California based bitcoin wallet and Edge Security platform Airbitz has been making a lot of moves lately, and in their latest update they are partnering with South African bitcoin exchange Ice Cubed to add more buying and selling options to their wallet.
Ice Cubed (Ice3X) is a bitcoin exchange based in South Africa, which allows users to buy and sell bitcoins on their online platform using local currencies Rand (ZAR) or Nigerian Naira (NGN).
In the new partnership between the two companies, Airbitz wallet users will now be able to buy and sell bitcoins using the Ice Cubed exchange in ZAR and NGN, expanding the reach of wallet users to various currency options.
Founder and CEO of Ice Cubed Gareth Grobler said in regards to the new relationship,
“I have come across enough bitcoin companies, wallets and pretty much anything else you can think of in the bitcoin space, to know that Airbitz is one of the most reputable, ethical and simply “likeable” companies around. Paul heads up a team of Silicon Valley’s best, which is why I am happy to personally recommend the Airbitz app to all our customers at iceCUBED-X.”
The partnership may bare more fruits down the road, as Ice Cubed also said they are working on additional products that will be announced in the coming months.
Airbitz also recently partnered with Augur, an ethereum based prediction market, to enable them with highly secure account creation process for Augur end-users that automatically encrypts, backs-up, and even synchronizes their private account data across devices.
Airbitz also integrated the Glidera bitcoin exchange into the wallet last year so U.S. users can purchase bitcoin within the application.
