Bitcoin wallet provider, merchant directory, and digital asset-based applications developer Airbitz has announced a partnership that will deploy the Airbitz Edge Security Platform on Augur’s decentralized prediction market platform. What this means for Augur’s users is that they will have the option to sign in to and access the Augur platform with an Edge secure username and password, without having to worry about the complexities of associated with storing and remembering encryption keys.
The Edge Security Platform is a highly secure platform which automatically encrypts, backs up, and synchronizes private keys and account data across multiple devices. It is designed to allow users to easily operate the application via a simple interface and quickly connect to decentralized applications.
For Augur, the appeal of the Airbitz Edge Security Platform lies in its ability to secure and store private keys and account data.
“One of the biggest usability issues with decentralized apps at the moment is that there’s no good way to store private keys and account data without resorting to a centralized server: Airbitz solves this problem for Augur,” said Augur Core Developer Joey Krug in a statement.
