Frequently Asked Questions
Abra provides users with a mobile app that enables them to buy and sell digital currency through a digital wallet (i.e., the Abra wallet). When a user buys digital currency (with cash, a bank transfer or a card instrument), the value (or balance) is stored in their Abra wallet.
Once a user’s Abra wallet is funded, they can send peer-to-peer payments instantly to anyone in the world, or buy from an online merchant who accepts Abra as a form of payment. If an Abra user receives a payment, he/she can withdraw the balance in cash or to their bank account. Abra’s mobile app serves to connect Abra users with a network of physical locations where they can either add or withdraw cash to/from their Abra wallet.
