Monero (XMR) Might Finally Be Integrated to Abra, According To the Crypto Wallet’s CEO
Monero may have made headlines when it became the first crypto asset to obscure users’ identities when providing quicker, safer transactions. It was an idea that was both puzzling and fascinating back then.
But, while such isn’t fresh news anymore, XMR yet again stole the headlines after botnet attack which increased the average mining costs to $250,000. The attack immediately instigated a ferocious battle among the coin’s miners, even though its effects later affected the ecosystem.
According to a tweet from the CEO and founder of Abra, Bill Barhydt, who has also spoken as the AMA session, their organization’s AMA talk was necessary for those eager to learn from Abra. He termed it a “rare opportunity.”
He, however, wasn’t the only one speaking about the essence of the talk. The firm’s VP of Product, Willie Wang, and the PM, Matt Helmer also insinuated that they could be talking about how they can pave the way for non-Americans invest in stocks and equities using BTC. Bill Barhydt later discussed with the host of Monero Talk, Douglas Tuman, about the whole topic of synthetic assets.
The CEO, however, used the podcast to hint at a possible BTC integration into their operations. Abra, an app-based global investments firm, is eager to go beyond the borders and earn a share of the global markets.
Since the turn of the year, this company has been working tirelessly to offer fractional investment services in form of Bitcoin. The services are already available for non-US based customers in 150 countries.
But in readiness to suitably meet the needs of its growing customer base, Abra seems eager to ensure everything sails on smoothly. The firm’s development team is working hard to develop an app which will handle everything, from money transfers to payments such as lending, borrowing, and making investments.
Abra is a growing crypto-startup which employs the Delta Neutral business strategy in its operations. Basically, it operates on a decentralized platform, and based on crypto-as-a-collateral, allowing one to build “synthetic assets.”
At the moment, it is working towards patenting the new trading method, even as it ponders on the risks associated with using an intangible asset like Bitcoin. All the efforts are likely to solidify Abra’s growing role of a steward of the crypto ecosystem.
According to the company’s CEO, the idea they are working on will make it easy to convert crypto for crypto before withdrawing them. He said that one would conveniently convert BTC to XRM, adding that every withdrawal of XRM will be made over Abra.
Barhydt went on to as far as taking questions from Redditors and eventually clarified on the questions on the format of backup keys plus wallet compatibility. He said that the use of HD deterministic key to serving as a master key would make it easy to extract other keys from it.
The platform, according to the CEO, aims to develop a tool which would allow every user to create keys according to their coins. He, however, clarified that they hadn’t drafted it in their roadmap yet.
Other representatives of Abra who spoke use the opportunity to clarify on the synthetic assets and stocks held in the multi-sig BTC contract. They said that for one to access and even spend them, he or she will only have to use both the user’s key and Abra’s key.
