Gem, Expresscoin Partner On Secure Bitcoin Wallet

Venice-based Gem and Santa Monica-based Expresscoin said this week that they are in a partnership, which will offer up GEM's secure wallet API to Gem's customers. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Gem develops APIs which allow developers to create and integrate Bitcoin applications in an easy way; Expresscoin allows users to purchase Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Blackcoin, and Darkcoin. The new relationship means that users of Expresscoin--rather than having to bring their own Bitcoin wallet--can by default pick Gem's wallet software.
