Crypto deposits and withdrawals aren't available on the App yet.
The crypto wallet feature will be added very soon.
The reason for this is, the AKT.io application is being developed to the highest levels of security with KYC verifications assured by Onfido and a strong custodian storage solution and proper licensing.
We are working hard to provide a high level of Custodian based security as well as on chain, 2FA verification or anti-phishing solutions for the user.
This also makes the Wealth Hub a perfect tool for security as the amount shown by your wallet is a reflection of what you own in a "Hot Wallet", while the actual coins/tokens are stored in "Cold Storage" in a master custodial wallet. This custodial wallet is not accessible without a clear instruction from the owner in the event of a withdrawal. To perform such tasks, the user will need a whitelisted address, a confirmed verification code and an element that can only be confirmed by you, the user (e.g. face recognition).
This enables us to provide our users with a strong security infrastructure to prevent the loss of your coins/tokens. To ensure that these security features are implemented in the best possible manner, the withdrawal feature will not be available for now.
For now, transactions are carried out using an IBAN which is linked to a classic centralised ecosystem through our banking partner Modulr Finance which allows us to provide a very high level of security.
