is a new web wallet that intends to merge high-level security, an intuitive interface, and support for multiple cryptocurrencies. The user wallets are backed up every thirty minutes, and support for linking wallets to social media accounts is available. Private keys are not sent to the server except in an unreadable encrypted format, with the entire program being open source, and hosting being available on any server of the users’ choosing. It requires no software to download, no synchronization with a blockchain, and has a focus on an intuitive interface.
Omniwallet is pre-disposed to work with Bitcoin and Mastercoin, with native support for smart properties along with user created currencies developed through the Master Protocol. It intends to branch out to other alt-coins that are not created through Mastercoin, such as Litecoin and others. Caution should still be excercized whilst using Omniwallet, especially with large sums, as it entered beta July 1st, 2014. The team looks forward to creating crowdsale pages, developing exchanges between different kinds of user coins, and contiuing crowd-sourced security testing.
The Master Protocol and Omniwallet are bringing both the development of user currencies, and smart contracts, to the masses of the Bitcoin community. The goal is to make this easy and not require the need for individuals to test software on their computer. This could signal a new era in cryptocurrency development with currencies being so simple to create that they might be used in theme parks as tokens for rides or as in-store credit when exchanging items in brick and mortar establishments. The availability of usage of smart contracts expands the range of what is possible with Bitcoin and other currencies, coupled with the development of user currencies, cryptocurrencies may become the means by which all such transactions occur. Whether buying a home, paying for services or redeeming member rewards at a restaurant, the Master Protocol and Omniwallet bring Bitcoin into a new, interesting, realm. If the idea succeeds, and provides the usability it’s developers intend, it seems likely to bump up the price, and stability, of both Mastercoin and Bitcoin itself.
