Filipino-made interconnected ecosystem Tetrix Network is introducing a crypto wallet that allows users to store, manage, and exchange various cryptocurrencies and digital assets in one simple browser extension.
Called “Pitaka,” the crypto wallet enables users to hold various cryptocurrencies, allowing them to make transactions to any blockchain address.
It also provides users with an entry point into the emerging world of decentralized finance or DeFi, and supports Google Chrome and Chromium-based browser, Brave.
“Pitaka is a fully decentralized crypto wallet that runs on Tetrix, the first omnichain protocol that directly communicates across all blockchains,” Tetrix chief revenue officer Felix Asuncion said.
“Our main motivation in building Pitaka is to create a product that each and every Filipino will be proud of. As we say, “Made by Filipinos, for the world,” he added.
Tetrix said users of Pitaka can create multiple accounts and select which account to use for sending payments, storing funds, and interacting with decentralized applications.
It said Pitaka can store non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and digital collectibles, and currently supports more than 18,000 cryptocurrencies built on top of 25 blockchains.
According to Tetrix, development of Pitaka’s mobile app which will support more cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and XRP down the road has already started development.
