BitPay partners with Glidera to offer users of Copay in US to buy/sell Bitcoin

Bitcoin technology and payment processing company BitPay has teamed up with Bitcoin exchange Glidera to enable users of its open source Bitcoin wallet Copay in a number of US states to buy or sell Bitcoin.

The functionality, still in beta, is available in the newest version (1.3.1) of Copay.

In addition, the latest version of Copay offers users to sweep paper wallet funds. In case they store private keys and funds with any standard or BIP 38 encrypted paper wallets, they can now sweep them directly into a Copay wallet.
