Cringle is the intuitive smartphone app for users who want to send money to friends all over Europe in a matter of seconds. By cooperating with your principal bank, the app guarantees your bank’s normal high security standards. Cringle has received numerous awards and has found a partner in Germany's foremost direct bank, the Deutsche Kreditbank AG (DKB).

Thanks to the Cringle smartphone app, you can send money to or request money from all your friends, as long as they have a European cell phone number - and all in a matter of seconds. It is as simple as sending a text message, is completely free of charge and requires no online banking TAN or PIN.

Cringle cooperates with the DKB (Deutsche Kreditbank), Germany's foremost direct bank, measured by number of checking accounts. This cooperation agreement does not only mean that we have a trustworthy partner but also that Cringle transactions can guarantee the same level of security that users are familiar with from their principal banks. Cringle is already available to private individuals with German checking accounts - no matter who their principal bank is.

In our everyday lives, we often need to send our friends money as quickly and simply as possible.

Virtual Reality is currently the number one topic. And while there are different opinions for what VR is suited best, everyone agrees that immersion and presence is key. In order to achieve that – for linear formats, cultural projects, education, conferences or games – there have to be convincing characters. Only with realistic people, with their gestures and facial expressions, people will start to feel deeply connected to a virtual world. That is why Trotzkind is working on technologies to film people in a way to bring them one-to-one into VR.
