PUBLISH launches crypto wallet for the media industry with plans to integrate DID service
1 April 2021
PUBLISH is excited to announce the launch of PUBLISHwallet, a cryptocurrency wallet for the new media industry, including news content creators and consumers.
Available as an Android app on the Google Play Store, PUBLISHwallet supports Luniverse-based NEWS tokens, with support for Ethereum-based NEWS tokens to be added in the near future. An iOS version is expected to be released in April.
In addition to being able to send and receive tokens, PUBLISHwallet users can view near-real time cryptocurrency market data and read about the latest developments at PUBLISH and across the PUBLISH network.
In the second half of 2021, PUBLISH plans to integrate its decentralized identification service into PUBLISHwallet, allowing users to conveniently and securely access a number of services that accept DIDs (decentralized identifiers) as a means of identity verification.
PUBLISHwallet is expected to play a key role in enabling PUBLISHprotocol, a blockchain-based protocol that aims to improve journalistic transparency and financial sustainability in the media industry.
Commenting on the launch of PUBLISHwallet, Sonny Kwon, the CEO of PUBLISH, said, “We look forward to receiving feedback from users of PUBLISHwallet about how we can improve the service.”
