Paul Puey: What You Need to Know About Crypto Self-Custody [VIDEO]

Edge is currently my favorite wallet that we recommend at The Crypto Vigilante (SUBSCRIBE), especially for beginners. 

Before Anarchapulco, I had another enlightening discussion with Paul Puey, Founder and CEO of Edge, which allows users to buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrency with a high level of security and privacy. 

The Edge mobile app supports the leading cryptocurrencies, providing a large selection of assets for trading. With over a dozen integrated exchange partners, users can also buy and sell crypto from dozens of payment methods in hundreds of countries. 

Built on the open-source Edge Security SDK, the Edge mobile app fully encrypts all user data providing a level of privacy unmatched by any conventional tech company. 

Government agencies have already contacted Edge, attempting to subpoena information about its users. However, Edge continually refutes them as they do not store any personal information in their servers except for encrypted keys, unlike even other non-custodial services where data gets transmitted to servers. 

Here is their recent announcement… 

Official Response: Request to Freeze Canadian Edge Users’ Accounts

In the wake of ongoing turmoil taking place in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland has requested, via the Emergencies Act, that various financial services companies freeze accounts of those linked to protesters occupying the region, as well as those providing funding to the protests, but not present physically.

Regardless of whether the protests resonate with individuals or not, financial seizure is an unprecedented action that must be taken seriously. It’s with great consideration that we would like to share our official response to the request that Canadian users’ Edge accounts be frozen:

And most importantly, we can’t even if we wanted to.

Now that’s my kind of company. 

Of course, Edge supports my favorite controversial assets, including Monero (XMR) and even the deplorable and widely delisted Bitcoin SV (BSV). 

Edge is exceptionally user-friendly compared to all the wallets I’ve seen, so it’s excellent for newbies. 

Setting up an account is easy since the Edge UI uses a login and password rather than mnemonic seed phrases, which can be cumbersome to manage. Your seed phrase is still always recoverable within your account. 

During my recent interview with Paul Puey, we spoke about everything from government and politics, KYC and fiat, to Monero (XMR) and Pirate Chain (ARRR), which Paul assures me is coming soon to Edge. They are just waiting on some support from the Pirate Chain developers. 

Our conversation explored the open-source philosophy, the differences between Edge vs. Exodus, the unique way Edge handles login credentials encryption, IP validation, VPN questions, and more.
