Civic Technologies, a specialist in digital wallet solutions, has launched Civic Wallet, whish it says is the first and only crypto wallet to offer a USD1 million (USD) digital currency guarantee provided by Coincover. Civic Wallet is currently in private beta.


“We believe that everyone needs access to a neutral, trustworthy place to store their digital currency, especially in this extraordinary new financial climate. People are looking to move their digital currency so that they have more control and reliable, easy restoration if they ever lose access to their funds,” says Vinny Lingham, CEO and co-founder of Civic. “Together with Coincover, we’re now ensuring that Civic Wallet users have this unique protection.”
 
The Coincover Cryptocurrency Protection Guarantee covers all Civic Wallet customer holdings up to a value of USD1 million per wallet. This protection comes automatically when signing up for Civic Wallet, and there are no extra steps users must take to be eligible.
 
“Protection for consumer level cryptocurrency is long overdue. This collaboration reflects the tremendous progress Coincover has made in bringing safety, trust, transparency and accessibility to the market for consumers,” says Coincover CEO, David Janczewski.
 
The Coincover and Civic alliance and Cryptocurrency Protection Guarantee represent continuous efforts from both Coincover and Civic to provide consumers with peace of mind as they enter into the crypto space in greater numbers. The timing couldn’t be more apt. The world economy is shifting rapidly, and governments have taken emergency measures to stabilize global markets, including cutting the interest rates to nearly zero. For crypto holders navigating economic turbulence, a Civic Wallet with a Coincover Cryptocurrency Protection Guarantee provides an additional layer of protection.
 
Civic Wallet offers a safe way for people around the world to store and transact with digital currency. With the inaugural Civic Wallet, users may onboard, store and buy digital currencies, including USDC, Bitcoin and Ethereum directly in the app with a bank account. Users may also send crypto and money to friends and family easily with low fees via usernames or addresses to third party blockchain wallets. In the event a user loses their phone or otherwise cannot open their wallet, digital wallet recovery is simple and intuitive.
 
Civic is offering its private beta to its list of pre-registered users in a phased rollout. The company will be announcing new features and capacities in future versions of the product with easy referrals to friends around the world.
