Canadian Startup Adds 1.2 M BRD Customers to Ranks
TORONTO, Aug. 16, 2018 /CNW/ - Coinberry and BRD announced a new partnership at the Blockchain Futurist Conference in Toronto yesterday, which will introduce 1.2 million BRD customers to the Canadian crypto trading platform.
Based in Toronto, Coinberry is Canada's first federally registered commission-free crypto trading platform, which secures the best cryptocurrency prices from trusted exchanges using proprietary algorithms. Switzerland-headquartered BRD (formerly Bread Wallet) was the first crypto app to be available in the iOS store. Now available via iPhone and Android apps, BRD has customers in 150 countries and its non-custodial wallet protects approximately 8 billion USD. The partnership between the two companies will introduce BRD's community of 1.2 million users to Coinberry's platform.
The announcement comes shortly after Coinberry's shift to commission-free crypto trading, a Canadian first.
BRD's non-custodial wallet means there is no "honey pot" to hack or data to hand over to a central authority, making the wallet the most private and secure onramp in crypto. Wallet users can easily purchase Bitcoin and other digital currencies, exchange currencies, or deposit or withdraw from their bank account.
"BRD is both a pioneer and technology leader in cryptocurrency and we are very excited to join forces." said Andrei Polikov, President of Coinberry. "BRD's wallet has all functionality a crypto user could want, and we expect BRD's community will enjoy taking advantage of Coinberry's great rates on crypto."
"In Coinberry, we believe we have found a reliable partner whose platform will provide Canadian users with a great crypto-trading experience, seamlessly connecting with their bank accounts," said Adam Traidman, CEO and co-founder of BRD. "Too often users have been frustrated by unreliable companies with frustratingly long wait times, or companies that don't support Canadian bank accounts. We share Coinberry's goal to make cryptocurrency trading simple, secure and accessible to everyone."
