Bitwage recently announced a “preferred” wallet partnership with Casa and Edge Wallet.
On August 1st, news broke that they were partnering with Casa and Edge “as preferred wallet partners.”
According to Bitwage, this means that users can now “download and access Casa or Edge as wallet options via [their] platform.” It may “sound like a minor change, but the implications are massive for new Bitwage users,” the company claims.
First of all, this makes their sign-up process “much more streamlined.”
For new users who are unfamiliar with crypto – and without a wallet – “this small change puts the power in their hands.”
By giving these users two trusted options like Edge and Casa, Bitwage are “asking them to take self-custody into their own hands, which is the most liberating part of being a crypto/Bitcoin holder.”
Second, the firm views this move “as a part of Bitwage’s dedication to educating new and current users.”
Jonathan Chester, Bitwage CEO, echoed these sentiments:
“Education is a very important part of the Bitwage experience, and part of this experience is helping our users understand wallets while teaching them how to be their own bank.”
How does it work?
Previously, when using Bitwage, new users had to “come to the table” with a wallet address “before using [their] service.”
Now that they offer Edge and Casa as preferred options, this is “no longer the case.”
The feature can be “accessed by companies and individuals, and for both parties, the process is simple.”
On the Bitwage platform, it is “merely a matter of selecting your cryptocurrency of choice, and then choosing a wallet – Edge or Casa – you’d like the crypto sent to.”
From there, users can easily “download the wallet of their choice and connect it back to the Bitwage platform.” And, just like that, you now “have a wallet to receive your crypto allocations after each payroll.”
On the day of their announcement, Bitwage held a Twitter Space with Bitcoin Magazine, Edge, and Casa. It was a productive session in which company leaders “shared their insights on this partnership.”
