The list of mobile Bitcoin wallets keeps growing on a regular basis, so the time has come to review some more applications that may be of use to our readers. As we have seen over the course of this series, most mobile Bitcoin wallets are focusing on ease-of-use while still keeping security in mind. Let’s see if Bitdash Bitcoin Wallet follow that trend, or offers something unique.
Ease-of-use and Elegant Design
One of the things you may notice right off the bat is that Bitdash Bitcoin Wallet uses a color scheme that is rather common in the world of Bitcoin and digital currency. The traditional blue-and-white design may remind you of various Bitcoin news out there. But their colors also create a tight and elegant design, which will look nice on your mobile device.
In terms of functionality, Bitdash Bitcoin Wallet offers your typical options such as sending and receiving BTC, as well as displaying your Bitcoin balance in one of the many supported local currencies. Users can generate multiple receiving addresses to keep funds separate or to create different “accounts” depending on the type of transaction.
But there is also the option of sending Bitcoin to multiple addresses in one transaction. Such a feature is something we do not often come across in mobile Bitcoin wallets. Whenever you are on the go and need to send a payment quickly, having the option to include multiple receiving addresses in one transaction could be a timesaver.
Focusing on Security
As you would come to expect from any self-respecting mobile Bitcoin wallet, security remains a strong point of focus. If we ever want Bitcoin to become a more commonly used form of payment, wallet developers will need to come up with adequate security protocols which do not interfere with the application’s ease-of-use.
Bitdash Bitcoin Wallet encrypts every user wallet in order to keep it safe from harm. But that is not all, as their application also offers an offline mode. Once again, this is a feature we do not encounter all that often when it comes to mobile Bitcoin wallets. The reason why this is called “offline mode” is because the wallet does exactly that : it cuts off any connection to the internet.
The offline mode will allow users to create a new Bitcoin wallet that can be used for “watch-only” purposes. Funds stored in this wallet address can be spent by creating an offline transaction, but there is a slight twist. You have to ensure all of the transaction details are correct before sending the transaction. Otherwise, the benefits of an offline mode will be nullified.
Other security measures include a PIN protection for accessing your mobile Bitcoin wallet when you have been switching between applications. And to top it all off, a new Bitcoin address can be generated to change transaction outputs, giving users an additional layer of privacy protection.
