Xapo

Xapo is a Hong Kong-based company that provides a bitcoin wallet combined with a cold storage vault and a bitcoin-based debit card. Xapo CEO and entrepreneur Wences Casares became interested in bitcoins because of the frequent financial fluctuations in his native Argentina.

Xapo believes that bitcoin’s ultimate success will be based on trust – trust in the digital currency and trust in the industry’s service providers. That’s why the company assembled a team of financial services and security experts to build a new usage and storage experience. By offering two distinct products – a free, easy-access Wallet and a fully-insured Vault – they’re marrying the convenience bitcoin users want for everyday needs with the security they require for confident bitcoin savings.
