Product Update: Multi-Signature Wallets and Dynamic Wallet Addresses

January 28, 2015

Multi-Signature Wallets.  As part of our commitment to providing the most secure bitcoin wallet, Xapo is happy to announce the expansion of our multi-signature architecture to all Xapo Wallets. Our multi-signature wallet addresses require transaction authorization from at least 2 of 3 private keys from different Xapo sites around the world. This change leverages our best-in-class bitcoin storage architecture, and it is designed to improve significantly the security of your wallet address.

Dynamic Wallet Addresses.  We now provide all customers with dynamic bitcoin addresses for their Xapo Wallet. This is designed to provide increased privacy to our users by generating a new wallet address each time funds are received. Any previous addresses generated (including your original) can still receive bitcoins and will be linked to the same Xapo Wallet. But now you can choose to provide a new address following each transaction, so your private balances are not publicly visible.
