Mode Backed By Twitter Co-Founder Releases Bitcoin Banking App

A financial services firm, Mode backed by Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, has rolled out its Bitcoin banking app on iOS devices.

On Feb. 4 Finextra reported that the British company made its app available globally, with the exception of the United States. Customers can start using the app with as much as £50 ($65) and buy BTC with bank cards or through a bank transfer.

The funds are further processed through digital assets custodian BitGo. The app allows users to credit funds instantly by means of a faster payments process.

Ariane Murphy, head of communications and marketing at Mode, said:

“The Mode app addresses transaction restrictions issues, low speed/high cost, lack of security and most importantly, tackles the poor user experience typically associated with Bitcoin apps.”

Mode requires a Know Your Customer procedure, which is carried out by AI-enabled identity verification technology.

Founded in 2018, Mode whose parent company is UK-based fintech firm R8 Group opened a waiting list for the app last October, initially making it available via invitation only.
