Over the past few months, we have seen several crypto currencies develop some sort of desktop lightweight wallet. Coins like DigitalCoin and WorldCoin, but you can now add BlackCoin to that list.
Although adding BlackCoin to the list might be a tad premature, as the lightweight client is only starting development as of today.
The project itself will be open sourced, and a GitHub link is available (click here). The developer , called nov3a4 , is expecting to have the client ready for testing next weekend.
The reason why project like a lightweight wallet are important, is because users won’t have to download a huge amount of data in order to synchronize with the BlackCoin network.
Some of the features on the “to-do list”, include :
– Paper wallet support
– Exchange rates for BlackCoin/Bitcoin and BlackCoin/fiat currency
– Scan BlackCoin addresses from QR codes with your webcam
– Much, much more…..
For a complete list of all “possible” features, you can click here.
Rumour has it that , once this project has been completed successfully, a BlackCoin Android wallet might be the next project, but we’ll keep you updated on that!
