- bitcoin messenger
1. Usability: the easiest bitcoin wallet yet. One tap signup with facebook connect. Sending bitcoin is as easy as sending a facebook message. Send and receive bitcoin by entering a name. Even to people who are not your facebook friends. Of-course, you can also enter/paste a bitcoin address or scan a QR code.
2. Cross-platform: It’s all HTML, so works on any device with a browser: desktop, mobile, or tablet. It’s primarily designed to be used on a mobile device, so give it a try on iPhone, Android or any other device.
3. Security: We don’t hold your private keys - a password that you choose, plus a seed on our server hash to give your private key. We never receive your password, and we cannot access your bitcoins.
4. Messaging: the first bitcoin *messenger* changes the wallet paradigm of a list of single transactions, to “conversations” with a user or a bitcoin address. It’s similar to the way Apple changed the SMS inbox/outbox view to the friendly chat view that all phones use today. And since it’s a chat view, we’ve added messaging to the conversations, so you can chat with your counter-party. Instead of communicating through email/facebook/etc before making a transaction, you can communicate directly from within the wallet.
5. Payment requests: enter the amount, and an optional message, and the other user simply needs to click “accept” and the money is sent.
6. “thanx”: Off-chain transactions currency.
a. one thanx = one satoshi. Change one for the other at any time. All thanx are backed up by real satoshi on the blockchain. Audit/proof of solvency function allows you to see it for yourself (coming soon).
b. zero fees. Send even one thanx (=one satoshi), without paying fees.
c. no “bitcoin anxiety” - when you send thanx, you can cancel as long as the other side hasn’t accepted your thanx.
d. zero confirmation time. Once the thanx are accepted, the transaction is done.

- 100% reserve:
All thanx in the system are backed up by real satoshi on the real blockchain in the following addresses:
Hot wallet: 12thanx3dK8z4ztDdFEPx1FbvaWduPho28
Cold address: 123thanxEYFsecfU9eB4jWWrnESkCL4Y8N
I have sent 123.456789 BTC to the hot wallet: https://blockchain.info/tx/649391b4a83d21e20c705150b3fe9d7ed498cd7d589621e5ccf0a9d9c414d8b6
and then moved 111.1111101 BTC to the cold-storage address https://blockchain.info/tx/5d637e00157919ec86b0837496126211228a2caaab2e0b8e17e55d03c1b97321
leaving 12.3456789 BTC in the hot wallet.
All these BTC are reserved for rewards for bitconnect. If and when all the funds in the hot wallet are given away as rewards, an additional batch of 12.3456789 BTC will be moved there from the cold address.
The hot wallet will also be used to hold satoshi of users who wish to turn satoshi into thanx, and and back.
