  • How much pocket money should you give your kids? There’s no right or wrong answer here. Think about your family budget and what your kids might want.
  • At what age can you teach kids about money? The earlier the better. Even very young kids can start to understand what things cost.
  • What is the best way to teach kids about money? Pigzbe is a digital piggy bank that allows kids to manage their pocket money and learn about saving.

Adult life isn’t easy for anyone. The list of responsibilities is long, and your free time is short. But for the young folks who understand how to look after their money, the transition is a little smoother. At least their hard work is rewarded with a rising bank balance.

You can teach your kids this important skill set with Pigzbe. This digital piggy bank helps your offspring to collect pocket money, visualize their earnings and spend it wisely.

What is a digital piggy bank?

Although cash is still a major part of our economy, the world is moving away from physical currency. For kids that will grow up in a world dominated by credit cards and digital payments, it makes no sense to be saving up shiny quarters.

Kids will love managing their money with Pigzbe

That’s why Pigzbe runs on a digital currency known as Wollo. When you want to send pocket money to your child, you simply purchase Wollo using your local currency and make a transfer via the companion smartphone app.

Pigzbe is more than a digital piggy bank

There’s no fee for using Wollo, even across borders — so distant relatives can easily send Birthday gifts. In addition, parents can assign rewards for completing chores.

Pigzbe works with tasks

When your child wants to spend their savings, it’s easy to turn Wollo back into normal money. Furthermore, you get to check any proposed spending spree before it happens.

Learning about personal finance

Secure hardware

You might be wondering about the security side of this. Whereas a physical piggy bank can be kept safely within your home, a digital wallet is easier to lose.

Pigzbe is even more secure than a regular piggy bank

Thankfully, Pigzbe is super secure. Your kid’s savings are protected with hardware encryption, and the Wollo currency can’t be stolen from the Pigzbe.
