2019 may be winding to a close, but the blockchain boom happening in tech is showing no signs of slowing down. Those who are curious about using blockchain to trade cryptocurrency might be intimidated by long wallet hash IDs or worried about security when trying to choose a trading platform. This week’s #WebsiteWednesday, Argent.xyz, is aiming to address those issues with the goal of making blockchain trading simpler and safer.
Argent.xyz is a decentralized cryptocurrency wallet that combines a simple interface with leading security features, designed to offer a better overall experience for crypto traders. With your Argent.xyz wallet you can choose a custom ID (i.e. YourName.Argent.xyz), allowing you to send funds to readable names rather than long, cryptic hashes, and picking a name is completely free.
Normally crypto wallets require the owner to save a paper backup of their wallet ID for security purposes, but Argent.xyz claims their complete security service will allow you to lock your wallet from anywhere and recover it with ease if you lose your device. In addition, Argent.xyz says you’ll never give up your privacy when using their service, thanks to the decentralized nature that allows their customers to remain anonymous and keep their assets secure. If you have questions or need any help using the service, Argent.xyz’s team has a helpful support page and provides personal assistance with issues.
The team behind Argent.xyz are incredibly experienced. Argent.xyz CTO Gerald Goldstein (holder of a PhD in nuclear physics) and CEO Itamar Lesuisse’s (holder of a Masters in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering) last venture was a cognitive training startup that reached over 50,000,000 users, and CSO Julien Niset (holder of a PhD in quantum information and quantum cryptography) sold his previous business to the world’s leading quantum security hardware business prior to joining Argent.xyz’s team. Their combined startup expertise is one factor that helped them secure $4.2 million in funding, which they’ve used to grow the scale of their service and onboard new users more quickly.
As new technologies are introduced to the masses, true innovators find what users need most, and then create solutions for them. Just as .xyz introduced a solution for internet users to brand on memorable domains, Argent.xyz has worked to develop a simple and secure wallet to help make crypto trading easier. You can download Argent.xyz’s wallet app for iOS or Android, or stay up to date on the latest news via their blog and Twitter page.
