Edge – Airbitz New Secure Bitcoin Cryptocurrency Wallet Platform?

From its very inception, Airbitz always distinguished itself from your run-of-the-mill bitcoin wallet. Choosing to provide accessible, familiar, but still incredibly private client-side security, Airbitz has been a popular choice with crypto newbies and old pros alike, and all without allowing any 3rd party – including Airbitz – access to a user’s personal details or money.

The core conceit of the Airbitz wallet was its innovative approach to securing sensitive information. Using client-side security that was user friendly was wildly different than traditional, centralized server-side security solutions. These traditional approaches are highly susceptible to large-scale data security breaches, resulting in the theft of personal information for hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people at a time, which is why Airbitz always decided to skirt the edges of this centralized model.

With living on the innovative, leading edge of blockchain security at the very core of Airbitz’s brand, it has has since decided to rebrand as “Edge.” The company plans to continue to deliver products and services that are in line with its iconoclastic approach to security models in an effort to provide users with better control over their data.

Edge Wallet

The first of these services includes the relaunch of Airbitz Wallet as Edge Wallet, incorporating an innovative modular architecture that can interact with any existing digital asset. Completely rebuilt and remastered, Edge Wallet features easy ways for blockchain developers to support the wallet through a simple plugin. Additionally, native support for Shapeshift provides Edge Wallet users the ability to convert one digital currency to another seamlessly.

At launch, Edge Wallet will be ready to transact a number of popular digital currencies, including Bitcion and Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, Matryx, Wings, and Augur REP. In addition to Edge Wallet’s plugin expandability and Shapeshift support, Bitcoin and Litecoin SegWit transactions are also supported.

Making Dapps Usable through Edge

With privacy, security, and ease of use at the forefront of Edge’s core mission, the company is keenly aware of the need to develop decentralized and secure methods for using Web 3.0 applications. Thanks to the development of the decentralized application – or “dapp” – and the increased usage of private keys, Edge has the goal of aiding both users and developers in making applications secure and private but still accessible.

With the Edge Security Software Development Kit, users will be able to use Edge Wallet to authenticate and examine funds in dapps that support the SDK. Partner apps such as Wings and Augur can be launched by just scanning a barcode, and users can manage their Wings, REP, and Ether funds held in Edge Wallet through these dapps directly, all without having to use cumbersome copying and pasting to facilitate communication between wallets and blockchain apps.

Additionally, users no longer have to leave Edge at all to convert tokens from one dapp to another. Thanks to fully integrated Shapeshift functionality, users can convert Augur REP tokens to tokens that will reside in Wings or any other dapp – and all of this is done without exposing the user to 3rd parties.

Edge – the new face of the decentralized web. Sign up for your limited access beta release of Edge Wallet today.
