Latest news about Bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies. Your daily crypto news habit.
The Bitcoin.com team is excited to announce integration of Ethereum into the Bitcoin.com Wallet. That means anyone can now buy, receive, store, trade, and send ether (ETH) with the convenience and security of the industry’s most user-friendly, non-custodial wallet.
How It Works
When you open the Bitcoin.com Wallet, you’ll now see the Ethereum section in your home screen. Tapping the “BUY” button will prompt you to enter a purchase amount. If you’ve already set up your payment method, your purchase will go through instantly. It’s that easy!
If you have other cryptocurrencies in your Wallet, you can now swap any amount for ETH – or vice versa. You can also send and receive ETH using the Bitcoin.com Wallet, just like you do with any other asset.
You also have the option to import an existing Ethereum wallet. Just tap the “ADD/IMPORT” button on the home screen and scan the QR code or enter the 12-word secret phrase from your existing wallet.
Your Digital Assets, in Your Control
Remember, the entire Bitcoin.com Wallet (including your Ethereum wallet) is ‘non-custodial,’ meaning you’re in full control of your digital assets. No need to ask permission from a centralized exchange to instantly send your assets wherever you want, whenever you want. You’ll never be ‘deplatformed,’ and there’s no exposure to the risk of a third party getting hacked or going bankrupt. Of course, with great power comes great responsibility, so don’t forget to back up the ‘keys’ to your wallet.
Unstoppable Domains & ENS Integration
The Bitcoin.com Wallet also now supports both Unstoppable Domains and Ethereum Naming System (ENS). That means you can easily send cryptocurrencies – including BTC, BCH, ETH, and more – to an alias like “jessica.crypto” or “vitalik.eth.” Get your own Unstoppable Domain in the Wallet via the Discover tab.
