Developers working on Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and that want to improve the network will have a new developer kit known as Cashport. The new software developer kit has been unveiled by creators of the Handcash wallet and will allow programmers to work with Bitcoin Cash in different platforms and websites.
This software developer kit (SDK) is open source and is based on the Bitcoin Cash micropayments system for Android.

The Cashport tool allows for one-click onboarding with the Handcash wallet. The service is free and there are no hidden fees for those interested in using it. Moreover, websites and applications using these services will have to hold users’ funds since the system does not offer custodial services.
Alex Agut, product designer and part of the Handcash team, explained that they want to create an ecosystem where money is always available to be used.
On the popular social network Reddit, he commented:
“[Cashport] is also for mobile apps and games – The goal is to create an ecosystem where your money is always available through thousands of apps and games. Just one account – No more deposits or withdrawals, copy and past or QR codes – Just flows.”
All the services are linked to the owner’s Handcash wallet. The SDK is also able to work with games and other mobile applications. Additionally, as the tool works in the background, developers are able to concentrate on the API and other user interaction. This would allow users to pay-per-minute or other micropayments on social media.
Those interested in the SDK can check it for Android and web typescript systems. The team is also working to, in the near future, release an iOS version of the SDK. In this way, users from different devices will have the possibility to access things with just a click.
Bitcoin Cash will be working in order to process micropayments and monetize user interactions in different platforms. This would allow programmers to develop quality content. Developers behind Handcash say that it is possible for developers to obtain API keys and implement the SDK in a very simple way.
