Foundation Devices, a company that specializes in Bitcoin-related tools, has announced the release of its Envoy mobile app as a separate Bitcoin mobile wallet with improved features for managing accounts and privacy.
According to a press release sent to Bitcoin Magazine, this update is part of Foundation’s mission to make digital independence more accessible and to reduce the barriers to self-custody of bitcoin. The new Envoy app introduces what Foundation calls “Envoy Magic Backups,” a simplified setup and backup process for mobile wallets.

Zach Herbert, Co-Founder and CEO of Foundation, expressed his excitement about the update, stating, “With this update, we are excited to bring our best-in-class design, intuitive and approachable user experience, and peace of mind to smartphone users across the globe — no Passport required.”
In addition to the introduction of the Envoy app, Foundation has also announced a price reduction for its Passport hardware wallet, now priced at $199. Customers who ordered within the last 90 days are eligible to claim a $50 gift card for the Foundation store.
