Our last update was in May, and ho boy! We have been busy. On the latest versions a lot of improvements were introduced, most notable the option to Buy Bitcoin from the Local Trader, a p2p marketplace. And, Cobo Vault support, with QR codes, air-gapped PSBTs, one of the first of its kind. Let’s take a closer look on the latest developments and updates. There’s a lot to tell :)
Cobo Vault support with QR codes PSBTs
Introduced on the version 5.4.4, PSBTs (partially signed bitcoin transactions) with QR codes, this is the first implementation of BCR-UR (animated QR codes) between software & hardware wallets.
A nice contribution and collaboration with the Cobo Vault team. Thank you!
Buy Bitcoin on Local Trader
v5.4.3 features the ability to buy on the “Local Trader”. A p2p marketplace where you control your funds. You can now login (w/@hodlhodl), view offers, view contracts and accept offers. More info on the Local Trader
Input local currency
We struggle to add this feature, but the requests won’t stop coming, and it is understandable. I hope this will help more than it will cause any problems related to exchange rates, price volatility, etc.
We are going to keep a look on its evolution closely.
Camera/Scan on the main screen
There’s now a fast access button from the main screen to access the camera directly. This can be use for different purposes, like, to scan a QR code, to make a payment, to receive a payment, to withdraw a Azte.co voucher, etc.
Entropy via coins and dice roll
version 5.4.4 also introduces a new advanced feature for the more advanced users out there that don’t want to trust BlueWallet entropy generation. Entropy for wallet generation with Coins and Dices. Have fun! :)
Support for Electrum wallet seeds
You can now easily import your Electrum generated wallets to BlueWallet with ease.
These are the notable changes, a lot more fixes and improvements were made under the hood. The summer is here, and we are not stopping, more goodies to come, more innovations to be released. Follow us on twitter to keep an eye on it.
