After a year of careful thinking and design iterations, we are finally revealing to the world our most courageous invention to date.
These inventions were aimed at removing friction so that anyone outside the cryptocurrency space could see HandCash as an attractive new kind of money app which they could recommend to their friends and family.
Duro is the last piece of the puzzle, and probably the most important one. …
We have always been known for our user experience oriented mobile wallet, with the goal of making Bitcoin easier and more accessible to everyday people with each new version. It’s not just part of our identity — it’s our identity!
With the launch of our 2.5 version back in December 2020, HandCash gained the ability to connect to all kinds of apps and games on any platform. …
Nos emociona anunciar nuestra alianza con la startup suiza Centi para ofrecer pagos nativos con Bitcoin en puntos de venta.
La meta de centi es realizar integraciones sin problemas ni esfuerzo en la infraestructura de pagos ya existente, permitiendo que los pagos con Bitcoin sean procesados al instante y convertidos a la moneda local del comerciante.
Esto es posible gracias al reciente auge en popularidad de los códigos QR fuera de Asia. El equipo de Centi vio la oportunidad tan pronto se presentó.
Este estándar siempre ha sido soportado por HandCash, pero quedaba restringido a los pagos de Bitcoin-a-Bitcoin. Nuestros…
We are excited to announce our partnership with the Swiss startup Centi to offer native Bitcoin SV payments in existing point of sale systems.
Centi’s goal is to integrate seamlessly and effortlessly into existing payment infrastructure, while allowing Bitcoin SV payments to be processed at any terminal and instantly converted into the merchant’s local currency.
This is possible due to the recent growth in popularity of QR Codes outside of Asia, and the Centi team took the opportunity as soon as it was presented.
This standard has always been supported by HandCash, but it was restricted to Bitcoin-to-Bitcoin payments. Our…
One of the biggest pain points in Bitcoin has always been the need for users to back up their Recovery Phrases, most commonly referred to as “12 words” or “seed phrase”. These are typically a list of 12 words that must be written down and stored in a particular order, without any typos.
Although it sounds tedious — and it is — as long as you keep your Recovery Phrase in a safe place, you should always have access to your Bitcoins. Doesn’t seem like a difficult thing to do, right?
Well, the reality is a bit more complicated.
Weeks ago, we announced in conjunction with Money Button, our efforts in making Bitcoin work in a peer to peer fashion again, as intended by its designer, Dr. Craig Steven Wright — AKA “Satoshi Nakamoto”. This new peer to peer protocol finally allows the application layer to decouple its scalability from the growth of the small world miner layer.
Today, we are announcing that both HandCash and Anypay have implemented the famous BIP270 protocol: a peer-to-peer (customer-to-merchant in this case) payments communication standard. It provides both online and retail merchants with safer, faster and more efficient checkouts.
While P2P Paymail…
Hace semanas, anunciamos junto con Money Button, nuestra colaboración para hacer que Bitcoin funcione de nuevo P2P (pagos directos entre pares), como fue la intención inicial de su diseñador, el Dr. Craig Steven Wright — también conocido como “Satoshi Nakamoto”.
Este nuevo protocolo P2P finalmente permite a la capa de aplicaciones desacoplar su escalabilidad del crecimiento de la capa de los mineros.
Hoy anunciamos que tanto HandCash como Anypay han integrado el famoso protocolo BIP270: un estándar de comunicación de pagos entre pares. Pagos directos entre el cliente y el negocio, sin intermediarios. …
Bitcoin: an electronic peer-to-peer electronic cash system… except that it hasn’t worked peer-to-peer for almost a decade.
The original BTC software had two methods to send payments: send to address and send to IP. This latter method consisted in that Alice could deliver the transaction directly to Bob, with no third parties involved.
That short sentence summarizes what we are all about. We at HandCash have earned a reputation as the leaders in usability and accessibility with our beloved mobile wallet app. HandCash has been the most popular and fun way to introduce new people to our young and exciting industry.
We provide a safe and easy way to pay in online and retail stores, and to send money instantly to anyone in any part of the world — with emojis! 😜
But there are two things missing here:
“skeuomorphism is a term (…) used to describe interface objects that mimic their real-world counterparts in how they appear and/or how the user can interact with them. A well-known example is the recycle bin icon used for discarding files.” According to interaction-design.org,
Our team of engineers got inspired by bills and coins denominations when thinking about smart ways of handling UTXOs in Bitcoin. By using a limited number of amount denominations, cash became easy to divide and group.
This technique is based on Dr. Craig Wright’s article Bitcoin’s privacy model, on which he describes a coin-splitting method that drastically increases…
