2021 ️June Update

Bamboo post

During June we continued to build and grow as the market cooled down. This has given us the much-needed space to focus on the product and shift to a new custody solution. As well as this we have been busy building our new website.

Now it’s the end of the financial year, we would also like to remind regular users and SMSF users that you can export transaction data from Bamboo for tax purposes.

📈📉 Market performance

Digital currency markets have continued to cool off, giving investors the perfect opportunity to set up their investment plans during decreased volatility.

In wider news, El Salvador has become the first country to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender. A massive landmark for the industry.

In terms of performance, we have seen Bitcoin and Ethereum retrace 5% and 20% respectively. With Gold and Silver both retracing 7%. We remind long-term investors that monthly movements are normal and that dollar-cost averaging mitigates the effect over the longer term.

🔒 Fireblocks Custody Announcement

Our exchange partnership Mine Digital, one of Australia’s most innovative digital asset platforms now uses Fireblocks to hold custody of their assets as well as Bamboo’s assets. This shift ensures all digital assets held by Bamboo will be stored safely and to the highest possible standards. Fireblocks is one of the world’s leading providers of crypto custody, with multi-layered security, regular penetration testing and cutting edge technology that leads the charge when it comes to digital asset custody.

💰 Tax time!

Tax time is here. This means you will need to declare any capital gains/losses to your accountant! To pull the data from your Bamboo app, go to settings, then to ‘request transaction history’ and we will email all of your investment data for the past financial year. It’s that easy.
