MogoCrypto is here (and what it's all about)

It’s official! We’re currently rolling out invites to MogoCrypto, an easy way to buy and sell bitcoin in Canada. Be sure to sign up for a free MogoAccount to get on our invite list for MogoCrypto. For the average Canadian, owning bitcoin can be complicated, frustrating, and costly. You have to deal with companies that may not be around tomorrow. It can be difficult to sell your cryptocurrency holdings and withdraw Canadian dollars — your money takes too long to show up in your bank account, and sometimes you just can’t withdraw your money (which means your money is stuck there). As a publicly traded company trusted by over 500,000 members, we saw an opportunity to bring a new level of convenience and accessibility to bitcoin ownership for Canadians. With MogoCrypto, our aim is to build a new way for Canadians to buy and sell cryptocurrency — one that’s simple to use, offers fast and free funding and withdrawals, and is designed for everyone. How it works Getting started with MogoCrypto is quick and simple. Sign up for a free MogoAccount in 3 minutes. You can get verified right away, add your Canadian bank account to MogoCrypto,

Monitor your finances to protect against identity fraud

Protect your passwords. Shield the PIN pad while using an ABM. Sounds familiar? When it comes to protecting yourself from identity theft, are these enough? Time for a reality check — in our digital world, no one can really prevent identity theft. We enjoy the convenience of services like Uber, Amazon, Netflix and Airbnb, but we’re exposing also ourselves to greater risk for identity theft and identity fraud. Time for a reality check Even if you don’t have any online activity, but only have a bank account, credit bureaus already have your personal information. There is as high likelihood that some of your personal data has already been hacked. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre recorded more than 20,000 victims of identity theft in 2014 alone, with losses amounting to more than $10 million. This doesn’t include the 95% of estimated unreported fraud cases. The cost of identity fraud Every day, we’re hearing about data breaches by major companies. A stolen identity could seriously derail your financial health. It can take years to recover from identity fraud. You may be forced to put your life plans on hold while you try to salvage a damaged credit rating. Imagine
