A privacy-focused Bitcoin app, Samourai Wallet, got its first round of venture investment, $100,000 from Cypherpunk Holdings. Cypherpunk, a venture fund listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker symbol HODL, was set up as an investment vehicle to support privacy-enhancing technology.

Samourai Wallet for Android was designed with privacy in mind. It offers a privacy enhancing feature for free, as well as a paid option. Samourai has 27,000 users, and its first full version is expected to be released this month.
