Singapore-based cryptocurrency services platform Ethos announced earlier this week it has released a new update for its Universal Wallet, v1.6. According to Ethos, the update significantly builds on the existing ability to store, send and receive more than 140 coins/tokens, now enabling users to buy crypto with Simplex and conduct coin swaps with ShapeShift.
“Through the integration of Simplex, users can easily and safely buy crypto directly in their self-custodied Universal Wallet. Simplex is a global fiat purchase service enabling bitcoin and alt-coin purchases with credit and debit cards. This integration provides Ethos customers access to liquidity and exchange services between fiat and cryptocurrencies on an international scale, and every purchase deposits directly into their SmartWallet.”
Ethos also reported that in addition to these major feature integrations, UTRUST (UTK) and two additional stable coins, Gemini Dollar (GUSD) and True USD (TUSD), are now supported by the Universal Wallet. Ethos went on to add that all new coin integrations will be active and available post-update release, and will be formally announced by the Ethos team and social channels.
