Cryptocurrency Wallet ZenGo Adds Support for Facebook's Libra Testnet

ZenGo, a non-custodial keyless cryptocurrency wallet solution, has announced this week it added support for Facebook’s Libra testnet.

According to the announcement ZenGo’s users will now be able to send, receive, and store Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency as if it was any other crypto. The difference, as ZenGo warns, is that “testnet funds don’t hold any real value and are only for testing purposes.”

As the post notes, Facebook is developing its own cryptocurrency wallet, Calibra, that’ll allow its 2.4 billion active users to store, send, and receive Libra tokens. IT will, however, be a custodial wallet Facebook controls, and that’ll require users to go through a know your customer check to be used.

The Israeli cryptocurrency wallet provider adds:

If you would like to experiment with Libra, you can turn on Libra testnet from the [ZenGo] Account tab in the wallet. Once you turn on the feature, make sure your wallet is backed up, and we’ll send you your first Libra

ZenGo further warned Libra’s testnet is in an experimental phase, which means the network may be reset for maintenance or upgrades, which could see “all the data on the network” get reset, including balances.

The non-custodial keyless cryptocurrency wallet is only available for iOS devices, even though ZenGo is looking to launch a version for Android devices in the near future. Its users can also buy BTC, ETH, and BNB with their credit cards or using Apply Pay.
