Why we’re adding more tokens to the app

While the rest of the team is busy at work building new features for our community, we thought we’d head over here and give you a little update on the move.

Invite friends, earn Bitcoin 🤑

We’ve boosted our referral programme. Here’s what you need to know.

Get Bitcoin for less 🚀

From today, you can buy and sell Bitcoin with as little as £20 in-app.

Mode App 101 📚

New to Mode? You’re in the right place. We’ve put together a quick run-down on just about everything you need to know about the app.

Bitcoin Cashback 101 📚

Bitcoin Cashback just levelled up, and we’re here to give you the full run-down on your new favourite rewards app.

🤟 Introducing Bitcoin Cashback – What it is and why we love it

You’re probably familiar with the concept of cashback. Imagine you were part of a cashback programme last year, that offered you a flat rate of 5% on everything you bought. Had you spent £10,000 on your credit card, you would have earned £500 cashback.

How we safely store your Bitcoin

As Bitcoin and other crypto currencies have taken a place within the global financial markets, regulators all over the world have faced challenging questions about how to do their job in such a new and fast-changing space.

How we’re utilising the power of Open Banking

Open Banking. To some people, it may get them thinking that this opens up their bank details. This couldn’t be further from the truth, it’s like saying chalk is cheese. It is becoming the most secure way for consumers to not only top up their accounts on other apps (i.e topping up your Mode GBP account) from their bank but also for merchants to accept payments.

Freezing accounts – Why it might happen…

With the rise of social media and review platforms providing a forum for customers to share their experiences with a particular establishment, whether it's a high street bank or new Fintech business like Mode; it is not uncommon that as a potential new customer, you would look at this feedback to shape your opinion or form a decision.

Why you should be aware of safe account scammers

It’s a story as old as time. Somebody from your bank calls, they tell you that there is something wrong with your account and that they’re contacting you to help keep your money safe.

About Mode Operations – A peek behind the curtain

In the closing chapters of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy is in awe of the Great Oz, his bellowing voice and apparent wisdom. She marvels at his technology and power, believing the wizard's “magic” to be controlling everything but as we know, her dog Toto soon finds out this performance is all smoke and mirrors and it’s just an old guy behind a curtain, pulling levers and tweaking knobs… pretending.
