Fiat purchase does not work
I was looking forward to using this wallet, because I think the developers have the right approach for making cryptocurrency accessible to more people. Unfortunately, as it currently stands, it failed spectacularly to clear the very first hurdle.
I was unable to purchase coins with normal money. I have tried using ApplePay with two different debit cards as well as the ACH option. Both debit card transactions failed repeatedly and their payment partner, Wyre, was unable to link to my bank account. I even tried sending money to my address from the Kyberswap desktop site, which still failed. I suspect that there is a problem with Wyre. If I am using it incorrectly, the payment widget is very unintuitive. I didn’t even realize there is a sign in button until after a few attempts, and it makes no difference.
I have not tried to send currency from another wallet, but I still need to convert fiat money to crypto and not being able to do so in app defeats the purpose of getting new users (like me) involved easily.
Until this problem is fixed I cannot recommend this app. I can’t even evaluate the rest of the app because I need coins to try out all of the functions. I think it looks nice but I can’t use it. If the developers of Argent or maybe Wyre can fix this, I will be happy to re-evaluate.
If it helps, I am using an iPhone SE (2016 version) running iOS 13.4.1 in the United States.
Argent Gets Crypto Storage Right
This is the rational way for average consumers to approach the new paradigm of self-sovereign custody over crypto bear-assets.
As a consumer/user of crypto tokens you have three options:
1. Trust only yourself (if you forget your password and lose your recovery phrase your funds are lost forever)
2. Trust an institution. This is the same as a bank. *Most* people trust (*some*) bank to have their money upon request.
3. Trust your friends and family. *Most* people have at least some friends or family who they can trust to independently confirm that “you are you” and not a random criminal pretending to be you if/(when) you get locked out of your account because you forgot your password.
*These trusted people need not know or regularly associate with one another.
IMO The future of money is crypto. And personal finance security methods will default to the current model (#2, leaving the money with a big institution, and ideally being insured against losses).
But at least you have a choice now if you don’t want go that way. You can trust your friends and family (#3) or only trust yourself (#1).
Argent gives you that freedom of choice and that’s really cool. But choose wisely... ; )
I’ve used plenty of mobile wallets and Argent is by far the best one I’ve come across. Had an issue so I started a support ticket pretty late at night(USA) and had a clear and helpful response the next morning. Just did my first purchase from fiat to DAI and it went super smooth over Apple Pay. The fees were decent and I’m happy to support this company, especially since they eat the gas fees for you!
It would be really nice if they had an Apple Watch app that showed me the current balance.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
