The Israeli startup launched by Gary Benattar, Omer Shlomovits, Ouriel Ohayon and Tal Be'ery is deploying a new generation cryptowallet which notably offers the possibility of connecting your wallet to the world of Web3 in a secure way.

“We started with this approach of simplifying the creation of the Wallet, which is usually a rather complex and intimidating step”, explains Ouriel Ohayon, CEO of ZenGo. “ZenGo is a Wallet that covers the essentials of cryptocurrencies and financial functions. You can buy, sell, exchange cryptos and place them in interest rates. »

If ZenGo is indeed a wallet for storing and exchanging cryptocurrencies, the platform has just extended its functionalities in its latest update. “From now on, we can use ZenGo to connect to Web3 applications, so buy and transfer NFTs, or participate in decentralized finance. »

The application offers a cryptowallet without private keys but based on facial recognition technology, biometric authentication. Over the years, the startup has expanded internationally and increasingly affects French-speaking countries. “Amazingly, we are becoming quite big in French-speaking countries, while the app is in English. We are going to localize the application in French because too many users are asking us for it”.
