The open source Wallet is designed to be a secure application for sending, receiving, and storing digital assets. It features a simple interface for newcomers and veterans in the space. Our last version of the wallet gave users the ability to swap between BCH and BTC using the Sideshift platform. This week, the latest release of our light client has given U.K. and Europe-based users the ability to purchase BCH directly within the wallet thanks to our new Moonpay integration.

Bitcoin cash is a global currency with the potential to put an end to extortionate bank fees, delays, and fraud. But this isnt just an idea: its usable right now as digital money. Both online and instore, an increasing number of merchants are beginning to accept bitcoin cash. Roger Ver.

With the new buy service, Wallet users from Europe and the U.K. can quickly purchase the cryptocurrency using a credit or debit card. Small fractions of BCH (150 worth) can be purchased without the need for formally validating your identity. If you want to purchase a larger amount of BCH up to 5,000 daily, and up to 20,000 monthly, verification will be required. One of the earliest angel investors within the cryptocurrency space and CEO of, Roger Ver, explained during the announcement that providing these types of resources helps bolster digital currency accessibility.

Eliminate Exchanges and Reduce Risk by Purchasing Within the Wallet

Because the Wallet is noncustodial, it provides a a more secure solution for acquiring crypto because theres no need to deposit funds on a centralized exchange. After a purchase is made within the wallet interface the BCH is sent directly from the official seller to the owners noncustodial light client. This is in stark contrast to leaving funds on an exchange for a period of time to make a trade. Cryptocurrency exchanges are custodial, which means the exchange has full control of the users funds at all times.

The team at plans to introduce the wallets Buy feature to more countries soon.

Exchange breaches have been prevalent within the cryptocurrency industry for years and a few hacks have hit news headlines over the past few months. Canadas largest exchange, Quadriga, lost $145 million recently and Bithumb saw over $19 million worth of cryptocurrency siphoned out of the trading platform. In response to these recent exchange hacks, Roger Ver stated:

Its a big eye-opener for many people. Buying from an exchange means using their custodial wallet and, even if its just temporarily while you purchase the coins, the cryptocurrency is still not as secure as it could be the Wallet now lets users sidestep exchanges altogether, so your bitcoin cash is under your control from the moment you buy it.
