Another step has been taken in the march to make Bitcoin the leading digital currency. The Polish startup Sellbox is a startup company that created a platform that enables the user to sell digital good from their cloud in mere seconds.

 

“We give you this short link that you can post on your twitter, Facebook, or on your website. When someone clicks the link, they will see your product page with all your descriptions, images, and the price. When they pay you get your money instantly,” said Piotr Machowski, CEO and Founder of Sellbox.

With their platform, Sellbox facilitated the sale of a variety of digital products, such as video tutorials, indie video games, and any other file that can be uploaded to the cloud. A cooking blogger has even uploaded a PDF of her favorite recipes and distributed it to her followers. In that particular case, Sellbox facilitated the blogger receive donations in exchange for her recipes.

“We’ve made it very easy for our users to start using Sellbox. By utilizing the cloud transactions can be done in below 60 seconds. You don’t have to upload anything. One of the key benefits of using Sellbox, besides our low fee, is that you get your money instantly. So you don’t have to wait a month or even 2 weeks for the withdrawal,” per Piotr.

Sellbox was chosen as the second best company from over 500 European startups at the Webit Congress Startup Challenge. They has also joined the current host of startups attending the Plug and Play Startup Camp, and will be demoing their product at the Spring Expo on March 27th.

But you won’t have to wait that long to hear the Sellbox team give their pitch. At the next Bitcoin Meetup at Plug and Play on the 18th, they will be talking about how and why they recently integrated Bitcoin into their service.

“Bitcoin is a great innovation. We love the idea that it was born for the Internet, and that it’s the currency of the Internet. We believe it will grow in popularity and become the main tool to pay over the Internet. That’s why we are excited to include it in Sellbox,” according to Piotr.

With Sellbox users create digital market places where they can buy and sell products with Bitcoin. Any file that can be uploaded into the cloud can be bought using Bitcoin over Sellbox. It’s an exciting glimpse of a future where Bitcoin is used ubiquitously. Currently the company has integrated Coinbase, but a sellers can receive Bitcoins through their private wallet.

“We believe in the currency and we like to encourage people to start using it,” said Piotr.
