idea of creating Ben, AI-based chatbot friend “so that everyone could have an actual expert to talk to about bitcoin.”
How Ben Works
According to Kurdy, Ben it a combination of two things; cryptocurrency wallet and education center, all in one, digital, app-based home. Their target market is people who have little information about cryptocurrency and have never ventured into it but now what to get a taste of this medicine as well.
“We also target customers who have heard of bitcoin, and really just want to know what it is,” he added.
It offers a number of things like the history of bitcoin or comparison between different blockchain-based currencies. For more complex users, they can also know about the technology itself and get to know how it works.
“Offering people education in the space is not only about helping them understand the technology and how it works – but it is also helping them understand that it moves very rapidly and that things happen every day that affect price and the development of the tech,” Kudry said. “It’s important that people know what is going on.”
