- BRD released anticipated Augustus wallet which features in-app cryptocurrency trading.
- The wallet will enable users to store, send, and receive more than 100 unique ERC20 tokens.
Latest report reaching Cryptona.co this week revealed that BRD, a company formally known as Bread Wallet, has released its anticipated Augustus wallet which provides BRD users with lots of new features. The launched ‘Augustus’ wallet will not only offer Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin, and Ether balances, the wallet also enables users to store, send, and receive more than 100 unique ERC20 tokens that stem from the ETH network as well. More so, the BRD developers have added a secure in-wallet digital trading service for its supported assets.
Currently, the new features that come with the BRD ‘Augustus’ wallet are only available for iOS, but Alex Eaton, the BRD developing team’s community manager, explained that the Android version would be released soon. The new Augustus wallet comes with its standard services which enable users to hold their own private keys. More so, the new wallet allows users to choose which cryptocurrencies they would like to view in the wallet’s user interface, and the app will only list their chosen favorites. Another interesting addition for crypto enthusiasts is the ability to trade cryptocurrencies from within the wallet due to an integration with the Changelly API. According to Alex:
“The way that we do the trading within the app is with an integration with Changelly. Eventually we want to use a decentralized exchange (DEX) and we’ve been in talks with some development teams. Aaron Lasher, the CMO of BRD, and I were talking about it just yesterday and our team does not feel that DEX platforms are ready for integration yet. So, we are still waiting for some DEX platforms to be safe enough so we can feel more comfortable with integration.”
The BRD platform will make use of a native BRD token which can be stored in the wallet. The company explained during Augustus wallet announcement that the BRD tokens can be used to earn rewards and discounts that become available as the firm grows, these tokens can also be traded on the open markets. Alex said:
“We’ve been doing an airdrop for two weeks and we just started round three of our airdrop this morning — So we’re giving out so far 20 BRD tokens for every single person that registers. We’ve been doing the airdrop at weeks at a time, where week one we were looking for 10,000 registrants and everyone got 10 BRD tokens.”
“This week we are looking for only 4,000 registrants and if we hit that the amount, everyone regardless of which week you signed up for, will get 25 BRD tokens — Then next week when we start week four will have another registration cap.”
