According to the announcement, Apple recently approved the Universal Wallet for publishing after an extensive review. There are more than 140,000 pre-registered iOS users that can now download the wallet on their devices.
Last week, Ethos’s token price surged nearly 50% after the company launched the Universal Wallet for Android users in the Netherlands, Germany and the United States. Following the successful initial rollout and load testing, the Ethos team quickly released the wallet in numerous additional markets. It is now available globally.
As previously reported, the new wallet includes a number of features designed for universal usage and social investing. These include the SmartWallet, which allows users to securely store and manage coins on multiple blockchains, Watchfolio, a portfolio monitoring interface, and Coins, in-app coin profiles that feature charts, descriptions, reviews, ratings and more.
In the most recent announcement, the Ethos team highlights the level of testing that they have conducted on the app to guarantee usability and security.
The wallet has undergone a third-party security audit and penetration test along with tens of thousands of hours of user testing to guarantee the safety, security and ease of use of the app. Keys are secured by biometric and pin providing an easy and secure solution for all your cryptocurrency needs.
With the release, Ethos has unveiled its new Community Airdrop Program, where a number of notable projects have offered up free tokens to Ethos wallet users, as part of a marketing effort to increase adoption. So far, projects including OmiseGO (OMG) and Polymath (POLY) have committed funds to the program.
