On the 20th of November, WebMoney Transfer celebrated its 20th birthday. During these years we have had a long and interesting journey, launched unique services for individual users and for businesses and won the hearts and trust of almost 40 million people around the world.
The first online transaction within the system was made in the distant year 1998, where our story had begun. In that time the possibility of transferring funds and making payments without leaving a cosy home chair seemed unreal. Just imagine how innovative that idea was! We are talking about the period when a personal computer was a luxury beyond the reach of an average household and only a few had knowledge of the Internet. The creation of a modern system of electronic payments in the 90s was comparable to the launch of the first rocket into space.
Almost 20 years into the successful launch, we, without concealing our pride, are looking back on the journey we have made so far. Today WebMoney is not just an electronic wallet but it also comprised of over fifty convenient services. Users of the system have long benefited from using the crowdfunding platform, the INDX Exchange, the loan service, the business automation solutions provided by Capitaller-Shareholder, the social-business network WebMoney Events, the file storage service and many other services.
And yet, we reached another important milestone – we went beyond online payments! In addition to online payments, system users can now make payments with WebMoney in stores, pharmacies, restaurants, cafes and petrol stations.
Geographical borders never presented a real obstacle for our expansion and we are pleased to announce that we continue to challenge boundaries beyond territorial restrictions and we will add new types of electronic wallets to the existing 10 types in the near future.
The system participants, who were born on the 20th of November 1998 and hold BL 20 or higher, received a gift from us - 100 WMZ on their wallet. The WMID numbers of the lucky ones start from 035699******, 156168******, 395243******, 654029******, 351421******, 176087******.
Dear friends, thank you for staying with us! Please, remain seated and keep your seatbelts on, the journey of our spaceship within the WebMoney space will continue with many pleasant discoveries awaiting ahead!
