What makes Plutus unique?
Plutus has learned from the past mistakes of other cryptocurrency services, namely the mantra: “If you store your coins on an exchange, they aren’t YOUR coins.”
This is why Plutus is quite possibly the only crypto-fiat and fiat-crypto gateway where your cryptocurrency balance is NEVER stored on any exchange or centralised server.
Instead, all coins travel directly to the user’s cryptocurrency address (or your own address, depending on whether you are buying or selling cryptocurrencies).
At the same time, our handling of fiat deposits is managed by 3rd parties (and is directly tied to a blockchain-based verification mechanism).
This makes events like the “Mt.Gox Disaster” impossible by design, because there are no user cryptocurrency balances whatsoever.
Note: To boost the security of your assets, we recommend you purchase a hardware wallet such as Ledger or Trezor.
Several of our users have inquired about the legal status of Pluton (PLU) and how this affects the future of Plutus.
Quick summary: We have confirmation from our legal counsel that Plutus is best defined as a utility token, loyalty point, and in-app reward that exists for use inside the Plutus ecosystem.
For more information, please see our brand new dedicated blog on this matter:
