Introducing Bitlab's real-time Bitcoin wallet API!

https://bitlab.co/

Q1. How is this different from running bitcoind and using RPC to manage everything?

A1. That requires you to buy hosting, manage the server, backup the wallet, etc. Also, if you want to scale your service, you'll need to invest in more servers, setup clustering and load balancing. Wouldn't it be nice to replace all of that with a free, easy-to-use API? That's what our service does and more.

Q2. How is this different from blockchain.info and other web based wallet API's?

A2. Our API is built using Firebase. To understand part of why our API is so awesome, you need to understand why Firebase is awesome. Firebase allows you to write a real-time scalable service that automatically notifies and synchronizes multiple clients when data is added, changed or deleted to the database rather than the clients having to constantly poll for updates. See their multiplayer Tetris demo (https://www.firebase.com/tutorial/#example/tetris) that was built using hardly any network code because Firebase handles all of the synchronization for you.

Q3. Do you have a demo?

A3. Yes, we've built a single page wallet app using our API. This is a complete wallet app that is entirely HTML, JavaScript and CSS. There is no backend required because we provide that for you.

Demo: https://bitlab.co/wallet

Source Code: https://github.com/bitlabco/bitlab-wallet

Q4. How much does it cost?

A4. Nothing! It's free AND open source. If you don't want to use our infrastructure, build your own!
