TrustWallet, the Ethereum-centric wallet has added support for the top cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC) for its iOS users, according to an official announcement on their blog.
TrustWallet was acquired by Binance back in July of this year, thereby adding an on-chain mobile wallet to the slew of services offered by the exchange.
No support for Bitcoin??
One of the reasons why TrustWallet never supported Bitcoin is because TrustWallet specializes in Ethereum based tokens, ERC20, ERC223, and ERC721. Primarily focusing on providing safety and privacy to their uses, the wallet has principled itself to never access user data, hold private keys or ask for any personal information.
In addition to Ethereum and the newly-added Bitcoin support, TrustWallet also backs GoChain (GO), POA Network (POA), Callisto (CLO), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Wanchain (WAN) and VeChain (VET) and TRON (TRX).
Currently, this addition is available for the wallet’s iOS users only with the Android update coming to users’ devices in 2-3 weeks, as per the announcement. The end of the year will also bring in TrustWallet support for Litecoin [LTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] .
Here are some features highlighted from their annoucement:
Trust Wallet Features:
- Mobile Gateway to a Decentralized World
- Automatic support for all ERC20, ERC223 and ERC721 tokens
- Curated DApp Gallery
- Most secure and intuitive Multi-coin wallet backed by Binance.
- Support for Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) by end of the year
