Coinone has become the first bitcoin exchange in South Korea to launch a multi-signature wallet, using BitGo’s API.
In a statement, Coinone CEO Myunghun Cha said it was time for exchanges to provide the “equal level of safety and control” as multi-sig wallet providers.
“We decided that multi-sig technology from BitGo was the answer to many security concerns facing exchanges and wallets. With its implementation, we hope to bring in more users from the national and international pool of bitcoin users.”
