Vivid opens up to investing in cryptocurrencies in France

Paris, April 1st 2021 - Vivid, announces the launch of its Crypto Pockets in France and Spain. This new feature allows Vivid customers to invest into cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Euthereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, BAT, Cardano, Chainlink, EOS, NEM et ALGO from 0,01€. This portfolio, available 24/7, will be expanded in the coming months.

This new feature can be used by customers in the following way
●      When users open a Crypto Pocket, they are provided with information related to the workings of cryptocurrencies and fractional investing to guide them and increase their knowledge.
●      Users are asked to answer a 2-3 minute test intended to evaluate their level of knowledge and investment experience. This test allows Vivid to evaluate whether or not the user is able to use this feature based on their knowledge.
●      To support its users, Vivid provides a 24/7 customer service. 

Once access to Crypto Pockets has been established, users can view the entire portfolio of available cryptocurrencies, learn about the specifics of each one, view charts analyzing the evolution of buying and selling prices. Customers will also be able to view the evolution of the market price in real time, in order to observe movement in their investments. 

On these issues, Vivid collaborates with CM-Equity AG, a financial institution located in Germany and regulated by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). 

Founded in Berlin by Alexander Emeshev and Artem Yamanov, Vivid launched in Germany and France in 2020 before expanding into Spain in January.
