The New York State Financial Services Authority (NYDFS) issued another BitLicense, this time to Tagomi, a cryptocurrency broker, allowing the company to operate in its jurisdiction.

Tagomi works on the “agency-only” model, providing clients with consulting services on how to execute their trading or investment strategies. The company is also looking for the best deals for its clients and among orders from other brokers.

The company began operations in December 2018, offering services to investors in Bitcoin, Ethereum and other digital assets. These include intermarket order execution, capital management, post-trading reporting, settlement and custodial services.

The press release says that in general, NYDFS approved 18 applications.

Earlier, the corresponding license was obtained by the operator of the cryptocurrency trade Robinhood

Brave Allows to Buy Crypto at Binance Inside the App

Now a widget on the tabs in the Brave browser gives users direct access to both the Binance US
25 March 2020   1024

Decentralized browser Brave announced a partnership with the cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Now, Brave users will be able to buy cryptocurrencies on Binance simply by opening a new tab in the browser.

A widget has appeared on the tabs in the Brave browser, which gives users direct access to both the Binance main site and the site of the American division of the exchange. Users will be able to exchange cryptocurrencies, view their balance and receive addresses for depositing cryptocurrencies directly in the browser. At the same time, developers left the option to disable the widget in the settings.

The developers emphasized that the widget uses the Binance API and does not download any data from the exchange servers, so that user data is protected. The new feature is available in the desktop version of Brave Nightly, and in the main version of the program it will appear in April.

The Binance widget on Brave’s privacy-oriented browser instills a safer way to buy and sell crypto and also reduces user friction to onboard, trade and interact with the Binance ecosystem. We are looking forward to our long-term partnership with Brave to make it even easier to interact with crypto and encourage more utility in the near future.
