Tranzbyte Acquires the YO!™ Debit Card Network
PHOENIX, Ariz., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tranzbyte Corporation (ERBB:OTC:PK), announced today that it has purchased the YO! Debit Card Network. The card is currently available to those signing up for it online at www.yomastercard.com. Currently, the YO! Card is accepted worldwide anywhere Mastercard is accepted. Customers can add money to their cards through 1000's of outlets nationwide.
In additional to acquiring the existing debit card network, Tranzbyte is designing and rolling out a new private network card called "YO21!" – a special-use card made available to all applicants over the age of 21. The YO!21 Card™ will be accepted at all of the company's proprietary automated dispensaries and other select merchants, projected to begin rolling out by year's end.
According to David Gwyther, Tranzbyte's president, "The YO! Card will be a passport allowing holders to purchase all products within our machine that are restricted to adults, 21 and over. Our automated dispensary will be the first of its kind to offer uncontestable, age-appropriate security and will not operate unless the purchaser is over the age of 21. The acquisition of the YO! Network creates the 'currency' for our machines and moves it one step closer to becoming the most advanced machine of its kind in the world."
The company encourages all folks wishing to follow our progress to visit the Tranzbyte website at www.tranzbyte.com and sign up to receive our 'Email Alerts' which are sent to interest-holders periodically. Just click on the orange 'contact' button after you arrive at the company's website. Mobile users can also sign up by navigating to the company's website on their android smart phone or iPhone."
