IG Group’s US operation announced tastycrypto
Earlier this year, IG Group’s US operation announced the launch of the tastytcrypto brand, IG’s digital asset trading face which has unveiled the first of many offerings: a self-custody blockchain wallet on the Bitcoin and Ethereum networks. The self-custody digital wallet will be available in January 2023.
tastycrypto will give users control over their digital assets and access to opportunities across decentralized finance. The new crypto focused brand reinforces IG Group North America’s commitment to strategically invest and innovate in the digital asset and DeFi space.
Users will be able to use tastycrypto for custody, control, and ownership of their digital assets (such as cryptocurrency, tokens, and NFTs). Initially, they will be able to view their token balances, transfer cryptocurrency, and view transaction history on the Bitcoin and Ethereum networks.
tastycrypto has plans to allow users to fund their wallet using licensed third-party payment methods, swap tokens on-chain, connect to decentralized applications, and transfer cryptocurrency to their wallet from their tastyworks brokerage account where they have access to trading in 25 different cryptocurrencies today.
