Luno’s BTC Savings wallet allows customers to earn interest on their Bitcoin holdings by saving it in a separate wallet.
All features are available on Luno’s mobile app for iOS and Android, and on desktop.
Luno ensures that 95% of its crypto is stored in “deep freeze” multisignature wallets protected by various encryption layers. Luno works with regulators in the markets in which it operates (Malaysian operations are regulated by the Securities Commission Malaysia) and supports progressive regulation of the cryptocurrency industry. Luno has implemented robust AML/CFT measures, which include a mandatory, tiered approach to KYC, registration with local financial intelligence authorities, and the reporting of suspicious activity and transactions.
