What Makes Credit Union Crypto Different

Cryptocurrency is a new type of money that’s changing how we think about finance. Usually, buying and selling crypto means using special websites or apps, which can be tricky and sometimes unsafe. Unlike those digital-only cryptocurrency exchanges, WeStreet Credit Union is a traditional, federally-regulated credit union staffed by member service professionals. We are a national credit union, and held to higher standards than any of the crypto exchanges; giving you confidence that we will never do anything illicit with your crypto.

What is a Crypto Custodian?

A financial custodian is a type of financial organization that holds assets and securities for investors. Utilizing a crypto custodian significantly reduces the risk of theft or loss of your digital assets. Rather than storing physical items like stocks, bonds, or cash, the custodian securely stores your cryptocurrency. This is were WeStreet helps you; let us be your trusted crypto custodian.
