NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--tZERO, the global leader in blockchain innovation for capital markets, through its tZERO Crypto unit, has launched its digital wallet and exchange services app (the “tZERO Crypto App”) for cryptocurrencies. Investors who want to participate in the global cryptocurrency market will be able to buy, sell, and hold these digital assets directly on their mobile phone through the tZERO Crypto App, rather than using more vulnerable, third party exchanges for custody.
The initial release of the app will support bitcoin and ethereum purchases, two currencies that are vetted for longevity. tZERO Crypto is committed to compliance and safety and will utilize biometric authentication for added security and ease of use. Investors will also have access to tZERO’s unique private key recovery system to restore their funds and cryptocurrencies in the event that they lose their private keys or mobile phone.
“We are excited to introduce the ability to trade and store cryptocurrencies in your mobile wallet,” said tZERO’s CEO, Saum Noursalehi. “The tZERO Crypto App is a significant milestone in our plans to provide an intuitive experience for trading all digital assets.”
The app is available for download today on iOS, and will be coming soon to Android. For more information on tZERO Crypto, please visit: https://www.tzero.com/crypto-app.
