Title: Nuro: a revolutionary wallet modeled after traditional internet banking UIs
Post by: true-asset on August 15, 2014, 12:40:00 AM
Nuro (github.com/urocoin/nuro-intel-xdk (http://github.com/urocoin/nuro-intel-xdk)) is a revolutionary cryptocurrency wallet modeled after traditional internet banking user interfaces, with the intent to create a friction-less migration path for "Ordinary Joe" users coming from the fiat world, to the crypto world.

Nuro is 100% open-source GPL v3 so security and safety can be vetted by all.

Nuro works on any (up to date) browser and all (modern) mobile devices, because it is built using standards compliant HTML5, CSS and JavaScript, along with Intel App Framework/Apache Cordova for native app store distribution and native look/feel/performance.

You can try the app here: nuroapp.github.com (http://nuroapp.github.com) (live web wallet for ANY desktop/mobile), github.com/urocoin/nuro-intel-xdk/releases (http://github.com/urocoin/nuro-intel-xdk/releases) (desktop and android downloads) and also on Google Play (Nuro & Nuro L for legacy devices)

“NURO” SMARTPHONE APP OFFERS BITCOIN ADOPTERS FAST, SAFE, AND
CONVENIENT ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL INTERNET BANKING


August 14, 2014, Sydney, Australia—The URO Foundation announces the launch of
“NURO”: the first open-source application specifically designed to facilitate and encourage
mass adoption of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. NURO’s intuitive design, with a similar
interface to traditional banking platforms, significantly reduces the learning curve that was
previously considered a major barrier to adoption of cryptocurrencies.
NURO is optimized for real world integration, including for use on inexpensive phones in
the developing world. Originally developed to address the needs of urea fertilizer
wholesalers and farmers by providing a wallet that would minimize the technological
resources needed to permit fast, secure transactions. The platform’s inclusion of Bitcoin,
Urocoin and Litecoin, with more coins to follow, gives NURO a universal utility that
enables traditional banking consumers across the globe to easily transition into trustless,
decentralized banking.

NURO offers consumers the following features:

* Accounts are accessible on all devices simultaneously, anywhere in the world.

* Unlimited free accounts for funds separation (e.g. savings, cheque, investment, retirement).

* Accounts can be opened by anyone, with no paperwork or no application process.

* Lowers transaction processing times from days to minutes compared to traditional internet
banking solutions.

* Transactions are processed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, even during public holidays.

* Convenient payment request creation via QR code, email and SMS.

* Zero Knowledge Privacy (ZKP) technology completely avoids the storage and
transmission of usernames, passwords and PIN codes. This ensures the user’s credentials are
never eavesdropped or stolen, even when the server is compromised.

* Open source code ensures independently verifiable security to avoid possible hidden
vulnerabilities, trust issues and other risks associated with commercial closed-source
financial products.

* Employs BlockCypher (blockcypher.com) cloud architecture to reduce loading times from
20 seconds to 2 seconds compared to the standard “blockchain” wallets.

* Includes capability to support point-of-sale and fiat currency exchange solutions.

NURO is now available on all smartphones, tablets and PCs via nuroapp.github.com, and is
being published on Google Play, the Apple App Store, Windows Store, Windows Phone
Store, Chrome Web Store, Tizen Store, Amazon Appstore, Firefox Marketplace, NOOK
Apps and the Facebook App Center.

Nuro is a joy to use. Every time someone new enters the crypto-world, we have to explain how to backup the wallet.dat file (make sure it's encrypted first). Copy it to multiple locations. You then have to explain about change addresses and that these new addresses are normally hidden from the user. This means that every time you spend something from your wallet, you should really go through the backup and copy process ( http://bitzuma.com/posts/five-ways-to-lose-money-with-bitcoin-change-addresses/ )

It's a nightmare.

Nuro is the closest we've come to mimicking an ordinary bank account - without the bank. It's fast, secure, cross-platform and simple to understand. We need more of this sort of thinking if we expect real-world adoption.

Bravo.

The wallet seems very promising, also backed by blockcypher.
