Recently, there’s been a lot of press surrounding certain companies lacking trust and evoking stock market scandals.
Centralised systems misusing the trust they capture is the reason why Bitcoin was created. Trust is inherent to its blockchain and no one can manipulate its decentralised system. We at Bitwala embrace this technology and empower people to benefit from it.
Bitwala is here to make a difference and challenge this by offering secure and trustworthy crypto accounts.

"The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that’s required to make it work. ... Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve." – Satoshi Nakamoto
