FAQs
Q:
A:

We’re not a bank – but we do offer a lot of the services that most banks provide. For example, with your Saifu account you can:

Make payments Accept payments Convert funds into other currencies Load currencies & cryptocurrencies
onto credit cards and debit cards
Pay employee salaries

… and more

Q:
A:

Most conventional bank accounts will only let you manage traditional currencies. However,
Saifu lets you manage
both traditional
currencies and cryptocurrencies.

Q:
A:

No… Saifu is very different from the typical cryptocurrency
exchange. There are three major benefits that a Saifu account
offers users:

Secure

Saifu uses world-class, bank grade security

Compliant

Whereas most cryptocurrency exchanges aren’t subject to
external regulation, Saifu wants to do more to protect its
customers – so we’ve deliberately chosen to work with
external regulators. We believe that subjecting our business to
external regulation helps to show our customers that
we’re committed to providing a service they can depend on.

Easy

Because Saifu gives you one account –
for both traditional currencies and cryptocurrencies – you don’t have
to endure the hassle of running both a conventional bank
account and a separate cryptocurrency exchange account.
Furthermore, our online service – and our mobile app – have both been designed to make it quick & easy for you to manage your
currencies & cryptocurrencies.

Q:
A: Currently, we
don’t offer loans
and we don’t offer
term deposits
Q:
A: Yes, of course.
Just click here… and
you can see how easy
it is to use Saifu. There’s
no obligation to open
an account.
Q:
A:

With just a few mouse clicks
and some answers to a few
simple questions, you can apply
for your own Saifu account. Then,
after we’ve run some standard
checks – that most banks run –
we’ll contact you to let you know
if your application has been
successful.

Q:
A:

No. Anybody can open an account. All you need is sufficient funds to do what you want to do… for example:

Buy cryptocurrencies Load money onto a debit card
Q:
A: Maybe yes… maybe no.

There’s no denying that a lot of people have made a lot of money by investing in cryptocurrencies. However, it’s impossible for anybody to predict future exchange rates.
