Swiss-based non-custodial bitcoin exchange Pocket Bitcoin has acquired a bitcoin wallet app Bitkipi to onboard more new bitcoin users to self-custody.
"With this acquisition, we now offer an in-house wallet app that enables beginners to easily get started with bitcoin and self-custody. Users can create a bitcoin wallet within minutes and securely store and buy bitcoin in the app without further relying on a third party."
"Bitkipi's team will be integrated into our existing digital team, allowing us to work closely together to develop new and innovative features."
"Since Bitkipi has already been using our public API in the background, through which bitcoin purchases are processed, nothing will change for existing Bitkipi customers."
