Independent financial services organisation, deVere Group, is launching a cryptocurrency app due to “soaring global demand”.
Available in a matter of weeks, deVere Crypto is the group’s second major fintech offering in less than 12 months.
deVere Group’s founder and chief executive, Nigel Green, commented: “Nothing has captured the imagination in this new fintech age quite like cryptocurrencies, specifically Bitcoin. No-one was really talking about it back in 2016. But those who invested in Bitcoin before the beginning of last year have enjoyed an impressive price increase. History will teach us that 2017 was the year that digital currencies came into the mainstream.
“To meet this soaring global demand, we’re launching deVere Crypto, a pioneering cryptocurrency app, available for Apple and Android. It allows users to store, transfer and exchange five major cryptocurrencies. These include Bitcoin and Ethereum. Our digital world needs digital currencies. It makes sense.”
He concluded: “Traditionalists who declare cryptocurrencies ‘a fad’ are akin to King Canute trying to command the tides of the sea to go back. deVere Crypto is designed to meet the growing need and want to store and transfer cryptocurrencies. It’s meeting the evident demand.”
deVere Group has a network of more than 70 offices across the world, over 80,000 clients and $12 billion under advisement.
