Special Thanks to All the Financial Bloggers

We finally unveiled our curtains here at SpringCoin to bring a personal finance tool aimed at helping people get out of debt while improving their spending habits.   Thanks to all the great advice from top notch personal finance blogger in the community, we’ve been able to implement a ton of features.   There are still some features that aren’t rolled out yet, but don’t worry, we’re working on them!

Here’s what some of the press are saying about SpringCoin:

SpringCoin  (formerly DebtEye), opens its online doors this morning with the noble intention of helping you, or possibly someone you know, get out of debt. No, SpringCoin won’t pay your bills for you, but through a combination of its “smart-learning software” and human expertise, it will provide a detailed plan to get yourself out of debt. -cnet

To create SpringCoin, Sun and his team surveyed consumers to get feedback and find out what parts of the original site worked and what could stand to change. Sun says DebtEye engaged customers, but they wanted the name to focus more on the positive aspects of managing your finances. Rather than watching debt, focus on growing your coin. Probably the most important part of SpringCoin that could make it stand out from other debt management sites is its financial education element. Sun and his team gathered content by speaking with financial bloggers, finance experts and using their own internal knowledge – Sun and his team are credit counselors.-Mashable

Using aggregated consumer data from financial institutions and credit bureaus, Springcoin can determine near real-time actionable items/recommendations for a consumer to get out of debt. An example would be limiting Starbucks spending to $10 a week if they notice a user is spending too much at Starbucks. —Siliconangle

One of the latest entrants, SpringCoin, offers automated personalized coaching to help consumers reduce debt. The firm, which sells consumer direct services as well as white label partnerships, is targeting what it sees as an opening between PFM firms that offer access to transactional data and user-driven budgeting tools, and traditional debt counseling firms that SpringCoin claims don’t adequately leverage new data as part of their services. —American Banker

We’d like to thank all the bloggers for their valuable inputs over the past few months.   I encourage everyone to check out their blog, they have awesome content ranging from getting out of debt to planning for your retirement.   In no particular order, here’s a list of the blogs:

    SpringCoin sounds really interesting! I’d love to read more about it sometime. Read your bio, and can identify with your loss of faith in debt settlement companies.
