Ledger Adds Support for 8 New Cryptocurrencies

Popular hardware wallet provider Ledger has added support for third party applications developed for eight new digital assets to its Ledger Nano S device. From now on, the company will announce new additions on the first Tuesday of each month, in order to streamline app validation.

Starting this week, the Ledger Live application for Ledger Nano S offers the following new coins: Poa, Icon, Vechain, Wanchain, Ontology, Kowala, Particl, and RSK, the company announced in a tweet. Ledger developers have also provided a link to their roadmap for planned releases and other useful details published on Trello.

In a blog post, the team behind Ledger notes that the validation process for third-party apps will be simplified with clearer guidelines, giving developers more comprehensive guidance on security good practice, device applications interface, experience, and design requirements.

The new applications will be available for installation on Ledger devices through Ledger Live. However, the coins won’t be directly compatible with the native app and initially customers will have to use a compatible third-party wallet to perform transactions. “Ledger Live will gradually incorporate full support for third-party applications to enable Ledger users to not only install, but also transact with these new crypto assets directly from Ledger Live,” the company explains.

Okex Launches White Label Platform

Crypto exchange Okex has announced the launch of its new Coinall platform, a white label solution which is part of its Open Partnership program that started a couple of months ago. “The launch of CoinAll, the 1st exchange under Open Partnership Program, symbolizes a new era to build a community- and project-centric open exchange, unveiling an exciting new chapter in the blockchain industry!” the Chinese-run company posted on Twitter.

Participants in the Open Partnership program will now be able to take advantage of a variety of services offered by the exchange, including its clearing system, cold and hot storage, applicable anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) procedures. Coinall developers also claim that it is the first autonomous, community-run crypto-trading platform.

Coinall has released 10 billion CAC tokens, 51% of which will be allocated as rewards to users. The other 49% are reserved for the founders of the exchange and the members of the Open Partnership program. Currently, the platform offers trading pairs of CAC with bitcoin core (BTC), ethereum (ETH), and tether (USDT).

Exmo Introduces Faster Payments with Mistertango

Thanks to a newly announced partnership with Lithuania-based payments provider Mistertango, European crypto exchange Exmo will offer its users the opportunity to make instant deposits and withdrawals in EUR. Traders will also be able to make Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA) transfers which translates into faster payments.

The Mistertango payment account will allow Exmo users to fund their crypto-related activities using fiat currency. The account comes with an IBAN number, offering the ability to instantly transfer money via SEPA, and a prepaid Mastercard as well. According to a press release, the Lithuanian company already works with more than 100 cryptocurrency exchanges and intends to expand further in the crypto space.

Estonian Citowise Offers CC Purchases of Cryptos

Crypto wallet provider Citowise is now offering users the option to buy cryptocurrencies with Visa, Mastercard and American Express debit/credit cards. The newly integrated function in its Android app currently supports purchases of bitcoin core (BTC) and ethereum (ETH), with plans to add other cryptos in the future, including bitcoin cash (BCH), litecoin (LTC), ripple (XRP), and NEO. In a blog post, the team promises that the functionality will also be available on iOS soon.

In order to buy cryptocurrencies with their bank cards, users need to pass KYC and AML verification, a service provided by a third party – Citowise’s partner company Transcoin. The purchasing limits for this option are set at €32,000 (~$36,600) per month. The total can be spread over a maximum of four credit or debit cards, the company notes. The app of the Tallinn-based startup also supports purchases of cryptocurrencies with SEPA payments. In this case, the monthly limit is €200,000 and the daily is €40,000.
