Hey there, folks!

We are a team of cryptocurrency enthusiasts behind Billion Wallet (screenshot) for iOS. It's common among developers to think about their project in a special way, and we are not an exception – we do feel like we created something different. We believe we have a reason to think like that, and we invite you to participate in a public beta test that allows you to play with all features without spending real bitcoins ㋛. Just download Billion TESTNET Edition from the App Store.

Here is what's unique about Billion:

Privacy
Not only Billion never asks you to enter email or phone number, but it also implements a unique feature called Reusable Payment Codes. Payment Code is a special kind of address that can be freely published online and no one will be able to calculate the amount received. Kind of Monero Stealth Addresses but in a Bitcoin world! You can read a high-level overview of this technology on our Medium blog (a 10-min read).

Usability
To make cryptocurrencies easy to use for everyone we have developed an entirely new visual paradigm. If you ever experienced struggle while using a crypto wallet, we encourage you to try Billion – that's something new on the market. You can read a brief explanation of Billion user-interface on Medium as well (4-min read), or watch a 30 seconds-long promo video.

Social
One of the most important aspects of Billion is a system of contacts based on Payment Codes. Once you have added your friend to a list – either using Air Connectivity (Bluetooth connection) or by importing/scanning a Billion Card – you can make payments without any copying/pasting/scanning. This way, a payment workflow is simplified drastically, and the privacy is not sacrificed at all. Moreover, such a system is cross-platform: you can add contacts from other wallets that support Payment Codes. As of now, Samurai and Stash on Android are two wallets that support Payment Codes (and Stash can be used on TestNet).


How to Participate
1. Download Billion TESTNET Edition from the App Store
2. Create a new wallet. Once it's synced, tap onto the balance tab to display your Billion card. Assign a pseudonym and avatar to make it more recognizable.
3. Share your BillionCard picture in comments, or join a dedicated Telegram channel. We will send you some test-bitcoins so you won't need to use any faucets!
4. Add BillionCards of other users who participate in beta testing to your list of contacts (tap onto 'Contacts' icon -> 'Add contact' -> 'Scan BillionCard' -> 'Extract QR-code from picture' and choose the image you saved to media library). Send them some coins, and tell us how do you enjoy the workflow.
5. If you have friends with whom you can test Billion irl, we urge you to test Air Connectivity and Billion Requests.

Thanks for reading and let's create the best mobile cryptocurrency wallet together!

P.S.
- Yes, there will be Android version later this year.
- Yes, there will be support for your lovely cryptocurrency (what's yours btw?)
- Yes, the wallet is open-source, but we still can't move to public development, so the code-base published on git-hub is a bit outdated

We have to polish the version on a single platform with one cryptocurrency first, and we need your help. We are looking forward to testing Billion with you!

P.P.S Please upvote for visibility 🔝. Thanks in advance!
