Pocket acquires bitcoin wallet app Bitkipi
We are excited to announce that we've acquired Bitkipi, the popular bitcoin wallet app. The acquisition marks a significant milestone in our efforts to provide our users with a simple and secure platform for buying and holding bitcoin in their own wallets.
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.
The acquisition of Bitkipi is an important step in our mission to make self-custody and long-term saving more accessible. We believe that everyone should have access to the financial freedom that bitcoin provides, and the Bitkipi app will be instrumental in helping us achieve that goal.
Our service has been available for almost 2 years. In that time, we have already exchanged over €50 million in bitcoin for customers from all over Europe and paid them out on self-custodial wallets. Our platform has gained a reputation for its user-friendly interface, low fees, and excellent customer service. With the addition of the self-custody wallet app, we are well on our way to becoming the go-to place for anyone looking to buy bitcoin.
Bitkipi's team will be integrated into our existing digital team, allowing us to work closely together to develop new and innovative features. The app will continue to be available on both the App Store and Google Play, and current users can expect to see continued improvements and updates. 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.
