Since launching in 2018, ZenGo has raised $24 million from Insight Partners and Samsung NEXT, among others. The Israeli startup started by Gary Benattar, Omer Shlomovits, Ouriel Ohayon and Tal Be’ery is implementing a new generation crypto wallet that specifically offers the ability to connect your wallet to the Web3 world in a secure way.
“We started with this approach to simplify the creation of the wallet, which is usually quite a complicated and intimidating step,” explains Ouriel Ohayon, CEO of ZenGo. “ZenGo is a wallet that covers the essentials of cryptocurrencies and financial functions. You can buy, sell, exchange cryptos and put them in interest rates. »
If ZenGo is indeed a wallet for storing and exchanging cryptocurrencies, the platform has just expanded its functionalities in its latest update. “From now on, we can use ZenGo to connect to Web3 applications, so buy and transfer NFT or participate in decentralized finance. »
The application offers a crypto wallet without private keys, but based on facial recognition technology, biometric authentication. Over the years, the startup has expanded internationally and is increasingly affecting French-speaking countries. “It’s amazing that we’re getting quite big in French-speaking countries while the app is in English. We will localize the app in French because too many users are asking us for it.”
