Is it a Bitcoin app?

Ah okay, it's an Apple based wallet. I have a predisposition to categorize all such products as hype and ignore them. Since it is years behind Android products, I have no need to learn about it. If they do anything innovative with it, I will hear about it in main stream media.

when a noob is mentioning a wallet that well experienced people have not heard of, then its obvious that the noob is advertising his own product.

i would only advise people to stick in maybe $10 of bitcoin at most into such new/untested/third party services. and never, ever, EVER store your entire hoard in a third party service, even if it has been tested or ben available a long time.

get out of the mindset that third party services (banks) are trustable, simply because they exist. bitcoin is about trusting yourself to hold funds yourself, not someone else.

be careful out there guys.

I'm the author of breadwallet. I also coauthored bip39 and took over maintainence of bip38

Breadwallet is the first SPV wallet for ios, so unlike other ios wallets, it's not using any trusted servers for blockchain data, it's a bitcoin network client.

It's also far more secure than any web, desktop or android wallet. All iOS devices are hardware aes encrypted by default, providing good protection in the event of physical theft. And the ios security model protects you from malware (a remote jailbreak exploit would be required for malware to be able access your keys).

Major features:
Bip37 spv
Bip32 hd
Bip39 backup phrase
Bip38 password encrypted key import
Bip70 payment protocol
Open source

cbeast, what android wallet are you using that has these features?

The driving design principle for the project is simplicity and security for regular people, not just bitcoin experts or techies who understand computer security.

I wanted to create a beautiful and intuitive experience, to bring more people to bitcoin while protecting them from theft. I'm also pleased to say that breadwallet is now listed on bitcoin.org "choose your wallet" and received favorable coverage from coindesk: http://www.coindesk.com/ios-users-get-first-decentralized-bitcoin-wallet-breadwallet/

Current version is for iOS 7.1 and iOS8. Next version will likely be iOS8 only to support touchid integration.

I'll shy away from this. First, I'm not the biggest Apple fanboy but I do use some of their devices. Second, with Apple's past experience with apps I wouldn't be too keen to use this. Not to mention, their censorship.

@acs267 I can appreciate where you're coming from. Using a locked down platform is a trade off. You are subject to the whims of the device manufacturer. I would encourage you though to consider the security implications of holding bitcoin on a general computing device vs one that limits what can and can't be executed on it. Additionally, apple hardware has very consistent and high standards with respect to hardware encryption of user data, and the secure enclave (where wallet seed is held) that is hardened against em side channel attacks. And with the sandboxed/signed-code-only security model there are far fewer opportunities for malware to get installed.

I can understand the reticence, after all this is the wild west of bitcoin, but setting that aside for a second this looks like the 'killer' app that everyone (well, at least me) has been waiting for!?

Bitcoin wallet, on your iPhone, without trusting keys to a third party? Point and click payment! I'm pretty excited.

Now, on the downside, I just have to trust voisine, a random guy on the internet that wrote some code, or if you dig around a pretty reliable looking guy that has been involved in all sorts of software/startups/companies/projects. Social presence, bitcoin involvement going back some way, it would have to be a *really* long con....

Well, it wouldn't be the first time and I guess it won't be the last time I trust *someone*

Thanks for this voisine - plz don't steal my monehs Wink

Thanks @sgbett

I've mentioned elsewhere that I'd like to get deterministic builds working for iOS, so you don't have to trust me, just the code which you can verify. Worst case is that I can't get it to build deterministically, but then third parties could still build it from source and do a binary diff, to ensure that any differences are only normal build differences and not a result of different code. I do check to make sure that the app store build is identical the one I upload to apple from my developer account, so we know no apple employee slipped anything in.

I downloaded this to check how it worked and have to thank Voisine for providing a free an easy-on-the-eye, easy to use app.

I will be keeping this on my phone to use for any situation where I might need to send/receive BTC while out and about away from the PC.

Possible additions for the next release:

- Add Touch ID option for verification
- Allow PIN to be between 4 - 8 numbers
- Add option to show live BTC ticker in app as well as shortcut

Thanks Voisine




I know, I know... but the thing is I cannot help it because even though I am an absolute gentleman... I also happen to be a CheekyChappy after all:)
