4 Million Bitcoin.com Wallets and We’re Just Getting Started
The Bitcoin.com Wallet launched back in August 2017 and ever since then the wallet has seen significant development and gathered lots of attention. There have been 4 million wallets created so far and we’re thrilled to celebrate this watershed moment with the crypto community. There’s a bunch of reasons why the Bitcoin.com Wallet is so popular and one of them is accessibility, as the light client is available for Mac, Windows, Linux, Apple iOS, and Android operating systems. Additionally, the wallet is not only great for veterans but is also perfect for beginners who are just learning the basics of crypto. The user interface (UI) is very easy to use, which makes storing, sending, and receiving bitcoins a breeze.
The wallet allows users to store bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin core (BTC) in a noncustodial fashion. Bitcoin.com Wallet users also have the ability to purchase both cryptocurrencies within the wallet’s UI. With this specific buying service, users don’t have to deal with depositing money on cryptocurrency exchanges. These features alone barely scrape the surface when it comes to our open source wallet as there are many more attributes. For instance, our wallet is fully compatible with the BIP70 payment system and the light client can be used to pay Bitpay invoices with ease. There’s also an abundance of resources like direct access to news.Bitcoin.com articles, price charts, helpful tools, a BCH faucet, and Bitcoin Cash Games.
“The Bitcoin.com team is proud to have helped bring more economic freedom to individuals across the world,” explained Bitcoin.com’s CEO Roger Ver after crossing the wallet creation milestone. Ver added:
We look forward to helping create the next 40 million wallets, followed by 400 million.
More Wallet Features Coming Soon
The 4 million wallets created so far is a great milestone, but we also know things are just getting started as far as cryptocurrency adoption is concerned. We hope to serve billions of individuals someday with our wallet solution and teach them the great benefits of bitcoin cash, and how to store cryptocurrencies in a safe manner. The more people storing bitcoin on their own, the better, leading to fewer people storing funds with custodial wallet solutions and centralized exchanges that are prone to hacks. In addition to the simple to use light client, the Bitcoin.com Wallet has a slew of other features planned for the future. One of the planned additions will be the implementation of Cashshuffle, an application that allows users to mix coins with other participants which in turn bolsters BCH fungibility.
At Bitcoin.com, we believe that Satoshi Nakamoto’s creation is one of the most important inventions in history alongside the printing press, combustible engine, and the internet. Everyone can use bitcoin cash and send the decentralized cryptocurrency to anyone without restriction from any individual, corporation, or government. With BCH, users can also send funds faster than lightning for less than a penny for every transaction. The Bitcoin.com Wallet helps the evolution of money and in time we hope the BCH revolution will bring economic freedom to the masses.
So when the mainstream catches a strong whiff of the technological and monetary innovations bitcoin cash provides, the Bitcoin.com Wallet will be there to serve their demands.
