Source: Giddy

Giddy, the self-custody smart wallet that connects crypto holders to DeFi earning opportunities, is integrating the leading payment provider Stripe to enable a seamless way to buy cryptocurrency directly from the Giddy mobile app.

Giddy’s integration with Stripe aims to make cryptocurrencies more accessible to the general public by expanding fiat-to-crypto purchase options with an easy and reliable payment gateway.

Giddy users can select Stripe as the crypto purchase option to fund their self-custody crypto wallet in a seamless experience. Stripe integration enables buying crypto with bank transfers, cards, Apple Pay®, and other methods supported by the payment gateway.

“Like most people, my journey into crypto began with Bitcoin. But buying self-custody crypto is far too difficult to figure out - even today,” said Giddy CEO Eric Parker. “I’m excited to announce this integration with Stripe because it’s one of the best ways to buy crypto. Stripe is fast, easy, and actually works! It’s an amazing way for new users to get started and for experienced users to grab more crypto at the speed of the markets.”

Giddy is also launching native Bitcoin network support, expanding Giddy’s ground-breaking multi-factor private key solution to support Bitcoin, the world’s most popular cryptocurrency, in addition to Ethereum, Arbitrum, and Polygon networks, with more on the way.

Giddy’s smart wallet is known for its unique security features for self-custody, wherein a user's private key is separated into multiple encrypted shares and linked to hardware and software that only they control. This way, the wallet remains safe and recoverable in case one share of the private key is lost or compromised because multiple shares are required to access funds, and any one share does not contain the private key.

In addition to enhancing security, Giddy significantly simplifies crypto for everyday users. Its user-friendly mobile app integrates various functions, allowing users to purchase, send, trade, earn, and shop using cryptocurrencies. Download the Giddy mobile app today on the App Store and on Google Play.
