Seize the moment

Because Abra is a bitcoin wallet, our underlying currency is bitcoin. When you use Abra to invest in ether, you’ll still be holding bitcoin, but you’ll have a contract that will give you exposure to the price changes of ether. If the value of ether goes up, you’ll gain more bitcoin. If the value of ether goes down you’ll lose bitcoin. Either way, the amount of ether you’re holding will stay the same.

When you’re ready, you can redeem your ether investment for bitcoin or US dollars and then withdraw the proceeds to your bank, or use another supported withdrawal mechanism.

In this way, Abra enables you to invest in ether without creating a separate wallet, managing separate keys, or figuring out how to buy ether on an exchange.

We believe this is the most convenient way to seize new cryptocurrency investment opportunities quickly, easily and securely – all in one place.
