Xapo, a Bitcoin wallet and vault, has officially launched

Wence Casares (who I interviewed for Chapter 2 in GCON) announced today that his team has officially launched Xapo, a Bitcoin wallet and vault.  I have tried it out and can attest that the sign-up process is quick and actually works — this is great news for the security side of the ecosystem.

They also announced that Xapo has raised $20 million in funding (first-round) from Benchmark Capital, Fortress Investment Group and Ribbit Captial.
