BitBoss had a lot to present at the recent CoinGeek Seoul conference, but for other Bitcoin SV (BSV) businesses and developers, no release might be as useful as their Keyring library. To explain the code packages better, co-founder and chief architect Josh Robinson joined our Stephanie Tower on the sidelines of the event
Tower asked him about the most recent update to the Keyring library, and how it helps developers as Bitcoin returns to its original protocol with the February 2020 Genesis upgrade. “A big part of my talk was about the evolving nature of BSV and how there’s a lot of changes, including the Genesis upgrade,” he noted. “Our recent upgrade was adding the OP_FALSE OP_RETURN script type. And the main thing that made it really simple for us to do that was abstracting away different parts of the transactions and kind of organizing things in a way that we had the script types in a single area, and that let us easily add it.”
As BitBoss is a gambling centric company, Tower asked how much Keyring helps enterprises in that industry. “Keyring is pretty generic, but we do have a couple of projects and products we’re working on,” he replied. “We have a full wallet that’s using Keyring, a mobile app wallet that has gaming built into it. So it allows you to play baccarat and a number of different things using BSV or Tokenized tokens.”
The Genesis protocol upgrade on February 4, 2020 is a monumental step in the history of Bitcoin, and will see BSV returned as close as possible to the original protocol as envisioned by Satoshi Nakamoto. Visit the Genesis Hard Fork page to learn more.
