Pixel Wallet Allows Users To Send Bitcoin Cash Via Pictures
Looking to send or receive Bitcoin Cash [BCH]? To make things more interesting during the transaction processes, an innovative SPV Client dubbed, Pixel Wallet has been launched. Ultimately, the Pixel Wallet uses a steganographic process, which is one that hides every BCH meant to be transferred within an image or audio.
The idea behind this relatively interesting approach was first announced earlier this month, with plans for the launch to occur on the BCH TestNet. Turns of the Pixel Wallet’s beta release was done through the BCH MainNet and is currently only available for Android devices.
To give consumers a better picture as to how the Pixel Wallet works, News.Bitcoin.com claims to have tested the wallet and concluded that it is quite simple with a few glitches attached. Here is a quick breakdown as to how to get started:
- Download the Pixel Wallet App from Google Play
- Create and fund Wallet
- Select amount of BCH to send
- Click on the “Send” tab to generate an encrypted image and take a picture
On the receiver’s end, the image with the BCH will pop up and all they need to do is decrypt the image to gain control over the BCH.
News regarding the Pixel Wallet’s TestNet was first revealed on Twitter, in which several users were attentive as to what it was all about. Proclaimed as the “world’s first application to send BitcoinCash encrypted TX in a picture!”, at the time, a Twitter user, namely Dr Craig S Wright (@ProfFaustus) shared his positive outlook on the wallet by saying that, “It is the first app […] Not the first send, check my tweets. Yes, it is good.”
