Yenom BCH Wallet Introduces New Bitcoin Cash Kit (BCK) For Developers

Bitcoin Cash Library Has Been Implemented in Apple’s iOS-Language Swift

The Bitcoin Cash (BCH) ecosystem keeps moving forward. This time, Yenom wallet developers introduced a Bitcoin Cash Kit (BCK) for BCH developers. The new BCK is a Swift implementation of the Bitcoin Cash protocol. This library for iOS is a very important milestone for the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem.

Bitcoin Cash Kit

Developers of Bitcoin Cash have been constantly working to make the network better. In the last months, an important number of new products and services were announced. One of the most important things to mention is that developers of the BCH-centric wallet Yenom decided to release a new library that is known as Bitcoin Cash kit (BCK).

This protocol allows users to maintain a wallet that let users send, store and receive Bitcoin Cash without having to download the full node.

The team behind Yenom said that app development in BCH is not as mature as the Ethereum network, which has caused developers to move away from Bitcoin Cash

Yenom explained about the BCK during the announcement:

“In order to solve such a problem, we forked from Mr. Katsumi Kishikawa’s famous Bitcoin Kit implemented in Swift, and developed a library for iOS that anyone can easily develop using Bitcoin.”

Furthermore, the hackathon will have three to four different teams and they will have to plan and develop a mobile application using Bitcoin Cash. The app has to be completed in a two-days limit. Before they start building the applications, there will be some lectures about the Bitcoin network and the libraries it has.

The prizes will be given to the teams that are able to deliver a working mobile app prototype based on BCH. The BCK supports different addresses’ formats such as base58, Cashaddr, P2PKH, and WIF. Other key features of the BCK are transaction building blocks, EC keys and signatures with BIP32 and BIP44 hierarchical deterministic wallets.

At the same time, there is a BIP39 implementation and SPV features are not quite complete yet, according to the developers.

Until now, Bitcoin Cash enthusiasts have been very happy with the latest developments made by Yenom. The introduction of the iOS lib related to the BCH protocol is a very important milestone for the community.

Swift has been used as a programming language that is related to the most valuable company of our times, Apple.
