Analytical agency Fundstrat Global Advisors will allow its clients to purchase research of various sectors of economy for bitcoins. To this end, the firm has entered into a partnership with BitPay processing.

Fundstrat stressed that many clients of the agency face the complexity and high cost of cross-border transfers. So, the option of bitcoin-payments should significantly facilitate the purchase of exclusive research works.

Fundstrat found that accepting payments via BitPay is considerably simpler, faster and less expensive than bank wires. Bitcoin payments make it easier for our clients, particularly those outside the US, by offering more options to pay for our research services without having to deal with the hassles of currency translation.

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
