SAN FRANCISCO--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire) June 18, 2020 -- Civic Technologies, a leading innovator in digital identity solutions, today announced that Civic Wallet, previously only available in private beta, is now generally available in the App Store and Google Play. Civic Wallet offers a safer way to store and transact with digital identity and currency around the world. Civic also announced that in response to the market need for proof-of-health verification, it will offer the ability to provide secure and regulation-compliant health checks for employers, called Health Key by Civic™.
“We built Civic Wallet because we wanted to be the first company to get it right for the consumer,” said Vinny Lingham, CEO and co-founder of Civic. “By design, Civic Wallet puts you back in the driver’s seat with more control over your digital identity and money with no more seed phrases or passwords to remember.”
Civic Wallet offers an easy way to pay friends and family around the world. Civic Wallet holders are able to send and receive funds to usernames, addresses and even to QR codes after creating a verified identity. Digital currency, including BTC, ETH, USDC and CVC, may be sent globally with low fees for a limited time.
Civic Wallet holders can immediately bring in their digital currency and start protecting it with the company’s $1 Million Cryptocurrency Protection Guarantee†, provided by Coincover and insured by Lloyd’s of London underwriters. All verified Civic Wallets are automatically covered by this protection.
Because Civic Wallet is non-custodial and multisig, users not only have more control over their digital identities and currency, they may also easily restore their account if they lose their phone.
