Bitwala this week: The Bitwala team is hard at work
Easter is just around the corner and our whole team would like to wish you a great Easter weekend ahead. We’d also like to share some updates so here’s what we’ve been up to recently.
Our growing waitlist
We’re just over 30 days in since we launched our counter for the new Bitwala and the demand has been incredible! 21,512 of you will be among the first to try our upcoming bank accounts.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates the processing of personal data, will come into effect on May 25, 2018. Security of your privacy and data are deeply embedded in our product DNA and we’re happy to announce that we at Bitwala welcome the GDPR. Learn more about the GDPR here.
A lot in store for you
We are hard at work to bring you the best banking experience that combines the features of everyday banking with the crypto economy and you’re in for something huge! Until then, here’s a reminder of what you’ll be able to do once we’re live:
SEPA Credit transfers, direct debits, standing orders and all the features you’d expect from a regular bank account
- Securely store crypto in a wallet you have full control over
- Directly buy and sell bitcoin from your Bitwala account
- Perform transactions with a contactless card connected to your account. No more top-ups!
We will keep updating you on our progress and in the meantime, feel free to follow us on your favourite social media platform!
