Akimbo Launches the Next Generation of Social Banking

Akimbo, an Austin-based startup, announced a new service to share money with friends through electronic money transfers to Akimbo Visa Prepaid Debit Cards. Users can send funds instantly, and the recipient has immediate access everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, as well as at ATMs.

"As the payments industry tries to reinvent itself, we need to remember that it takes time for consumers to adopt and adapt to new technology," said Akimbo co-founder and CEO Houston Frost. "The reloadable prepaid account is a great 'bridge' to the wholly digital wallet -- it provides the convenience and ease of a cloud-based solution, with the familiarity and access of a physical card."

Akimbo helps individuals build their own network by allowing them to create up to five personalized "sub-cards" for friends. Once they have provided someone a sub-card, they can send money to the card. Website is www.akimbocard.com.
