At the end of spring 2017, a little over a year ago, our company was launching a new piece of software that is essential not only to the Bitcoin ecosystem, but also to our future as a key player in the industry. The Bitcoin.com Wallet was launched on June 14th 2017, and since then it has already achieved a massive 2.5 million wallets created, and is managing over 10% of all bitcoin cash (BCH) transactions.
Personal Economic Freedom
With the imminent separation of the blockchains that would introduce Bitcoin Cash to the world, we needed to make sure there would be all the necessary pieces for all the users that still wanted to use Bitcoin as cash.
This thought, along with the mission to pave the road for the planet to achieve personal economic freedom, is not only what propelled us into launching a new wallet right before BCH independence day, but it is also what keeps us wanting to improve this and so many other products; and heck, it also gives us the energy to dedicate our lives to this mission.
No Spoilers, Download Today for Exciting Developments Ahead
We forked our wallet from the already excellent Copay wallet by Bitpay. We think features offered by the Copay wallet, and thus the Bitcoin.com wallet, align with our mission to allow economic freedom: from a shared wallet that you can have with a friend, to the Bitpay protocol integration that is already so successful and allows so many companies to take BCH payments.
It is in this same line that we are improving Bitcoin.com’s wallet. We have a very busy schedule ahead of us. We will continue to improve our wallet, empowering real world uses so you can continue using Bitcoin as cash.
I cannot mention many spoilers as to what we will release. Download the Bitcoin.com wallet and find out for yourself. We assure you that our upcoming developments will excite you, and that the Bitcoin.com wallet will evolve more than the fiat in your pocket.
Happy independence day!
