Bitcoin IRA offers biometric trading
20 November 2019 11:00 GMT

Bitcoin IRA, a secure digital asset IRA technology company that allows clients to purchase cryptocurrencies for their retirement accounts, today announced Advanced Biometric Security (ABS) is now available on its 24/7 self-trading retirement platform.

The ABS biometric security process uses machine learning, face-based biometrics and verification to confirm the identity of the person performing self-trades on the Bitcoin IRA platform. The ABS feature goes beyond traditional authentication methods to deliver a significantly higher level of assurance and establish a trusted digital identity.

Advanced Biometric Security feature is available today to all individuals completing an application online and it will be expanded to self-trading later in September.

This new feature follows the company's announcement in June of its partnership with BitGo Trust Company. As part of the announcement, Bitcoin IRA, with custody provided by BitGo Trust Company, now provides its clients 30% lower custody fees. BitGo Trust Company carries $100 million custody insurance, military-grade security with SOC 2 Type 2 certification and bank-grade Class III vaults.

Chris Kline, COO of Bitcoin IRA said:

"Security is of paramount importance to self-directed cryptocurrency investors. In addition to our world-class custody security offering with BitGo Trust our new feature elevates the standard in the industry by going beyond traditional security methods."
