Casa launches a self-contained, privacy-oriented Bitcoin wallet

Casa, the New York-based cryptocustody startup, has launched a new wallet for Bitcoin novices and long-time HODLers.

In a Casa blog post on June 13, the crypto company that provides a private key management service announced that it had created Casa Wallet after an investment from the private equity fund Mantis VC. Casa Wallet is a wallet software designed around privacy, and allows users not to provide any personal information other than a name and email address.

Also, unlike some software wallets like Exodus, Casa said its users don’t need to create an account with an initial phrase, usually a mnemonic phrase needed to regain access to a wallet. According to Casa, users can create a key to be stored on their mobile device. An encrypted backup is split between House and the operating system-specific cloud provider, which wallet holders can retrieve with a two-factor authentication.

Casa Wallet also has „Key Health“, a feature that allows users to check their private keys, confirm that the wallet is backed up, and verify that user signatures are authentic.

This is not your first foray into the purse space
As Cointelegraph reported in September, Casa launched its Sats non-custodial mobile wallet application for Android and iOS users. Sats can be used without the company’s Bitcoin (BTC) Lightning hardware node.
