BIRDFIN is a money management and value learning app designed to help children learn money before they earn money. On the app, parents can assign “tasks” to their children and upon successful completion of the task, parents can approve completion and award “Crystals” which they can eventually convert into real currency! This money gets credited to the Child’s savings account and the balance could be transferred into a Digital Wallet whenever the children have an expense to incur.
Setting up a BIRDFIN account is just a few clicks activity. You can visit the BIRDFIN website www.birdfin.app and register for the Birdfin App.

“CRYSTAL” is a part of the reward system BIRDFIN operates on. Upon successful completion of any “task” assigned to the child by the parent(s), “CRYSTALS” are credit into their account. These crystals eventually get converted to a real currency which gets credited to the kid’s bank account, and eWallet whenever the parent decides to.
