Katana Cryptographic, the company behind Samourai Wallet, has raised $100,000 in funding from Cypherpunk Holdings, CoinDesk writes. The company has created the Android app—Samourai Wallet—to provide better privacy for bitcoin transactions. According to Katana’s CEO Keonne Rodriguez, the company has no plans on introducing other coins, or “other layers of bitcoin” at this point.
The wallet provides privacy enhancing services for a small fee in bitcoin. The services, for instance, obscure the provenance of someone’s bitcoin. It has also designed a bitcoin node called Dojo that works with the wallet.
