Conio. Digital Assets tecnology.
Founded in 2015 in San Francisco, from the idea of Italian entrepreneurs, Conio launched the first Bitcoin Wallet for smartphone in Italy whith a mission: to make crypto and digital payments within everyone’s reach. We decided, in fact, to patent a multi-signature custody solution, thus making easier and safer the custody of digital currencies. From the beginning, we gained trust of institutional investors, including important Italian banks which have partially funded the project and established consolidated partnerships. At present, besides having reached 300,000 customers, we provide banks and financial institutions with integrated solutions for the management of cryptocurrencies and Digital Assets.

In the United States of America, the patent for the exclusive design of the Conio Wallet was formally requested. In addition to that patent, obtained in July 2018, a further patent specifically related to graphic interface of the App was requested and granted in November 2018.
Patent for the Multi-signature custody solution.
In US, the patent application for the multi-signature custody solution is filed (recognized in January 2020).
