"Happy Bitcoin Genesis Day! On this date we're proud to launch @AquaBitcoin, software that brings together the greatest Bitcoin innovations from the past 15 years. A genuine all-in-one wallet for everyone," announced JAN3.
"AQUA lets users send and receive Tether USDt, Bitcoin, Lightning, and Liquid digital assets effortlessly. All the complications associated with Lightning channels, peg-ins, other cryptocurrency chains, and asset swapping are streamlined, yet without sacrificing full control and custody of your keys," was stated in a blog post.
"We just need to revise the two documents to split them up better between web and app (making two sets of docs), and better clarify points on KYC/AML that may come from a third party service, which users may opt into. For example on Android we have an integration with Meld where you can buy Bitcoin."
"AQUA’s design philosophy is a non-custodial core, we must integrate with third-parties to provide useful services. We prioritize those that are open or P2P, but we also will have services that require registration or KYC - however those services are completely opt-in," he added.
