Crypto Exchange Firm Coinbase Purchases BRD for an Undisclosed Fee

In a recent report, Breadwinner AG, also known as BRD, a cryptocurrency wallet firm, has been bought by Coinbase Inc. for an undisclosed sum.

The company’s cryptocurrency wallet, formerly known as Breadwallet and Bread, was founded in 2015 and is a mobile-first wallet with over 10 million customers and $20 billion in assets under management. 

The company also offers crypto purchases, commercial registration, credit rating information, management tools, news, and merchant services in addition to the wallet.

The BRD app is accessible in over 170 countries for iOS and Android and contains features like iCloud key backup, configurable widgets, direct blockchain access, and 14 language compatibility. The app’s code is open source, and users receive BRD incentives based on usage, which are a type of transferable cryptocurrency.

Reaction to the Purchase

Reacting to the news of the purchase, BRD’s co-founders Adam Traidman and Aaron Voisine released a letter to their customers informing them of the recent development. They also assured their client base of the safety and security of their funds. 

They wrote, “Today, we would like to share the news that members of our team will be continuing our mission at Coinbase, where we will work together to bring the power of decentralization to even more users around the globe. At this time, nothing will change in the BRD wallet app, and as always, your funds are safe and secure.”

They continued, “You may continue to transact normally. In the future, BRD wallet users will have an optional migration path to self custody with Coinbase Wallet, which will include a special gift. Stay tuned for more details to come in 2022.”

Coinbase announced on Twitter that it is boosting its investment in self-custody and Web3 to increase global financial freedom. It wrote,” the BRD team will be joining @CoinbaseWallet to help accelerate web3 adoption. The team brings deep expertise in self-custody for crypto wallets, which will help Wallet enable more people to safely and securely access the decentralized world of crypto.”

According to Crunchbase, BRD had raised $54.8 million in venture capital funding before its acquisition. Xpring, SBI Crypto, East Ventures, Das Capital, and OKWave were among the investors.

The purchase was disclosed just one day after the Senate Banking Committee wrote letters to Coinbase and other companies inquiring about regulatory frameworks and stablecoins.

Coinbase is Aiding Crypto Adoption

In the United States, Coinbase is the most popular consumer-facing crypto-asset exchange. The company, which has been in business since 2012, offers customers to purchase, sell, and store crypto-assets such as bitcoin and ethereum.

Though Coinbase is renowned for its crypto-asset exchange, the company has broader ambitions than simply facilitating the purchase and sale of cryptocurrency. The company’s declared purpose matches the main ambition of crypto asset enthusiasts: to create a new, “open financial system.”

The main aim of Coinbase, according to CEO Brian Armstrong, is to enhance economic freedom around the world.

Indian video App Raises Funding for Crypto

India is one of the countries where technology has had a strong footing over the last few years. The Asian giant accounts for some of the tech startups that are introducing new concepts and showing their intent to be one of the leading planes for technology in the globe.

Recently, an Indian short video sharing platform, Chingari, announced that it had raised a total of $19 million for its platform via a token sale. The funds will be used as an investment tool to build the Chingari community as it plans to launch its social token, $GARI, on the Solana blockchain.

Several firms took part in the token sale, and they include Republic Crypto, Galaxy Digital, Alameda Research, Solana Capital, Kraken, Blackpine, NGC, Coinfund, LD Capital, Borderless Capital, AU21, Cultur3 Capital, Long Term Ventures, Afton Capital, CSP DAO and around 15 others participated in the sale.

The video-sharing platform intends to start building infrastructures with the newly raised funds to develop $GARI, which would allow users and creators on their platform to get an e-commerce storefront for their physical good, accept payment from their followers as well as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

More About the Funds

In an interview, Chingari CEO Sumit Ghosh explained that users would receive $GARI tokens for watching or uploading videos on the site. These tokens can then be used to unlock exclusive material from a creator or to purchase a voice or video call with them. Individuals can also buy and sell videos on the platform using $GARI, which will all be converted into NFTs on the Solana blockchain.

Ghosh was reported to have said, “The future of a platform lies in its creators,” On one side, we have an immense talent pool that needs to be explored and rewarded with an ethical amount of monetization. On the other side, while crypto experiences a rapid expansion in India, $GARI is poised to make it mainstream. We are infusing the two through robust strategies and incorporation of the most-promising industry advances.”

Chingari to Spread its Tent

Chingari, which is widely considered as TikTok’s Indian rival and has a user base of 80 million people. When the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology banned the global app, TikTok, which has more than a billion users, in June of this year, Chingari successfully helped to fill the short-form video hole in the Asian country.

According to the Indian based-firm, which was founded in 2018, about 30 million monthly active users are recorded while there are about 78 million downloads. Adding cryptocurrency to its platform will undoubtedly popularise the Indian app and bring in more revenue as well as active users. Indians have become crypto enthusiasts and account for a huge part of the active users in most crypto communities. For most Indians, cryptocurrency is a full-time employment opportunity as they use it to navigate the economic distress caused by the pandemic.

With the pandemic’s devastation, practically everyone is looking for a way out of the economic quagmire created by minimal human interaction and a shrinking workforce, as seen in some countries. Everyone, on the other hand, has seen the crypto realm as a quick way out.

There has been a new revolution in the crypto sector, which is hastening the acceptance of cryptocurrency all over the world. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have risen to prominence in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, accounting for the majority of revenue earned. NFTs have given crypto a whole new dimension, transforming it into a money-making sector. It has become the new draw, attracting new participants to the crypto revolution.

Both the wealthy and those from low-income households have benefited from the NFT movement. These days, artists and other celebrities have embraced cryptocurrency because of the huge potentials found in NFTs. Over the last few months, stars like soccer player Kylian Mbappe and music legend Snoop Dogg have joined the NFT train making its popularity soar.

Suman Chellani Joins the Train

Winner of Miss India Intercontinental 2018, Suman Chellani became the latest celebrity to show interest in NFTs and recently launched her NFTs on the popular NFT marketplace, OpenSea. 

The famous model and actress are one of the many stars from India to launch NFTs in recent weeks as the country continues to be one of the most fertile grounds for cryptocurrency. 

Chellani is widely known in her country as a popular show host and anchor and has thousands of credits to her name, as well as other successful ventures. Her foray into the world of NFTs shows her ambition and determination to spread the adoption of cryptocurrency in her country.

NFT Surge is Anticipated

While NFTs are not a foreign concept for Indians as several Bollywood stars and legends such as Amitabh Bachan and Sunny Leone have made a move to introduce NFTs to their fans, the adoption was still relatively slow and not as anticipated. 

With beauty queen Chellani joining the trend, it is widely anticipated that more Indians will move towards NFTs in the coming days. Indians are known for their talent, and NFTs will undoubtedly prove to be a game-changer if widely accepted by the country.
