Coinone, a popular South Korean bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchange has announced the release of the iOS version of its exchange application using facial recognition.

The iOS launch comes after the recent successful rollout of the mobile app’s Android version. This now enables Coinone to provide their complete set of cryptocurrency services optimized for the majority of all smart devices.

The most important innovation of the Coinone iOS app combines security and convenience. First, it fully supports biometric account functions including Face ID and Touch ID, thus greatly enhancing user security. It also provides a secure and easy login environment by blocking the access of others through the principle of using 1 device – 1 account.

Users of the iOS app will also see optimized chart functions so traders can analyze historical data as well as current price information wherever they may be. The app additionally includes the “OneTalk” feature, which provides information on account security, blockchains as well as real-time support.

Chan Myung Hun, CEO of Coinone said:

“Coin One Mobile App is focused on enhancing user convenience based on the stability of service. The launch of iOS version is an important point that evolves Coinone’s differentiated experience value. I look forward to it.”

“The iOS version includes all the know-how gained from launching the Android version, as well as the experience of running the exchange, and focused on improving security, user interface, and design.”
