What is Cointrust?
Today, bitcoin and other crypto currencies have a lot of problems that limit their adoption. It's hard to move money into bitcoin. You can't use a credit or debit card, PayPal, Dwolla, or MoneyGram to buy bitcoin. There are no safe and easy ways to hold bitcoin that allow you instant access. It takes an hour to move a bitcoin from Coinbase to Bitstamp. No US bank can (or should) embrace bitcoin because there are too many compliance problems. You can easily lose your private keys or have them stolen. The price of bitcoin is volatile and there is limited liquidity. The list of problems goes on and on...
At Cointrust, we think there is better way that has almost all of the benefits of bitcoin without the problems. Using our approach, banks can issue virtual currencies without any compliance problems.
Regulators, lawmakers, and bankers that we've briefed love our unique approach. They tell us it is "fantastic" and "far and away better" than any other approach they are aware of. Payments experts think our approach is "bigger than bitcoin."
We believe that Cointrust will be a game changer for the adoption and use of digital currencies worldwide.
