After months of intense work, Jonathan Silverblood has finally published the design concept of Cashual Wallet – a digital wallet concept he has been developing. Silverblood a Bitcoin Cash developer and the brain behind Cash Accounts availed the copies of the concept, six months after releasing a mock up of the same.
He has originally created a dummy of what the wallet is expected to look like once work on it is over. His efforts, however, had hit a snag after he realized that the original design included a peer-reviewed wallet library which, by then, was nonexistent. However, about six months later, Cash Accounts creator is back with what seems to be a concept designed for designers of non-technical and user-friendly digital wallets.
The developer broke the news via a blog post, explaining that the essence of his publication was to “seriously help implement user-friendly wallets.” According to him, the features captured on the Cashual Wallet concept are all incorporated in the popular, open-source libraries, especially Bitpay’s favorite ones.
He termed the news about this breakthrough a “feedback” meant to motivate digital wallet developers and encourage them to work towards creating user-oriented wallets. The feedback thus outlines various principles that Silverblood thinks they should be followed when one’s developing a wallet.
His Thoughts Regarding Cashual Wallet
Through a series of screenshots, Silverblood outlined his thoughts on what, according to his understanding, are the most critical features required by non-techie cryptocurrency wallet users.
Top on his recommendations is the issue surrounding UX and why it should be simplified. To him, how a user feels when using a wallet is far much more important and he even attempts to explain this on his concept.
Another issue that’s common with wallet developers and which the concept attempts to solve is language barriers. Cashual Wallet, once it starts operating, is designed to assume the default language of the device that it runs on if the user’s most preferred language is absent.
Also, with Cashual Wallet, choosing a native fiat currency to be shown on the wallet is pretty straightforward. The wallet can automatically pre-select the right one or simply let the user do so.
Incredibly, Silverblood explains that the wallet can switch from day to night mode and verse versa. This, of course, depends on the user’s preferences, although it is, without a doubt, an awesome feature.
Another thing that possibly enhances the user-friendliness of Cashual Wallet is the fact that it leverages a combination of the use quintessential BCH identifiers and Cash Accounts protocol. Basically, it uses the former to complete payment data along with Silverblood-developed Cash Accounts.
What Is Cash Accounts?
When Jonathan Silverblood gave an update that work on Cash Accounts specification was almost complete and that a registration website was nearing completion, many got excited. However, now that it has started working, maybe you are wondering what exactly it is.
Cash Accounts specifically is an open-source program designed to use the Bitcoin Cash Chain and develop comprehensive technical identifiers required to create account names that are both human readable and user-friendly. Basically, how Cash Accounts work is that they guarantee the user the best, most seamless user experience possible by requesting them to give a name to be displayed on the screen whenever a payment is received.
How Registration Is Done
Registration is automatic, according to the Cashual Wallet’s blog post. All a user needs is to input a name they will use for their Cash Account. This then prompts the wallet’s reusable address to contact an authorized registration service and initiate a request that will require one to enter a name alongside the payment info. Verification of the entire process completes everything and makes the wallet usable again.
When The Wallet Is Finally Ready For Use
With the whole registration process over, the concept also details a seamless way of using the wallet. Essentially, you will know that it’s ready for use when you’ve finished registration and upon logging in, you are met with a blank home screen. There’s the history entry and the pending entry, both for the creation of the wallet and the creation of the account, respectively.
According to the concept’s developer, however, before the entire registration process is concluded, one can use the wallet in its traditionally plain way. A new user will need to use a technical identifier that’s pegged to the client.
The Future Is Bright
Already, Ifwallet, the Chinese Bitcoin Cash light client has already integrated Cash Accounts to its operations, incorporating it into its Android and iOS apps. If you look at their sending interface, you will notice that their name address system has it.
Jonathan Silverblood, however, expects to see other developers take up the challenge of enhancing it further. He says he will immensely appreciate any help offered by anyone who would like to see this Cashual Wallet be better.
