Mobile banking platform BlockBank, which combines decentralized finance (DeFi) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology, on Tuesday (Oct. 26) announced it will unveil its mobile and web-based app by the end of this year, according to a Bitcoin.com report.
BlockBank’s app will bring together traditional finance and DeFi in a secure platform that includes the Robo Advisor AI-powered resource for newcomers to the cryptocurrency market and a tiered rewards system that gives users up to 20 percent APY.
BlockBank will continue to build on the Robo Advisor’s capabilities and functionalities from its start as an educational resource that offers users a tailored experience on the BlockBank platform that learns and grows with customers to understand their habits and risk profiles to craft actionable insights.
The Robo Advisor will also reduce how much time users spend on market research and enable automated order management and execution, portfolio creation and management and more.
All BlockBank app users can earn high APY on staked crypto tokens, including Bitcoin, most ERC 20 tokens and BlockBank’s native utility token, $BBANK. The app also features a suite of decentralized applications (dApps) and gold and silver purchases with cryptocurrency.
The BlockBank app will be available for download in both the Apple and Android Play store.
