You can set your native currency to either bitcoin or fiat (Euros /GBP). This will display your total balance on the home screen in your selected currency. To change this setting:
Tap the cog icon ⚙️ in the bottom right corner to open the settings page.
Next, tap the ‘Native currency’ button to bring up a list of currencies and set your preferred native currency.
What does this change?
On the home page, your ‘Total balance’ will now be displayed in the currency you selected. (You can still tap the ‘Total balance’ button and switch between displaying your funds in specific currencies.)
Your chosen currency will also be automatically preselected when sending/requesting funds to/from another Bottlepay user. (You can still change this by clicking the downward-facing arrow next to the transaction amount.)
How can I see the value of my non-native accounts in my native currency?
Sometimes it can take effort to understand the value of your non-native currency. 🤷 If you are used to thinking in terms of fiat, then you might find it helpful to see the value of the bitcoin in your account in GBP / Euros. Either way, we’ve got you covered. 👍
From the settings page, toggle the ‘Show currency conversions’ slider to the right.
On the home screen, you can now see the balance of your non-native currency accounts, with the value in your native currency shown directly underneath. 🎉
