Abra adds in-app support to "thousands" of US banks

According to Coindesk, cryptocurrency wallet and investment app Abra said on Thursday that its app now allows users to connect accounts from "thousands" of US banks. This extended banking option comes from integration with Plaid, a financial technology service that allows applications to connect to a user's bank account using an API. So far, Abra users in the US and EU have the option to fund their wallets through bank transfers. With this new feature, they will let banks fund their purchases within the app.
