USAA partners with Coinbase to add bitcoin balance check option

Now Accepting | November 11, 2015 By:

Coinbase announced that USAA has launched a pilot program that will let some of its customers view their Coinbase bitcoin balances through their USAA online and mobile accounts.

USAA framed the pilot – which only allows view-only balance checks with no transaction support at this time – as a means to further experiment with the technology.

This pilot was rolled out to USAA employees in September and is now being extended to a select group of USAA members. Declining to offer specific numbers, the company said that it was choosing customers that have expressed an interest in bitcoin in the past.

USAA is an American financial services company. Coinbase is a bitcoin wallet and exchange company headquartered in San Francisco.
