Here is an article and some stories of interest we discussed here at Classiarius.net.
Popular Bitcoin and Lightening Network wallet BlueWallet has released a smartwatch-compatible version of their wallet app, the first attempt to bring lightening support to the Apple hardware, according to a piece by Bitcoinmagazine, Mr Manning. On a recent twitter announcement the new app, was described, some of its functions showcased.
Clearly this new app has plenty to offer in such a small space, giving the user a menu that is surprising large. The BlueWallet product was expanded into a fully functional for the Lightening Network in late December 2018, as it was originally only a wallet for Bitcoin itself. The options also cover both Android and iOS, and since Android does not currently manufacture a smartwatch, the Lighting app is only available on Apple Watch. There are many features that include full encryption, the ability to use multiple wallets, support in 20 languages and much more. BlueWallet`s app seems to have many of the same features that any other conventional wallet platform would now offer. The speed factor has been much talked about as the Lighting Network has been heralded as a game changer for Bitcoin support, on the technical side. And it has alleviated the problems of scalability and latency.
Despite what many say, 2018 was a great year for cryptocurrencies, and blockchain – the super highway was built.
Here at Classiarius we have strong historical ties to the institutional investor communities in Tokyo, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore, and we have noticed since the end of 2017, that there have been ongoing investment, by major banks and brokerages as well as institutional investors, into digital platforms, mainly the settlement and custody of these products. It is like building a super-highway attached to airports and storage facilities. This is a true crypto and blockchain platform that China, Japan, and even US firms have designed and built. This can only be positive for the future of digital assets in trading and settlement.
