- Bitwage has partnered with two Bitcoin wallet providers to streamline its onboarding process.
- Casa and Edge Wallet helped Bitwage develop a user interface to integrate each of the wallets with its payroll platform.
- These partnerships allow Bitwage to automate the business onboarding process from start to finish.
Bitwage, a bitcoin payment provider, is partnering with security firm Bitcoin Casa and Edge Wallet to ease the process of onboarding businesses to a bitcoin standard, according to a press release sent to Bitcoin Magazine.
In the release, Bitwage explains that through conversations with governments and businesses, one of the biggest hurdles bitcoin faces as a payroll option is how to educate employees about bitcoin. Bitwage required its users to provide the address of the bitcoin wallet to which they wanted to receive payment.
The company noted that the process of copying and pasting an address can be easy for those familiar with the ecosystem, but it can seem downright daunting for someone new to the space.
“Finally, users can remove the need to copy and paste addresses between apps and websites when they need to request crypto into their wallet,” said Paul Puey, CEO and co-founder of Edge. Wallet.
The new partnership with Casa and Edge will allow users to select one of two Bitcoin wallets from the initial setup. This will allow Bitwage to guide its users from start to finish through a fully automated process.
“Education is a very important part of the Bitwage experience, and part of that experience is helping our users understand wallets while teaching them how to be their own bank,” said Jonathan Chester, CEO of Bitwage.
“Edge and Casa are two of the best and most secure wallets out there,” he continued. “Our partnership with these wallets is just the start of our journey to educate millions of workers around the world about bitcoin, cryptocurrency and stablecoins and what it means to be paid in these currencies.
Both wallet providers helped Bitwage throughout the development process and enabled seamless integration for a better user experience. Big changes have been made to the user interface and a QR code allows instant access to the wallet of one’s choice.
“We are delighted with this seamless integration which makes it easier and more secure for Bitwage users to hold the keys to their bitcoin, protecting them against many of the security risks we have seen highlighted in our industry this year,” said Christian Wallin. , Vice President of Product and Design at Casa.
