The developers of the Waves blockchain platform have released the previously announced browser extension Waves Keeper to securely sign of transactions.

Team said that the extension allows to confirm transactions online without providing confidential information to third-party resources and the need to enter a private key. Also, several accounts can be used in Waves Keeper.

The major benefit is that private keys are stored securely within the extension, allowing the user to confirm transactions and engage with Waves-enabled web services and dApps without entering their private keys or passwords. This mitigates the threat from malicious websites, while making using Waves online frictionless.

One of the world's largest consulting firms, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), announced the launch of an updated audit solution that supports cryptocurrency assets. This is stated in the press release of the company.

A tool called Halo aims to provide warranty services to cryptocurrency transactions. In particular, the solution helps to create independent evidence for private-public key pairs, which is one of the elements necessary for establishing cryptocurrency ownership rights.

In addition, Halo can collect information about transactions and balances on the blockchain.

As noted in the statement, the decision can be used by companies for which PwC is not an auditor. The initiative should help them try new opportunities and solve problems related to the blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Currently, PwC can use the updated tool to provide warranty services to customers operating Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Diamond, LiteCoin, Ethereum, Ripple (XRP), as well as the ERC-20 OAX token.

PwC has been showing quite a strong interest in the cryptocurrency industry for several years now. So, in 2017, the company began accepting payments in Bitcoins, and last year began to develop new standards for the ecosystem of digital assets and stablecoats.
