The second bank in the US, Bank of America will patent a security system for crypto-wallets.
The interface is designed to enhance security by allowing a user to enter various passwords to open different tiers of their crypto wallet.
“Through the digital wallet interface, a user of the user computing device may be able to partition digital currency holdings into one or more differentiated storage compartments or tiers. Each of the one or more compartments may be password secured and may only permit access to the amount of digital currency holdings specified by the user.”
Mastercard is looking for staffers for its crypto development team.
