What’s so different about the new Bitcoin wallet

After a couple of bugs that affected several Bitcoin wallets during the last weeks, some Bitcoiners became disappointed with the services they were using. That’s why the creators of the new web wallet called are surfing this wave and launching a service with new perks.

The website Coindesk highlighted the service this week as a high-security wallet. Although is still lacking a mobile app, the design of the browser-based version is quite clean and intuitive, easily adapting to any type of screen.

Like other wallets, allows the users to check their account, send and receive (only) Bitcoin and to determine whether your transactions are complete or not.

“We automatically mix your bitcoins to protect your privacy. This means that the balances on each address will be incorrect as seen from block explorers”, explains the website. Besides, with several security layers, the wallet users have a lot to remember:  the usual username and password, a PIN for authorising payments, a recovery key required when resetting the password and the PIN. Data that you can’t forget or lose, otherwise you can say goodbye to your account.

But there’s more, an additional layer of protection: a GPG fingerprint. Once this feature is active, will require the users to decrypt a piece of text as part of the login procedure. The wallet owners can still enable a two-factor authentication system through the Google Authenticator program, if they desire.

Besides getting a short-URL to your user account, the site also supplies embeddable payment buttons (so you can easily set up a donation link). There’s also good news for the developers, since the wallet provides API access.
