More than 100,000 people have signed up for the app’s private beta waiting listThe app has been downloaded more than 12,000 times since its launch on Monday.

A privacy-oriented health check tool

According to Civic The technology is designed to protect the privacy of each individual’s identity. First, users can control which information they want to share and which they don’t. The company said:

“When a user registers with Civic Wallet, they authenticate themselves as real people using both AI and blockchain-based technology. After verification, Civic Wallet owners have more control over the information they share with third parties. For example, Civic Wallet users can share their health key, but not share their name or address with an applicant company. “

George Favvas, co-founder and CEO of Circle Medical, commented on this “Civic not only adheres to regulatory considerations, but is also determined to do the right thing for its users.”

Civic Wallet says goodbye to the first sentences and passwords

Unlike other wallets for cryptocurrencies In Civic Wallet, users no longer have to remember their original passwords or phrases.

With the ability to access multiple wallet signatures, custodians like BitGo and Coincover can get part of a user’s password. In theory, even if users lose their phones, the money should be recoverable.

As Cointelegrah previously reported, Coincover, which was subscribed by Lloyd’s of London subscribers, would offer Civic Wallet “FDIC insurance” for holdings of up to $ 1 million in cryptocurrencies.
